The Mad Rock Lyra Climbing Shoe for women is a comfortable, easily adjustable, and precise option for climbers who favor comfort and a snug fit. This shoe does not crush very small edges, which is mostly a concern just for elite-level climbers. Some durability issues with the rubber should also be considered, but for those who want a supportive and cushioned option, this is a great choice.
The Mad Rock Lotus Climbing Shoe for women is an aggressive, protective, tight, and adjustable shoe that is suited for advanced climbers, and especially those who enjoy indoor climbing, bouldering, and overhanging or heel-hooking moves.
