I have to admit that at first I thought this show might be a decent (at best) trad shoe. you know it has a stiff toe box, i kept hearing good things about the rubber, so i figured why not...Boy howdy was i wrong. I can not get these shoes to stick to anything. especially sandstone! there is no precision to the shoe, and the back of the heel tends to cut into my heel and it hurts! and within the first month of climbing in them the rubber is already starting to go! I am curious if it is just the pheniox or if mad rock acctually has good shoes on the market?
