See the climbing world from the top when you put on the hemp-lined Mad Rock Mugen Tech Climbing Shoe. The leather upper and organic hemp lining keep your foot cool, comfortable, and fresh throughout a hot day of climbing. Hook-and-loop closures and dual pull tabs provide quick transitions in and out of climb-mode. Smear the medium flex midsole and sticky Science Friction rubber sole on the wall when all the footholds are out of reach, and hook the molded heel cup or toe rand around jugs to get through super-techy problems.

Great for indoor! 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: Slug11, 2011-02-12

Been gym climbing in these for two months. No smell regardless of how sweaty they get. great for poking my toes into small cracks or chips. Solid thick heel allows comfortable heel hooking. 1st pair of shoes I have owned and they are great. Street I am 11.5 and my techs are 11.0 I have long narrow foot and the size still allows me to have these shoes very tight with curled toes.

SINGLE WORST 1 out of 5 stars

Review by: jason, 2010-10-06

The SINGLE WORST shoe out of 20+ shoes that I've tried.
1. The toe rubber permanently distorted on hard slab and dime edges.
2. The toothed heel design started loosing chunks of rubber after less than 2 months.
3. I have narrow feet by mens standards and even these were too narrow for me.

Great shoes but.. 4 out of 5 stars

Got it last week, its nice looking and nice to climb.But my leg is a bit wide which is very pain when i wear the shoes becoz the front of the shoes is narrow. Does anyone have any ideas on how to expand it without damaging the shoe?

Is everyone else using the same shoe. They are not like last years "new mugen". The new toe wrap really sucks, the toe box has a completely different shape now and puts power to the small toes, not the big toe. The body stretches because it is a lined leather, also doesn't smell at all, toe rubber though, does move and isn't balanced with how the shoe stretches. I would rather have more rubber over the big toe (like pontas) and then freedom for other toes. This just seems more natural for my foot, power to the big toe.

While I really like the dual thickness rubber for steep the con-flicts (which I love)...these just never feel right when smearing and have little sensitivity on edges. Sticky, yes very, but there needs to be a balance of stickyness vs edging power. To make a rubber sticky on rock it has to conform to the surface textures, if you could get sticky and a strong edge I would love it, but these are not it...there is a reason people still like Stealth C4.

Mad rock went from having a stiff edge to a super soft edge, I would a have liked some middle ground for the Muguens...that said I really like the sticky on my con-flicts, i think they are a better shoe.

Keep in mind like everything else, fit is super important a different shaped foot might enjoy these more then I.

Mugen Tech 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: climbervic, 2009-06-21

I got this shoe a size too large to have something to train in in the gym, and it took some getting used to. But I went to Indian Creek and gave these shoes a whirl on some easier cracks, best shoe for foot camming I have ever worn. The thick straps are shoskingly helpfulfor people with small feet in wide cracks. I love it.
