Make the right move with the medium flex and checkerboard print of the Mad Rock Trickster Climbing Shoe. The Science Friction 2.2 rubber is the stickiest of the icky, and the flat sole gives you a better edge on crimps. The Trickster’s 3D molded heel cup has reverse hook tread for heel hooks or the descent of that granite troll you just topped out.

Great first shoe

I bought these two years ago as my first shoe, and I didn't know it at the time, but I sized them very aggressively. I'm ready to replace them, and am thinking about buying another pair I liked them so much. They have held up to lots of indoor and quite a bit of outdoor climbing. The guy up there is right, if you size them small they will torture your feet but preform well. Even after two years, I still couldn't wear them for more than two routes in a row, but until I wore the edges round there wasn't anything my feet wouldn't stick to. Great all around shoe- I've even crack climbed in them without a problem. I was always happy with the edging, love the heel (I don't think I can find another shoe that fit as well as these did in the heel), and they didn't stretch on me. Definitely better choice for a beginner/intermediate shoe than the usual Evolvs.

Good all arounder

i got these and they can handle anything i throw at them. the only thing they aren't the best at is climbing crack but ohterwise they rock. I climb about a 450 bouldering and a 5.10+ on sport and i havent' felt the need for a different or more aggressive shoe.

Good gym shoe

Pros: Good all around. I have used these shoes for bouldering, sport, trad and crack. It is a capable shoe. The biggest strength is really good heel hooks. They smear pretty well, and they are decent for edging.

Cons: Bad for crack climbing (pain and performance). Otherwise it is a compromise shoe. Not a real high performance shoe in any category. Also if you size the shoe aggressively in order to get the most performance for bouldering and sport climbing you will want to get out of them as soon as you are off the wall (multi-pitching is out of the question). The synthetic top "leather" is not as soft and does not stretch as well as real leather. The synthetic shoes will also start to smell horrible after some use and it takes effort to make sure they aren't offensive. I use the washing machine, disinfectant spray, cedar blocks AND dryer sheets.

Conclusion: If you size these shoes aggressively you can get a lot of performance for gym climbing and moderate boulder and rope climbing. If you are starting out and you dont want to invest in 2 or 3 different pairs of shoes this is a great starting point.


Comments: I sized these shoes down to 8.5 from my 10.5 street shoes. Since they are synthetic, they will form to your foot but the top "leather" will not stretch as much as actual leather. My level is around V5 for bouldering and 5.11 on sport. At this point I am not out-climbing these shoes.

Look no further

I have been climbing hard for a little over a year, and these shoes have stuck with me every bit of the way. Climbing at The Red and in the gym I've always been able to challenge myself, only to wonder when my grip will give out not the shoes. I am anxious to try some more aggressive shoes, but I am 100% satisfied with the trickster's.

Responded on

I ordered the tricksters in the same size as my regualr shoes. After a brief break in period, the shoes fit great. Comfortable, and able to wear for an extended period of time. I did not notice any air bubbles as I do with 5.10 projects, but the style is much different. After a year and six months the velcro still holds well. Sorry to say there is no way to escape the stink.
