    More climb, less whine.

    The Mad Rock Flash Climbing Shoe shows that having an all-around shoe doesn't require sacrificing edge in your chosen vertical discipline. The Flash tackles competitions and multi-pitch days alike. Mad Rock threw the stickiest rubber they could conjure, Formula #5, into this design for optimal adhering power. A padded neoprene tongue keeps you comfortable and encourages circulation, while traditional construction earns this sensitive shoe its 'all-around' designation.

    Great beginner/gym shoe

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 9.5

    Great shoe for the gym and beginners. The sole is tough and firm enough to stand on small lips but thin enough to feel points and areas. I mostly use it as a gym shoe because its a light but durable work horse that's easy to take on and off. Ive used it outside on different types of rock as well and its still holding up with no issues. I'd give it a 9/10 stars just because the toe isn't as "sharp" as more expensive brands so a very tiny lip might feel a little less stable. Stable enough but not like the super Pro model shoes. Regardless of the price (which is super cheap) id buy it again. For sure.

    Inexpensive but low quality

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 9.5

    I got these as a first climbing shoe and was disappointed with the lack of durability. Also in my inexperience I blindly followed the reviews recommending a half size above my street-shoe size and got a shoe that was way too large for my feet. That is nothing against the shoes, just want to warn other beginners that you do need to try shoes on in a store.

    I found that the shoe's quality was marginal and proceeded to wear out rather quickly. The paint on the sole and heel didn't line up with the grooves in the rubber new but after thier first weekend of use the paint was peeling off the rubber heel. The rubber on the sole is quite soft but it rippled very heavily under my big toe and after a few weeks of use the edges of the sole had lifted off the rand in several places along the toe.

    After a few weeks of use I replaced these with a set of well fitting Tarantulace's which were not much more expensive, are very comfortable and have lasted nearly a year.

    Inexpensive but low quality

    Awesome Shoe!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 11.5

    I bought this shoe as my first climbing shoe ever after trying on gym rental shoes!! I really like the feel and the rubber heal. I wear a street shoe size of 11 and I bought these in 11.5. At first I thought they were too tight because my middle toe on both feet would get the skin rubbed off but I put band-aids on them and kept climbing! after about 5 or 6 climbing sessions the shoes stretched some and became more of a relaxed fit where I didn't even have to worry about my toes hurting. Going a half size up from my street shoe was the PERFECT choice! These shoes feel amazing now.

    Not true to the size, the jury is still.

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 10

    I wear regular shoes size 10, order the size 10 and it was a half inch too small, sent back for the size 11 since they do not have the 1/2 size. Will write more

    Adequate for the job

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 13.0

    I've been using these shoes for indoor climbing (V1-V4) for a few months now about 3 times a week. They are holding up pretty well with some caveats.

    1. I normally wear a size 12 street shoe but the 12 in these shoes seemed way too tight for me to get onto my foot so I bought a 13. The 13 became comfortable after a few wears, possible too comfortable, which may result in some performance loss. if i had to do it again I may have gotten the 12 and worn it a few times to stretch it out a bit more but retain a tight fitting climbing shoe.

    2. Some of the black rubber has worn down enough on the heel that I'm showing some orange rubber. This doesn't seem to affect performance.

    3. The shoes will stain your feet orange the first few wears but it comes off in the shower. I don't wear socks while climbing so I'm not sure how yours would turn out.

    Great Affordable Beater.

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

    I got these shoes to be an affordable and comfortable shoe to use both indoors and out. I wear an 8.5 street shoe, and got these in EU 41. They're just about perfect for me in that size. I can stand around in them to belay, and they aren't too loose for the more delicate footwork. I do have a small heel, so I have significant dead space in that department, but that's pretty typical for me.

    I've used these in the gym, on garage woodies, and outdoors. They edge surprisingly well for such a cheap shoe, and impressed me thoroughly on the vertical, techy routes that are common in my local crags. My only real complain is that the velcro straps like to come undone, but that is likely because my foot is low volume and when I tighten them down they have significant loose ends.

    Overall, if you're looking for a sub-$100 pair of shoes that won't let you down on most routes, these are worth your consideration.

    Great so far!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small

    I haven't had a chance to take this climbing too much because I'm trying to find replacement shoes for my brother since we go climbing together, but the shoes have been great! I normally wear a size 13 but the 12.5 feels just as tight as it should, and I've already made huge improvements in my routes as compared to using rental shoes at the gym. The shoes were also on sale, so it was a great bargain.

    Great shoe!

    • Size Bought: 9

    I'm a newbie climber started about 4 weeks ago. Bought these shoes after wearing the Mad Rock rentals at the gym. Used 9.5s at the gym but got these in 9s. Shoe street size is usually 9-9.5 since I have wide feet. My 2nd toe is longest on my foot and the size 9 was super tight for the first day of climbing. By the 2nd day though, the shoe has stretched out nicely with my toes still slightly bent for a good tight fit. Been climbing with these for over 2 weeks now and everything is perfect.

    I've had these shoes for about 2.5 months now and they're still working great. My feet don't get as orange anymore from the dye. Velcro is awesome to easily put on and take off the shoes. Couldn't have asked for anything more

    4 months of gym climbing 2-3 times a week have work holes in the rubber. As others have said, the rubber doesn't last very long but I'm planning to resole as I do like the fit.

    Definitely worth the money.

      I find these to be my go to shoe for taking it easy or moderate trad. They do wear alittle quickly, but you can get two pair for the price of a pair of VS's. These aren't the shoes for hard sends, but if you want a pair of shoes that are comfortable to have on all day these are it. I've owned alot of "cheapo shoes" in my time and I like these the best. Fit is alittle large. I bought about a half size smaller than my street size and since these are my comfort shoes I find that about perfect.

      Great multi pitch mellow

        I climb mellow multi pitches, and love this shoe. They do stretch out quite a bit, but I bought them to hurt and they feel like a cast now when I put them on. I climb on the colder days don't know why but I do any ways. If I have to warm up my feet its easy to take on and off on the wall, and they don't really have pressure points

        Definitely a beginner shoe

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: Runs large

        I started climbing on sandstone this sumer and the shoe was great for about a month. It started to stretch a lot. i would recommend getting a very very tight shoe to get the most out of it. With that in mind within 3 months i put holes in the toe of both shoes. These shoes are not very durable, but if one is trying to go cheap this is an good shoes. If your into climbing spend the money and get some la sportivas.

        a fine beginner shoe

          these shoes wil perform decently out of the box, but my buddies and i all agree that madrock rubber wears down quicker than other brands. then your edging performance and ability to toe in on small holds will suffer. also, i thought the two velcro straps were narrow and i couldn't get the dialed in fit that i expect from other shoes.

          First item I purchased from

            I purchased the original Flash shoes several years ago. I found Mad Rock's quality to be on par with other manufacturers. The durability of these shoes was excellent and I wouldn't hesitate to purchase the Flash 2.0 shoes.

            A girl lovin this "men's shoe"

              This is not my first climbing shoe, I am coming from the La sportiva, Nago and a variety of Evolv shoes. I was sceptical, especially with the gel-injected heel. But love them. They are the most comfortable shoe I've had (my foot shape: wide toe box, narrow heel). But they have performed well so far in every situation I've put them: gym mostly 5.10 range, trad multi-pitch, granite crack/face, sandstone. I spend a lot of time in my shoes, so the gooshy heel is nice. People have complained of orange dyed feet...not had that problem. Overall, I love these shoes, they perfrom as well as my more expensive La Sportiva's. I guess we'll see how long they last!

              A girl lovin this "men's shoe"


                As many have said, these are good starter shoes. I bought these is size 9.5 US (recommended from sizing chart). When I first tried them I thought no way these will ever fit. After some breaking in they fit very nicely and I feel comfortable and in control on the wall with them. They are a huge step up from rental shoes for a fair price (especially if on sale at backcountry). I would recommend for novice/recreational climbers.

                Value $$$

                  This isn't a super aggressive or super durable shoe. But it delivers 90% of the performance of a comparable 5.10/evolv shoe, for HALF the price. If you have less than 1 year climbing experience, don't waste money on a more expensive shoe that you'll shred while learning. In this price range, the unlined leather is nice too.

                  0.5 size down from street shoe size gives comfortable, full-day wear.

                  Unanswered Question

                  Looking for a less aggressive shoe to give my toes a break. I have the Evolv Shamans and love them. They are 8.5 and my normal street shoe size is a 9. Since these are a lot flatter would 8.5 still give me tight comfortable fit without being too tight or would a 9 be the way to go? Id rather try on shoes but the closest place to where I live is over 1.5 hours away.
