Mad Rock Haywire Climbing Shoe
The Haywire is the softest shoe that Mad Rock has ever made. It is designed for steep climbing and indoor training sessions. The upper of the Haywire is made from Mad Rock's new FloKnit technology which is combined with the one piece toe box, this provides you with a very comfortable and sensitive shoe that gives you lots of power through the toes for those steep boulder problems, and overhanging sport routes. The Haywire will not lose its downturned shape over time thanks to the way it has been constructed, it has one velcro strap to secure your foot in the shoe, which lets you put lots of power through strenuous heel hooks without worrying about your foot slipping out of the shoe.

Out of the box the shoe feels plastic, this is just for 2 hours. This is my first shoe in trusting volumes for 1000%. No even my 5.10 team blacks felt that good. Great shoe does it all.
The only thing what’s not working 100% for me is the hard toopad on top. Love it softer but bought my 2e pare. Its works for 98% ;)
I bought these out of curiosity (molded technology and the sock business) and expected them to be a back up to my Dragos. Little did I think they would become my new favorite shoe. I LOVE them. They are extra responsive, extra comfortable AND they perform like an aggressive shoe despite how soft and flexible they are. They have been great indoors and outdoors for me.
I only have ONE complaint: the split in the rubber on the toe box comes to point in a horrible spot. It leaves a bit indent on my big toe and it is quite painful (especially if you accidentally nail your toe into the wall). I have a fairly normal sized foot, so space is not an issue. It is simply that dang slit! I wish it stopped a few millimeters earlier. Other than that, they are AWESOME. Performs like a $200 shoe but only costs $120 :D
