Shame on you 2. Especially you Curt. As a mod I'd think you'd know better. Maybe someone with some sense can delete your posts for you...

I'm not a mod here, Bill. If you're going to try and scold me, please at least try to understand what is going on around you.

Are we even reading the same thread, Bill? Jim's initial post was not really about the Mad Rock shoes at all--it was merely a re-expression of the continued contempt he has for Joe Garland. I call BS.

And how nice of you to chime in with a post that only digs that hole just a little bit deeper. I don't see any useful information about Mad Rock shoes in your post anywhere, Bill. It's actually pretty funny that you choose to post a personal attack aimed at me as means of criticising personal attack posting. I think that's called the pot calling the kettle black.

I started 3 years ago with a pair of Mad Rock Phoenixes and also picked up a pair of 5.10 Spires around the same (so I could try both, and my buddy would have a pair to borrow when we went craggin. Both shoes have held up pretty well. They're definitely worn from noob abuse, but 3 years later they still have some rubber on them. Don't really use them much anymore. Once in a while someone will bring a noob friend and will squeeze into those shoes though, and they still work. So for all those people saying they fall apart I have no idea what they are talking about.

Hey Medicus,
Wearing a pair of socks should snug up your shoes after they have stretched. That could prevent the proverbial whoopee-cushion-effect from recurring. If said effect was only a cover, you might want to cut down on the super taco's before climbing. Laugh

Back on topic,
I own 4 pairs of 'shoes' that I frequently climb in: Mad Rock Hookers, 5.10 spires, 5.10 teenies and wall boots. I bought the Mad Rock shoes because they were so cheap. They work well enough but I usually climb better in my teenies than the others. I attribute this to balance between comfort and performance.

My advice (for your friend) is, "try any shoe in a semi-comfort fit." It will let you climb longer without wanting to peel them off at every chance. If they stretch out and become too loose, start wearing socks with them.

Cheers,
Dave :)

lol, thanks... it's not a cover up, I wouldn't care if it were a real one, it's just a really annoying sound and feeling. I might try socks, but I've never worn socks when wearing climbing shoes.

Nice picture--and they are Merrells, dammit all. Also, Jim and I better get a decent percentage of the gate, for providing the entertainment value here.

Hey I'll take care of ya and make sure you guys both get a cut off the top Curt. You should consider contacting Merrell directly for an addtional slice of that promotional pie. Pretty good pic there too.

Now get back to tearing him a new asshole will ya cause the moneys already starting to dry up under the rock here damnit.

Haha, BUMP! and was lapping Beacon yesterday with my boy. 2 torn rotator cuffs in play. A search brings up this interplay of a thread, and I think it may have been voted the moment that RC.Com was flushed into the toilet. Is Jiimdavis around or did the pain of getting a new one ripped by Curt cause a meltdown?

It's like you are trying to show each other who has the biggest dick, but I'll surprise you by saying that to everybody reading this - your stupid, pointless, drivel -laden, tit-for-tat arguement, controversy, contention, contestation, disputation or whatever it is: shows that neither of you really have dicks. Or manners.

Good on Joe (Madrock) for showing up and trying to answer the question without being sucked into a stupid, putrid, disgusting, revolting, nauseating and pointless yawing black hole display of ignorance.

akaerik21, there's some wheat in the chaff inbewteen up there thats good info. Getting a good pair of shoes that fit you and make you happy would be #1 on the list. Good luck to the roomate.

Clearly serious people suck. These guys were having a slugfest of Homeric proportions with some world class Zingers tossed in, I should have stayed butted out. Dohhh.

I've been wanting to try an Acopa shoe, mostly to help out Bachar, but haven't had a need for a new shoe, people seem to like them.

Dayum, got several now. My boy was wearing the Acopa jbs yesterday with me. Prefer Evolvs myself:-)

Carry on!
