I ordered them, I received them, I sent them back. They were hideously SMALL. I am awaiting a new pair of Hookers any day now...

I'm looking for a "Mythos-like" shoe for cracks, not lined with a midsole, what do you suggest for MadRock?

Are they avalable in Canada?(ship via dog sled)
Do they have a shoe that would climb crack well and face/slab well?

tthey do, go to their website madrockshoes.com and if the descriptions don't answer you they answer emails readily. i just got my flashes today and they fit great and when i walk w/them on my kitchen floor it feels/sounds like it does when you walk on a sticky floor. i just cleaned that floor, i will love these shoes!

I tried on the 8.5 hooker lace, too small. Returned and got a full size larger, 9.5. It was same fit! The 9.5 felt exactly like the 8.5. WTF!!!

  my mugens arrived today
i am really excited
really i am
they are just soooooo tight!

ok, i'll admit these are the first shoes i've owned... and I haven't climbed in them but for a couple of minutes on my way back to work from lunch.
I wear a 10.5 in all of my running shoes. I tried on Spires at 44 and LS Focus at 43 and they were newbie tight/comfortable. I ordered size 10s in the mugens with the salesperson suggesting i go 9.5. The 10s scrunched my toes numbingly hard and they are way narrow... and i have the narrowest foot to start with. I think with a little stretch/give i can acclimate to them, maybe.
"They're supposed to be tight!?!"

ok, that's my scoop on sizing.
performance review to follow

Last night I climbed in a pair of hookers and a pair of Flashs. The hookers seemed to form well to my feet and were pretty comfortable. The sole was interesting but I couldn't really see any benefits to the design. I was only climbing in the gym though. I think for the money, the shoe is pretty good. The Flash, I really didn't like them at all. They were waaaaaay to rigid. I would not want to climb in them outside. Nothing seems to beat my 5.10 mocs. That's just my personal opinion though.

I got a pair of the Hooker lace-ups about a month ago, and I really like them. A lot. They hurt quite a bit to break in, but they stretch a LOT (I sized down 1-1.5 from street shoe and they're almost too big). I like how they fit my foot, which doesn't fit well at all into the Anasazi last that 5.10 uses. Great grip - in the gym, they stand solidly on holds that I wouldn't even look at before. Edging is fine. I've been spoiled as far as edging goes by my old Rock Socks, but these can keep up to them well enough. Slingshot heel hurts for a while, but that loosens up too. Umm.. what else could I say.. Other than a couple initial fit problems (slingshot heel, tongue stitching) that go away when the shoes wear in, I can't find a problem with these shoes yet. The only beef - more of an inconvenience, really - is that the lace is pretty short and so I can't really open the shoes up to put them on (I tie knots in the ends of the laces so they don't pull out). Inconsequential, really.
Anything I left out, just let me know.
