Jeremy M.wrote a review of Mad Rock M5 Climbing Shoe on January 22, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
The Mad Rock M5's are my favorite shoe to date. They have excellent performance on all types of rock from Valley slabs, Font slopers to Heuco roofs. Mad Rock continues to improve their product line every year and this is my favorite update to the line.
The rubber is super sticky in cold and warm conditions and has good durability.
Toe rubber is perfect for scummy toe hooks.
The heel isn't extra bulky so it's easy to place and doesn't slide around a lot.
2 Velcro straps make it easy to get in and out of while keeping the fit tight.
Price can't be beat for the quality.
