Fit is everything!
Top performance meets comfort! The Drone is constructed on a completely new last design. This flagship shoe takes us to a new level in high performance. The combination of more pointed toe and the down-turned concave shape allows for extremely precise and more powerful edging, making the shoe perfect for ‘grabbing’ holds in slightly steep to steep overhangs. You'll also appreciate the new expandable 3D moulded heel design, soft and supple for fitting into slots and smearing whilst incorporating a nice edge grab which all combines to fit most heel shapes and sizes. The Drone uses high performance stretchy materials, you'll be hard pressed to find such a high performer that feels this good, a super firm fit with comfort.

Mad Rock Drone HV21 May 2019Bought this shoe based on very good size guidance by Sam. Very snug fit out of the box. Thought maybe too snug. Wore them around on the crash pads and after a few minutes they were feeling really comfortable. Tried a few boulder problems and was really impressed with how they felt and how they performed. Climbed for a solid 2 hours and was amazed by how good they felt for the whole session. Great shoe.
