Mad Rock A proven performer with a redesigned Mad twist. The Flash Lace is a superb shoe that can tackle face, trad and multi-pitch climbs with equal aplomb. Traditional construction allows for a comfortable, sensitive all-around shoe that features the world's stickiest Mad Rubber. Technical enough for competition climbing, yet comfortable enough for the rest of us.

Paul Craven says,

"I've worn the Flash Lace on several occasions, both indoors and outdoors and on both grit and limestone, I really like the feel of the shoe, especially being able to fine tune the fit by adjusting the lacing. The edging performance is great and with a low toe profile which is good for small pockets. The synthetic lined upper not only gives great comfort, (I've worn them for long periods), but also means minimal stretch so a good fit throughout the life of the shoe"

Stewart Watson says,

“This shoe is peculiar: you see climbers throughout the spectrum wearing them. The shoe has a fantastic edge, which is why I think that many top-level climbers use them. However, the shoe is also incredibly comfortable, which is why climbers of all abilities use them. I personally have climbed many routes with this shoe including an Fr8c. I have also competed in many climbing competitions with this shoe."

The Mad Rock Flash Lace Up Climbing Shoe is currently on test by the Gear Review Team member, Kevin Avery. Look out for Kevin's review soon.
