Not many people are strictly single discipline climbers it's more fun to switch between sport, trad, bouldering, and gym climbing, which means you either need a quiver of shoes or a pair that can handle everything you throw at it, like the Mad Rock Lyra Women's Climbing Shoe. With a moderately asymmetrical shape, a shape retaining Tek Flex synthetic upper, and relatively flat sole, the Lyra can move from bolt clipping to pebble wrestling to gear plugging to plastic pulling without sacrificing performance or comfort. The Arch Flex polycarbonate midsole and dual hook and loop straps provide a supportive, glove like fit, while the 3. 8mm Science Friction 3. 0 rubber sticks to slabs, jibs, and dishes with equal aplomb. For the boulderers and serious sport climbers out there, the Lyra features a 3D molded Torque heel, which has a super snug fit and has been outfitted with textured X5 rubber for maximum grip, hold, and sensitivity when you're heel hooking your way up your newest problem. There's a rubber patch on top of the toe, too, to assist with toe hooks, and a slightly elastic R2 rand that hugs your foot without squeezing it to death.
