Here's what other sites are saying:

The Mad Rock Con-Flict Climbing Shoe comes with a three-strap hook-and-loop closure to look your foot in place and help you take advantage of the super sticky Science Friction 2. 2 rubber. Mad Rock put a little though into the steep stuff as well and gave this shoe and over-wrapped toe area so the sole's friction can help you send even when you're desperately toe-hooking your way out a roof.
