Climb harder for less.

Just because the Mad Rock Drifter Climbing Shoe costs about half the price of it's competitors doesn't mean it lacks the juice to get things done. In fact, this may be the least expensive shoe to ever climb V15. Ultra-sticky Science Friction rubber keeps this Mad Rock shoe glued to the rock while the dual hook-and-loop closures lock your foot in place. Instead of getting all overkill with useless features, this shoe uses an unlined leather upper which molds to your foot as you wear it.

Awesome price for excellent shoes. Also nice quality in the wall and pretty comfortable while climbing


not to shabby

  • Fit:True to size

These are on the cheaper end of climbing shoes and I personally dont believe in skimping out on my shoes but when I was a little pressed for cash these sure were nice to have. They took me about 3 climb sessions to break in but now they are comfortably snug as they should be and are just showing the smallest signs of ware after several uses in the gym and on real rock.


Comfort for gym, fine for outside

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

I got these in the same size as my FiveTen Anasazi Verde lace-ups (10.5) and they fit comfortably - not quite as snug, but I didn't want that for hour-long workouts on my woody at home. They've held up well over the last 6 months, and were fine for some outdoor slabby bouldering on granite when I just wanted to throw some shoes on.

The heel is great, even with the extra room available, and the rubber has held up well over months of use every 2-3 days. I got them cheap, and they've surprised me; decent quality for overhanging stuff on plastic, and enough grip to trust them on friction slabs outdoors. The rubber is a little stiff, but that works for me as far as training goes, and that's what I'd recommend these for - an all-purpose gym shoe.

Worth a punt under $70, and for less than $60 you're getting a great deal, especially for an everyday workhorse shoe.


Excellent Value and Performance

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I have been climbing for over 30 years and I love these shoes. For the price you can't beat them. They perform as well as many shoes that cost twice as much. The edge with precision, they smear well, they pocket well and they are soft enough to pull with on the steep angles. Whether you are getting these for an extra pair of training shoes or as your full time shoes I would recommend them to anyone. As with any unlined leather shoe, they will stretch so make sure you downsize 1 full size to 1/2 size.


Good Shoe!

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I bought these about a month ago. i bought these because i'm just getting into the sport and didn't want to dump a bunch of cash or need anything too aggressive.

i ordered a half size smaller and they are relatively comfortable.

I would recommend these to anyone thats getting into the sport and is sick of rental shoes at the gym.


Replacement shoes.

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I climb a few times a month and I've got to say these are a pretty good pair of shoes. They fit me just about perfectly where 8.5 shoes normally fit me. A good tight fit and toe-bind to keep your feet self-supporting on the rocks.

The rubber seems a little less quality than I would like, but I find they do the job just fine for a budget shoe.


My First Shoes

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I bought these because my friend had the same pair, and as I was new to climbing, I didn't want to spend a lot. I wasn't very satisfied. It's tough to get a grip on holds with the toe, something about the rubber is too tough. Furthermore, after only about 12 climbs indoors, the top strap tore completely loose and I was left without left shoe. I would spend the extra dollar to get a higher quality pair next time.


First shoe

    First climbing shoe and I am satisfied with their performance. I got them on sale and i believe they were worth what i paid for. They stretch out a bit so size them smaller. The only things I would really want to change is the breathability and the room in the heel. Looking forward to upgrading but as of now these will do.
