Don't let this shoe's looks fool you. Having climbed grades up to V15, the Drifter proves an astonishingly great value. By steering clear of some of Mad Rock's more technical features, this wallet friendly classic puts competition on it's wake.
Great starter shoe
I recently got addicted to rock climbing, and these shoes have really delivered. The sole is sturdy for those small footholds and quite comfortable throughout a 2-4 hour session. Only complaint I have is that my left, big toe is always feeling tons of pain (although, that could be the need for me to go up a half size, otherwise my left foot is just weird). Regardless, I’ve been bouldering at a local gym for a few months, and these continue to be awesome. I’d buy them again.
I followed the reviews, people saying order 1 size …
I followed the reviews, people saying order 1 size up. DON’T. For Rock Climbing shoes, your toes are supposed to be jammed, so they have to fit tight, prevents injuries. You’re jamming your foot into crack and supporting your weight on it. Try doing that wit your toes and you won’t be rock climbing for a while.
Totally different size than street size
This was my first purchased of rock climbing shoes, however, shoes were kinda tight!!!!!!!
These are a great entry level shoe
These are a great entry level shoe. The size runs just a little small but that is how climbing shoes are supposed to fit. If you can comfortably walk around for hours in them then something is wrong. These feel like they have a durable build, have nice big finger loops at the heel, and the 2-strap Velcro let’s you easily take them off after a climb
Not a bad starter
I just got into rock climbing and I think they will be a good starter shoe, but I don’t really know what I’m talking about. I would like to note that I wear a 10.5 in most shoes, I returned a couple different sizes of climbing shoes before I got these which are 2 full sizes larger than my normal walking/exercise shoe. A 12.5 fits me really well. May be a little small, but my inexperience prevents me from making a better review of the size… Just know that if you should probably size up x2 if you decide to pull the trigger on these. Overall a good product.
Excellent Shoe for Beginners
This shoe has fit rather well. I have experienced some minor stretching, but only in that the shoe fits better than it did before. It does harbor the terrible odor of climbing feet, but it cleans pretty easily, but you might want some shoe spray if you have characteristically smelly feet (like I do).
Rubber composition issue?
I bought these for my boyfriend. They have to be tight, but there was an odd hardened section of rubber over the toes of one of the shoes that made them impossible for him to use. Fortunately, our son, who wears a 13, is able to use them with socks to cushion this.
Great fitting beginner shoes
After reading many reviews on different shoes I decided to give these a shot. The price is low and the rating was pretty high. As other reviews recommended I ordered a size larger than I normal wear(in a men’s size), and they fit perfect! After many trips to the gym I am still happy with the fit and how well they grip the wall. These are a great and inexpensive way to go if you are just getting into climbing.
Its a really nice shoe, I orderer a half size bigger than my feet and I had to returned it cause it was too small, I ordered a half size bigger but still wasn’t fitting. I have to used without sock otherwise It wont fit. Make sure that you buy it at least 1 size bigger than yous!. Other than that I really liked it
Excellent for everything I’ve done so far
A half size above my street shoes are perfect, as others have said. I like the velcro a lot more than I think I would’ve liked ties. The shoes break in well about 3rd or 4th time climbing, and so far seem to only get better.
