Not many people are strictly single-discipline climbers; it's more fun to switch between sport, trad, bouldering, and gym climbing, which means you either need a quiver of shoes or a pair that can handle everything you throw at it, like the Mad Rock Lyra Women's Climbing Shoe. With a moderately asymmetrical shape, a shape-retaining Tek Flex synthetic upper, and relatively flat sole, the Lyra can move from bolt-clipping to pebble-wrestling to gear-plugging to plastic-pulling without sacrificing performance or comfort. The Arch Flex polycarbonate midsole and dual hook-and-loop straps provide a supportive, glove-like fit, while the 3. 8mm Science Friction 3. 0 rubber sticks to slabs, jibs, and dishes with equal aplomb. For the boulderers and serious sport climbers out there, the Lyra features a 3D-molded Torque heel, which has a super-snug fit and has been outfitted with textured X5 rubber for maximum grip, hold, and sensitivity when you're heel hooking your way up your newest problem. There's a rubber patch on top of the toe, too, to assist with toe hooks, and a slightly elastic R2 rand that hugs your foot without squeezing it to death.


The Lyra is the best choice for doing it all with just one shoe. With a slightly concave sole and rubber on the toe for toe-hooking, a precise fit and feel make the Lyra model a great choice for an all-around performance shoe. The Lyra can tackle anything from boulders, to El Cap free routes. Features: - Recommended uses: Bouldering, Sport, Gym, Competition, Crack Climbing - Center midsole stiffness: Medium-soft - Edge midsole stiffness: Medium - Glove-like fit

Mad Rock Women's Lyra Climbing Shoe FEATURES of the Mad Rock Women's Lyra Climbing Shoe A climbing shoe that can do it all thanks to the design and fit The sole is slightly concave and there is rubber on the toe for toe-hooking Has a precise fit and feel. I'm not sure what that even means, but I'm going to just go with it. My brother says these are really great for bouldering, crack climbing, and any gym or sport or competition thing. I think that's what he said anyway. The workbook says these can tackle anything from bouldrs to free routes. I would love to see them tackle a bear, though. I hope that helps.
