Review by DannyDanDaniel on Oct. 27, 2007
These are overall great shoes for the price. They edge and smear very well, and are considerably sticky. Very comfortable as well.
The Rubber doesn't last very long. They lasted about 4 months, climbing about 4-5 days a week, before I finally blew a hole in the toe.

Good all around shoes - gym and outside. Affordable price range.
Velcro goes both ways, most people either love it or hate it; few in between.

The leather-like material (colored part) is starting to wear down from repeated ruffles with rock.
Velcro or laces?

ultra sticky rubber, great fit, darn good price
I wasn't as dissatisfied with the rubber because to me it seemed to last just as long as rubber on other brands of shoes I've used.

Heel Cup, Great for Bouldering and Sport Climbing
Mediocure for edging and Trad Climbing
Ive climbed in all-brands of shoes in my years, and I figured Id finally give MadRock a try. I chose the Flash because of their easy velcro closure, and not overly-aggressive rand, Im glad I did. They fit really well and True to street shoe size (9.5). Its also nice that theyre unlined (definitely keeps odors down), and the padded overlapping toungue is really comfortable so you can really pull the velcro down snug.

The rubber is great. Its a little softer than what Im used to, so Id stay away from climbing trad and edging, but I found it to be really great for higher friction climbs. Great shoes for bouldering and sport. It worked perfectly on sandstone, and gritty conglomerate rock. The heel-cup is really the best part. I believe last Time I was out, a bystanding climber accused me of having the cheater heel because it works so well. (Turn that foot outit works everytime!) So anyway, for $75, you really cant beat the price and performance. Way to go MadRock!
