User Review: Mad Rock Demon
Price Paid: $100
i love shoes that are soft and not down turned at all. then this version of the demon comes out and destroys my world! at first glance i was already forming opinions about it. "another aggressive shoe that will just sit in my bag and only be used 1 or 2 times and then put back in the bag till the next climbing trip."
when i slid them on and i heard the suction cup sound when my heel slid into place.. in my head all i hear is "crap, i'm going to like them"
first off the rubber is slightly softer then the first version of the demon. the power upper combined with the sole of the shoe forces your toes in optimal position. no more are the days of your toes curling up into a little ball at the front of your foot causing agonizing pain when you step on small or large feet.
the velcro straps keep your foot firmly in place and your foot doesn't shift around.
the heel its pretty nice. it may be different for you but when my heel locked in place it didn't move at all. so far the heel hasn't begun to peel off my foot while climbing in pulling myself in with heel hooks.
