Product Overview

This beginner climbing footwear presents a science friction 3.0 rubber sole that offers superior friction and grip on slippery terrains. The Mad Rock Men’s Drifter Climbing Shoe is also versatile, with an all-round performance that provides the utmost stability and functionality in tough climbing conditions. The slightly asymmetric last and flat profile gives additional comfort while facilitating better grasp on uneven surfaces. A great climbing shoe for beginner climbers, the premium full grain leather upper of the Mad Rock Men’s Drifter stretches out after extend periods of use, making it fit snug for improved feel and convenience.

You don’t want to spend minutes lacing up your footwear, and the split neoprene tongue is perfect for seamlessly putting them on or off. While some climbing shoes are only remarkable for indoor use, the 3D molded heel and sticky rubber with cushy EVA make for easy fit. You need to keep your midsoles in shape for long-term use. And this is ensured with the 1.8mm polyester midsole.

When walls and holds are curvy, you need an equally asymmetrical footwear for improved convenience and safety. Thanks to its asymmetrical curvature, the Mad Rock Men’s Drifter Climbing Shoe has all you need for tricky trails and challenging points you are likely to face when climbing outdoors. There are three colours to choose if you decide to go with the Mad Rock Men’s Drifter; red, azul and grey.

Climbing shoes should snug well but also provide a fit that doesn’t drag you as you move upwards. With an average size of 223g (size 9), the footwear will likely not be a problem for an all-day use.  Size and fit are consistent problems to figure out when buying a climbing shoe, and the Mad Rock Men’s Drifter is no exception as some users complain that it runs too small; wide feet users haven’t found it helpful for their mountaineering adventure too. So you want to look up on size charts before choosing the right fit. Or better still, buy from offline retailers for better assessment of the fit and size before checking out. Some buyers recommend buying 1 size larger than your street footwear so that could help if purchasing online makes for more convenience.  If you do manage to get the right size, the Mad Rock Men’s Drifter Climbing Shoe can be your best purchase when cashing in on a beginner climbing shoe.
