    Remora Climbing Shoe

    The Remora Climbing Shoe is Mad Rock's do-it-all slipper for climbers who can't have separate shoes for boulders, sport routes, and gyms. With a moderately stiff, slightly downturned design, the Remora performs on any climb at steep to vertical angles. Science Friction rubber edges on jibs with ease, and it encapsulates the forefoot for toe-hooking prowess. The SynFlex upper conforms to your foot without much stretch.

    • A do-it-all slipper for boulders, sport routes, and gym climbs
    • Slight downturn performs on vertical to steep climbs
    • Science Friction rubber edges on minuscule jibs with ease
    • SynFlex upper with rubberized forefoot minimizes stretch

    bad shoe and cust. service

      Bought these shoes and the rubber started to peel off at the toe after a couple routes. Back country said i could return them for a "store credit". That would have left me with no shoes to climb with for a couple weeks as i had already sent my old shoes to the resole shop. I emailed Mad rock also but they are not responding to my email. I would recommend that if you purchase these you get them at a store that will send another pair to you so you can at least be climbing in the broken ones until the new pair arrives.

      Best gym shoe for the money

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Bought these shoes primarily for gym climbing where I know I'll leave a pair on for extended periods of time. I have climbed up to v7 in these with no issues as long as the route doesn't contain any nasty heel hooks. Super comfortable, solid toe-hooking, edges alright for what I consider to be a very soft shoe, and smears great. The rubber and overall construction don't compare to a higher end aggressive shoe (my pair is starting to peel a bit up by the toes in certain areas), and I would give the overall performance a 3.75/5, but for under a hundred bucks they punch wayyyy above their weight class. Beginner shoes never climb this good.

      I recommend going a half to full-size down for a performance fit. I bought mine in a 9.5, they were tight for 2 days but have since stretched to a very comfortable fit for my foot (high volume, wide toebox, narrow heel).

      Street shoe: 10.5
      Butora Acro Wide: 10.5 (best toebox, loose heel)
      Sportiva Miura VS: 42.5 (fits about perfectly everywhere after a bit of stretch)
      Sportiva Solution: 42 (tight in the toebox but worth it for performance)
      MR Remora: 9.5 (stretched to become super comfortable but starting to get a bit baggy in the heel)

      downsized a bit more than most reviews..

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I wear size 9 in Hoka running shoes. I downsized to 7.5 in these. I've put it through the wringer and I couldn't be happier. Comfy enough for single pitch trad routes. Aggressive enough for most boulders I try. Will I ever own another shoe? Not likely.

      Solid everyday shoe

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Shoe size bought: 12
      Street shoe size:12.5

      The remora has been a pretty good everyday gym shoe. It’s comfortable and has not stretched out much at all. The toe rubber is phenomenal and heel hooking is alright. In overall these shoes are great for their price point. That being said they run very wide and if I buy them again I would go down a half size to a 11.5 in the hope of it being narrower.

      Favorite gym/crag shoe

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Slightly worried this good review may in some part contribute to MR raising the price, but oh well. It's a great all around gym / crag shoe, and hard to beat for the price, especially if you can get it on sale. I wear it a little smaller than my other shoes, and suffer the pain while I wait for it to stretch out. However, these stretch out less than the 5-10 moccasins.

      I will always own a pair of these

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These shoes are such a sleeper, especially if you get them on sale. They're the perfect moc so it's a no brainer. I mostly use these as my everyday gym shoe and the toe rubber makes them a great indoor bouldering shoe. Because the rubber is soft, I can work on strengthening my feet for outdoor climbs. I have climbed in them outside as well and they work well for anything that doesn't require super tiny feet.

      I have to admit the first 10 ish minutes I have them on they are slightly uncomfortable until the rubber warms up and molds to my toebox. That being said I have a wider forefoot and tiny heels and these fit great. I wear a EU 38 and got the corresponding size 6. This was the perfect size for me where my toes are slightly curled, but still comfortable. Depending on my goals, I could easily size up or down a half size for performance or comfort.

      Seriously this is such a wonderful catch all shoe and if you get them on sale they're dirt cheap. Mad rock really killed it with the Remora and I would recommend them to anyone.

      Solid shoe. Size comparison below.

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I personally prefer to climb with super thin socks. That makes it a little challenging to slip on the Remoras, but is definitely manageable. They feel very precise so far and are going to be perfect if they stretch a tiny bit.

      The toe box is a little taller than, for example, LaSportiva Katanas. Expect to have curled toes to fill that volume. They do not feel uncomfortable, though. I suspect, however, that it's not going to be the best shoe for toe jams (unless the rubber on the top is acting as some toe protector). Compared to Evolv Addicts, the forefoot is definitely wider and more comfortable.

      For comparison, I usually climb in size EUR 40 LaSportiva Katanas (velcro) or EUR 41 TC pros. My LaSportiva approach shoe size is EUR43.

      Still breaking them in but they rock

        See what I did there? They rock? lolz. Great fit and they are somewhat comfy out of the box! ha! and the easy on and off is the best part. Great gym shoes.

        Solid gym shoe

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This is a great shoe for the price. I've only ever worn these shoes at the gym. I sized down a full size from my street shoe but I think it might have been a bit too much, I think half a size would have been good enough. As it is now, its been a painful break in relative to my first set of shoes a pair of La Sportiva Nagos. Compared to the Nagos these have a much more aggressive downturn and feel a bit more sticky on the wall.

        Good beginner shoe

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        For the price it is a great beginner shoe. I read that it runs large so I ordered a size down but ended up returning it for a larger size. They were pretty tight to begin with but have broken in nicely. I haven't taken them outside yet but they have great grip in the gym.

        Decent shoe

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Got this shoe for cracks at the gym because they hurt so much more than the cracks outside. I think I should have gone a half size bigger. Hoping it breaks in a little more. I usually wear 9.5 street shoe and got the same for this shoe. The hand and baggy hands sizes feel ok in these shoes. Still pretty painful on perfect hands and smaller.

        Astoundingly Good for Everything

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Gym. Sport. Bouldering. Trad. Slab. Vertical. Overhanging. The Remora does it all. Easy to slip on and off. Extra rubber on the toe for toe hooking and, I imagine, great for crack climbing. The friction of the rubber is not the best I've experienced on slab, but, for the versatility of this shoe and its price, I don't know if you can beat it in the slipper category. I wear this shoe every day in the gym. The heel slips a lot with the fit that I chose (gym training fit, in between comfort and performance), but that is inevitable with a slipper. Comfortable enough to wear for an entire gym session. I can't wait to try these for crack climbing.

        Street Shoe: size 10.5/11

        Remora: size 10.5 (I'd say it's true to your street shoe size if you're looking for a balance between comfort and performance, once broken in, of course. So size either your street shoe size or 1/2 size down. I will probably buy a size 10 pair of these for more performance)

        Shark: size 11.5
        Five Ten Anasazi Lace-ups: size 11 (use for multi pitch, so definitely a comfort fit)
        La Sportiva Solutions: 42.5

        Hey Josh! Thanks for the review! the sizing descriptions are especially helpful. Happy to hear you love it :)

        Keep quiet about these

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        For the price, nothing compares. It's short money for the type of shoe you can get. I've previously had a pair of Evolv Addicts that are garbage compared to the Remoras.

        I've primarily spent the most time with these shoes at the gym in the sport and bouldering area. These shoes have been the best shoes I've been able to find for crack climbing. But I've also used these for some trad routes and slab routes and they've performed great. They've become my do everything shoes.

        Plus the easy on/easy off makes these my go-to shoe at the gym.

        To give you an idea of my foot shape, I'd got a slightly wider forefoot and a narrower heel. That is part of why I needed to size up. Most other folks are sizing down about 1/2 to 1 size.

        Street Shoe: size 10

        Mad Rock Remoras - 10.5 (comfortable amount of toe curl)
        Mad Rock Sharks - 10.5 (a big uncomfortable after having on for 5 mins)
        TC Pros - 42.5
        Katana's- 42.5
        Scarpa Origin - 42.5

        Just ordered my third pair

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        In terms of comfort to performance ratio, I have never tried on a better shoe. So glad the Madrock rep pointed these out to me when they were first released a couple of years ago. They fit like a sock, and are incredibly versatile. You would be hard pressed to find a better sport climbing shoe in my opinion. The flexible material seems to suck onto any foot shape and maintaine a suction-cup like feel on your heel. (I have never experienced the loose heel feeling with this shoe that I have had with other mocasins) My wife, and my brother are also now wearing this shoe and love it equally. Climbing on this shoe 2-3 times a week, they last me about 14 months before the rubber on the toe wears through (just FYI).. I wear a size 12.5 street shoe, and an 11.5 in the Remoras for a good/snug fit. Great value, unmatched comfort, super versatile, sensitive, and just all around great shoe! So glad I found my perfect rock shoe and I hope Madrock never stops making them!!!

        Just ordered my third pair

        Best mocs

          I know, I know... they’re Mad Rock. But this is the best moc I’ve ever used. Took them On a trip to Smith rock last summer and they performed really well. They are great when you need to smear and stay stuck to the walls in the chimneys; when you have anything over a quarter inch edge to smear on, and when you just want to shoe that’s gonna stick to stuff and you’re not getting anything super sloppy with micro edges. Plus, they’re mad comfy. Like, no break in time. It’s like a sock, but with rubber on the bottom. There’s not a whole lot of rubber on the shoe, sustaining on your toes on edgy stuff gets a little painful after a while. That being said, I will buy another pair of these shoes.

          Best mocs

          Good Shoe

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          The soft rubber and slight downturn makes this shoe great for slabs and gym climbing, my only disappointment was the sloppy heel. This is a great shoe to add to your arsenal, but not the best all-around shoe. I wear a size 9 street shoe and went down a full size to an 8, which is perfect.

          Good Shoe

          Nice for the gym

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
          • Fit: True to size

          Shoe has great sticky rubber and and the slip on makes it great for the gym, highly recommend.


            Please do not change this shoe, or it's price. I honestly am not sure if Mad Rock realizes the quality to price ratio they have on this shoe but F***. It does it all, I think, I cannot attest to more than 65 degrees, but don't doubt its performance there either. I have a good job, enough money to buy multiple high end shoes, but wouldn't unless I was pro and getting money to wear them in which case it's a moot point (cuz dat be free). Anyways, these shoes are the best overall shoes I have worn in a long history of climbing shoes. Cracks, check, slabs, check, overhangs, check,indoor, f*** yes. I sized down a full size from redlines and half size from sharks. Redline 11 shark 10.5 remora 10. I can wear them for 2 hrs straight and still get the performance I need. If you can only afford one pair of shoes get these, if you can afford multiple get these. Nuf said.

            Add this to your arsenal!

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times
            • Fit: Runs large
            • Size Bought: 7

            The Mad Rock Remora is a very comfortable shoe. It has a good toe for smearing and slab climbing. The heel is comfortable and solid. I prefer this shoe for less steep routes when smearing in mandatory. Although I've worn the Remora on all types of routes and it always performs adequately. The shoe runs a little large I recommend sizing down a full size. All in all it’s a great all around shoe that is easy to get on and off. I strongly recommend adding this shoe to your arsenal.

            Soft and Sticky

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times
            • Fit: True to size

            Ever since the mocs got bumped up to $125 I've been searching for a new slipper. I was initially skeptical after a review in California Climber called these "great for narrow feet". I have fat feet and I was worried these would be another evolv addict or la sportiva cobra. Nope, not even close. These are wide and soft. The rubber is great and the slight down-turned big toe gives just enough purchase for little overhanging pockets. The rubber is SOFT, like broken in moc soft. Not at all the planks that the addicts are. I would hate to try and edge and stand on sharp features all day, but for most everything else , these are great.

            I went a half size down from my street shoe. This should be good for all day comfort and crack. Full size probably would have been good, if I was bouldering and doing steep stuff only.

            The rubber is awesome, I feel super confident on nubs and smedges. The rubber on the heel is pretty thin, my ankle was getting pretty sore after a few sharp heel hooks.

            Not sure how long the rubber will last, will do a follow-up review once I get there.
