    The Remora Climbing Shoe is Mad Rock's do-it-all slipper for climbers who can't have separate shoes for boulders, sport routes, and gyms. With a moderately stiff, slightly downturned design, the Remora performs on any climb at steep to vertical angles. Science Friction rubber edges on jibs with ease, and it encapsulates the forefoot for toe-hooking prowess. The SynFlex upper conforms to your foot without much stretch.

    Nice for the gym

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    Shoe has great sticky rubber and and the slip on makes it great for the gym, highly recommend.


      Please do not change this shoe, or it's price. I honestly am not sure if Mad Rock realizes the quality to price ratio they have on this shoe but F***. It does it all, I think, I cannot attest to more than 65 degrees, but don't doubt its performance there either. I have a good job, enough money to buy multiple high end shoes, but wouldn't unless I was pro and getting money to wear them in which case it's a moot point (cuz dat be free). Anyways, these shoes are the best overall shoes I have worn in a long history of climbing shoes. Cracks, check, slabs, check, overhangs, check,indoor, f*** yes. I sized down a full size from redlines and half size from sharks. Redline 11 shark 10.5 remora 10. I can wear them for 2 hrs straight and still get the performance I need. If you can only afford one pair of shoes get these, if you can afford multiple get these. Nuf said.

      Add this to your arsenal!

      The Mad Rock Remora is a very comfortable shoe. It has a good toe for smearing and slab climbing. The heel is comfortable and solid. I prefer this shoe for less steep routes when smearing in mandatory. Although I've worn the Remora on all types of routes and it always performs adequately. The shoe runs a little large I recommend sizing down a full size. All in all it’s a great all around shoe that is easy to get on and off. I strongly recommend adding this shoe to your arsenal.

      Soft and Sticky

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

      Ever since the mocs got bumped up to $125 I've been searching for a new slipper. I was initially skeptical after a review in California Climber called these "great for narrow feet". I have fat feet and I was worried these would be another evolv addict or la sportiva cobra. Nope, not even close. These are wide and soft. The rubber is great and the slight down-turned big toe gives just enough purchase for little overhanging pockets. The rubber is SOFT, like broken in moc soft. Not at all the planks that the addicts are. I would hate to try and edge and stand on sharp features all day, but for most everything else , these are great.

      I went a half size down from my street shoe. This should be good for all day comfort and crack. Full size probably would have been good, if I was bouldering and doing steep stuff only.

      The rubber is awesome, I feel super confident on nubs and smedges. The rubber on the heel is pretty thin, my ankle was getting pretty sore after a few sharp heel hooks.

      Not sure how long the rubber will last, will do a follow-up review once I get there.

      Remoras: A Versatile Shoe

        The Remoras are a very versatile shoe. I can use them for more vertical climbs as well as my more overhung projects. This being said while they perform well on both, I prefer them on more vertical terrain because they aren't overly agressive. They feel pretty tight when you first put them on, which is why I only like to downsize by a half size. The heel had more room in it than I would have liked, but it still could perform well. The toe fit me superbly, which is why I think they're such a good fit for more vertical climbs.

        Great fit and super sticky

        I've been sport climbing and crack climbing for 8 years and have tried most of the shoes on the market. I have never been happy with a slipper before. Slippers have in general, felt sloppy, poor fitting and too soft for edging.
        The Remora is completely different. It has a more precise, slightly narrower fit than most slippers and delivers a ton of power to the toe. The friction on the rubber is the best I've tried.

        I have worn two sizes, one a full size down from my street shoe for bouldering and sport climbing, and the other a half size up from street shoe for crack climbing. When sized appropriately, these shoes are incredible for crack climbing as well. The toe profile is slim enough for thin cracks, and the high-friction rubber grabs rock hard. The extra rubber on the toe adds a bit of toe profile thickness, but the added friction makes up for that.

        The Remora is quite comfortable and easy to get on with the pull-tabs.

        Overall, this has become my go-to shoe for boulders, sport climbs, and cracks. I use it for everything other than very steep projects with small feet requiring a lot of toe in.
        The Remora will not perform as well on really steep rock with tiny feet where a super aggressive shoe can help toe in. For this, I use a more aggressive shoe like the Redline

        I love the remoras! New go-to shoe

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        These shoes are great! The shoe fits like a glove all around your foot. It is a perfect medium between an aggressive downturned shoe and a flat slipper perfect for edging. There is a slight amount of aggressiveness mixed with the perfect flatter sole, making this shoe perfect for any type of climbing from hard boulders to multi pitch slab. It is pretty soft but I normally dislike soft slippers and these have totally changed my mind! The heel fits perfectly to my heel (which I often struggle to find with slip-ons). My favorite part of this shoe is its edging ability. These things can edge on anything and are perfect for smearing and micro-nubs. Also, these shoes have the best rubber I have ever felt. They stuck together out of the box!! and the rubber is extremely durable. The remora's are slightly soft but form sturdily around your foot for the extreme precision. Extremely comfortable even when wearing very sized down. Definitely the best slippers I have ever climbed in and these are now my go-to every day shoes. For sizing, I wear an 11-11.5 street shoe, 9.5 Sharks, and 8.5 Remoras (so size down because they will stretch and run a little large!) 100% recommend

        Favorite shoe

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        These are the most comfortable climbing shoes I've ever worn even when sized aggressively. The rubber is super soft and insanely sticky. I use them for everything except when I need to do hard heel hooks, something inherently lacking in a slipper. I'm a 9.5 in street shoes, 9 in the sharks, and an 8 in the remoras.

        Great for multiple facets of climbing

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

        I absolutely love these - and I rarely like slippers. Fits like a glove and is simple yet performs incredibly well. Great for toe hooking and cracks - allows you to edge really well. This is definitely a soft shoe though, so when it comes to crack climbing and trad climbing, they can be really, really good for single pitch, but multi pitch my feet start to hurt. However, I am used to a stiffer shoe, and not all people agree with me. Amazing for sport, bouldering, and gym sessions as well. As with most slippers, size down a couple sizes!!! They do stretch a bit and I noticed that they fit my feet perfectly at first, even a little tight, and got a little too loose after wearing them many times and sweating in them. Great deal. Totally worth every penny, and I would recommend them to anyone from kids to adults, male or female.

        Most comfortable shoe EVER!

        Comfort comfort comfort. (pssst. and performance!)

        The Remora has everything I would ever hope for in a slipper: soft, slightly aggressive, comfortable, versatile, and they toe hook remarkably!

        And quite inexpensive! I own 2 pairs so I have a backup when my first pair wears out!

        I wear a 11.5 street shoe and got an 11 in these and it was perfect

        After a lifetime of wearing almost exclusively stiff shoes, the Remoras have converted me into a soft shoe believer. They are the first shoes I take out of the bag for anything that doesn't involve heel hooks or ultra-thin edging–weaknesses of any soft slipper. Some of the stickiest rubber I've ever used, as well. During a two-month trip to Rocklands, I used these shoes somewhere around 90 percent of the time.

        I wear a size 10 Shark 2.0 (same as my street shoes) and 9.5 Redline, and a size 8.5 in the Remoras. They will feel tight at first, but quickly stretch and mold to your foot shape.

        Great comfy shoe

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: Runs large
        • Size Bought: 7.5

        The Remora is probably one of the most comfortable, if not most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. I wear size 9 redline, 8.5 Shark 2.0, and was recommended I wear size 7.5 in the Remora. Skeptical but trusting, I got the tiny size and was amazed when the heel cup stretched back and snapped back once the shoe was on. Definitely stretches, so size a bit small at first! The shoe is a good all around shoe for high millage in the gym or otherwise. Soft rubber, surprisingly good edging, good smearing, and good toe hooks. The shoes main flaw is that my heel often slips out, but hey, it's a slipper.
        Full disclosure: I was provided these shoes for free, but did my best to be objective

        I've been climbing in the Remoras for about 6 months now and they have easily replaced all of my other shoes. They fit my foot like a glove - there is little to no dead space (which is extremely rare for me). I tend to gravitate towards more stiff shoes, but I actually love how soft the Remoras are.
        For reference: I am a 6.5 in the Redlines and a 7 in the Lyra. I ended up going down to a size 5 in the Remora and they've stretched perfectly.

        The only slipper I've ever loved!

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

        This shoe fit like a glove and worked amazingly well on not only slabs but on steep terrain as well. The heel felt snug and secure even while heel hooking and bat hangs. At first I used this shoe as a warm up / gym slipper but it soon performed its way into my regular quiver for projecting and climbing outside. The rubber is super sticky, and the fit was exactly at my regular shoe size. Definitely would recommend this shoe to anyone!
