Mad Rock Shark
Use: mostly indoor gym climbing and occasional bouldering day trips
Price Paid: $45
A very good shoe for an entry level climber providing good toe and heel hooks and decent edging and smearing capabilities. I wear a street 8 and bought these in 8 too as it was my first pair and did not want a painful break in period; did stretch about a half size and powerful heels hooks are difficult now...not very aggressive for climbs of upper grades...the rubber wore off the toe after 8 months of climbing 2-3 days a week (could be due to inept footwork of a beginner like myself)...DEFINITELY RECOMMEND IT FOR A BEGINNER...

The Mad Rock Shark Climbing Shoe is back, and this reincarnation is a more effective killing machine than ever before. The concave shape of the AES midsole provides a high level of sensitivity without compromising edging performance, making the Shark an ideal choice for competition climbers, hard sport routes, and elite-level bouldering. Plus, the Arch Flex system gives you a powerful glove-like fit without the pain typically experienced in a high-performance shoe.
The Mad Rock Shark Climbing Shoe is an agressive shoe that makes any boulder problem grades lower..
