    I have had these shoes since the middle of October. I ordered the size I wear in normal everyday shoes (11|44.5) and they felt really tight and took about 2 weeks to break in (I climb 3 times a week). Now it is the end of February and they have two small holes in the front, not large enough to throw away but large enough where I can feel the wall with my big toe. They are great shoes really comfortable once broken in but they didn't even last a year.

    I like these shoes. Too bad STP doensn't have my size. I normally wear a 9.5 (the climbing shoe size I use when I rent at the gym, and my street shoe size) and ordered that; it was WAY too small. I then ordered a 10.5 and still, way too small. Since they don't have any larger options, I'm returning them but I would have liked to own these.

    Nice shoes! Buy 1 size larger than you usually wear - they run small.

    Had to send these back for a set 2 sizes larger than I normally wear.
    Perhaps the sizes are women's sizes instead of men's?
    They seem sticky & flexible. I'm looking forward to using them further.

    I have used these shoes a couple times in the gym and outdoors at a crag with basalt column cracks (Frenchman Coulee). The shoes performed well. The rubber on the top of of the shoes beyond the toes allowed for foot jamming without abrading laces or a leather top.

    The sizing runs small; I wear a street shoe size 10 and the size 10.5 rock shoe fits snugly.

    Look like they are good shoes but could not get them on my feet as they appear to be about 2 sizes off. Ordered size 7.5, appears that it will fit a size 5.5 foot. Star rating might be higher or lower - just judging them as a 3 until they can get used by someone.

    I own several pairs of climbing shoes of different brands (Evolv, La Sportiva, Boreal) and of different types (aggressive, semi-agressive, and all around). This Mugen is my first Mad Rock pair and I'm very happy with it! Unlike La Sportiva, which runs big and narrow, this fits true to size - I wear street 8.5 and wide width. I ordered 8.5 and it fits great. It's comfortable enough to walk around in yet snug for climbing with a good balance of stiffness and flexibility. The sole is sticky. Love the hemp lining ! My feet sweat a lot cuz I'm actually afraid of heights. These shoes help keep my feet drier and hence more odor resistant.

    This is now my 'go-to' pair :)

    Decent mid-level shoe for bouldering and sport climbing. I where a size 12 street shoe and settled on a 12.5. Shoe is tight but not so tight that the discomfort forces me to remove them immediately after a climb.

    Bought based on prior experience with older version of this shoe. The older version worked great for me and was the best value for the $. Hoping to see this version to the same.
    Size: i wear 10.5 street - settled on 9.5 in these, but tight. We'll see how much they would stretch.

    Since so much about the about the actual performance of climbing shoes is subjective, I'm only going to comment about fit. I like my shoes *tight*. I like them so tight that I have to pull them off between indoor routes. My foot is a bit wide, and I wear a size 9 street shoe with an average arch. After some research I bought the 8.5's on a coin toss since I did not have the opportunity to try some on beforehand, but the price was too good to pass up. I was concerned the shoes may not be tight enough for my tastes, but they were as tight as I could stand... perfect. It took about an hour of wear time (lots of on & off) before I could stand in them without pain for any length of time. So, even with the hemp liner and rubber toe, they still stretch a bit. The heel is the only thing I'm worried about. Haven't had a chance to do any heel hooks yet, but it feels like the heel could shift a bit no matter how tight I adjust the straps. Build quality is fantastic and it looks like the uppers will last quite awhile. So, for anyone who doesn't like to grimace as they put their shoes on... buy your street size. They will still be very uncomfortable, but after all... these aren't jogging shoes. ;-)
