    Great Time Sending

    These shoes are amazing, I've used plenty of shoes from Scarpa, Five Ten and La Sportiva but these are by far one of my favourites. Super sticky from the get go. The only issue I've found is that it is quite narrow and I have quite wide feet so it has made the breaking in period really tough.

    For sizing in my Dragos I have 41EU and for the Drones I got 40EU. Which is quite a tight fit.

    When it's on, it's on!

    I really enjoy climbing in this shoe for the stability it gives while still being fairly sensitive. I found the size recommendations form Mad Rock to be slightly too small, which may be due to my wide front-foot. The relatively rigid "pocket" works like a slipper, which gives a good feel once it is on the foot but makes it hard to take on and off, which can get a bit tiresome when they are new. Over all a good buy!

    Perfect fitting shoe

    I have a wide foot from growing up bare foot. Always had to go one size higher. With this high volume model it literally fits like a glove at my foot size. Only a four star because the rubber although really grippy because its soft seems to wear. Perfect shoe to last one year of hard climbing.

    Great all rounder

    I purchased these climbing shoes after a lot of searching around for the right one,

    Sizing is quite accurate in terms of matching your street shoe size,

    These are a great price and awesome for most climbing styles, not the best for smearing,

    I purchased theses for bouldering purposes, great heel hook, toe hook, fits like a glove after three good sessions.

    A lot softer than I had anticipated but still a great comfortable climbing shoe.
