Design is not well thought-out.

For a beginner's shoe, i have to say that this product rank low among beginner shoe of other brands. The rubber is not as sticky as other brands and it gets worn out easily. The shoelaces are also not very durable as mine snapped after about a few months and i had to change to regular shoe laces. Anatomically, i understand why the shoe has a simple, basic built. However, i feel that there are some factors that can be improved. As a climber who was once a beginner, i feel that this shoe does not give the climber the right equipment and potential to grow. I feel that there should be rubber on the top of the toes so that new climbers can train toe hooks. Also, i feel that the heel section of the shoe should be more reinforced and have a more stable and firm design so that new climbers can practice the proper heel-hooking form. The toe and the heel are very important aspects for climbers to work on so that they can be more efficient on the wall by being able to utilise more of their feet rather than their upper body, which is a foundational skill a climber has to learn. On a side note, i think i speak for a number of people when i say that the design a too basic and not very appealing to climbers. To be honest, the shoe looks more like a school shoe. The colour scheme is too dull which may cause potential buyers to view the shoe as more of a low-class, budget and cheap shoe. The cheapest and basic Madrock shoe that i've found costs around $60 and honestly, through feedback from my climbing buddies, the shoes are known to be more long-lasting and technical.

Good value beginner's shoe!

Good value beginner's shoe! Great for somone exploring indoor climbing like me and not wanting to shell out on a high-end pair of shoes. They fit true to size, narrow toe like any climbing shoe, can be worn sockless (as I do) quite comfortably as many climbers like to do. Great grip, good price.

Best beginners

Thick rubber, not aggressive saved me a fortune!


Compared to a simple trainers it is a big jump. Ha..Ha... You could climb comfortably in it. I recommend it for first shoe. Used in III. IV. V VI routes. It performs very well. Recommend! :D

Half sizes would be ideal

Ideally these would be available in half sizes, because of how narrow they are i had to size up to 11s which then meant they were large around the ankles and causing blisters on the Achilles area after 10 minutes of use.

Perfect fit!

Little space for the toes so it’s not too uncomfortable as other shoes can be too small and cause problems. Perfect fit so far, but still breaking them in

fine for a beginner

I am a beginner climber and I've only climbed indoors so far. These shoes are pretty inexpensive but do look a bit basic in their construction with some visible glue. I wear a 40 in shoes and I have wide toes so went for a 41, which seems a pretty good fit. The laces allow some adjustment. They gape a bit around my ankles, which looks a bit unsightly but doesn't affect the fit.

Simond rock climbing shoes forfbeginner

These are good shoes for a beginner, it does give you some confidence to take on little challenges for a first timer who is inclined doing little adventure in life. Personally I found it on an expensive side as there was decent amount of wear of the rubber over just 4 to 5 days of climbing and secondly I being an occasional climber.

Great for beginners

I have used them for over two months now. They are great for exploring climbing indoors as well as outdoors.

Great first life..still good value

My first year in climbing, shoes lasted one year and two weeks, used twice per week on the indoor wall, and ten times outdoors. Now completely worn out, or at least the sole has started to come away from the shoe at the toe, where all the stress goes.For the money, I am happy with that life. Nobody wants to pay four times as much in case the sport is not for them. Rubber and grip is good, fit is good, laces work well.

adult rock climbing shoes for beginners

This shoe is perfect for those who are first timers and want-to-explore wall climbers. I've used it twice since i bought it and I can say i made a right choice.

Worn once

Worn once. 2nd time as a beginner on an indoor wall. Right shoe pinched a little but I think they need a little bit more wear yet. Very happy with product so far.

Additional Product Information


Outer sole of

  • 100% Rubber - Synthetic

Upper of

  • 100% Cotton

Lining and sock of

  • 100% Cotton

Shoe shape

Straight climbing shoe with flat profile; conforms to the foot's natural shape for added comfort

Sizing recommendations

We recommend you choose the same size as your normal size (or 1 size above if you want even more comfort). They should feel tight without hurting. If you are a beginner or starting to improve your skills, it's important they not be too tight (that they don't hurt) so that your food can develop mobility, strength, and proprioception

Care instructions

Our first tip is to never machine wash your shoes. Thermal and mechanical pressure could damage them. We recommend that you wash them by hand, either with a sponge soaked in clean water or with a sponge soaked in soapy water (Marseille soap), being sure to air-dry them at a stable temperate and avoid drying them on a radiator or in full sunlight. We recommend washing them regularly to increase the life span of the shoes.



Storage instructions

Avoid heat (cars in summer, proximity to a heat source) and humidity. Choose a cool, dry place.

Care instructions

warm the outsole by rubbing with your hand before climbing (making rubber instantly sticky to avoiding wearing in first minutes of use due to outsole slipping on the rock during cold weather); clean the rubber after climbing (before it cools so dust doesn't stick).
