Founded by one of the most influential climbing shoe designers of all time, Mad Rock redefines the standards with their innovative, original climbing shoes. We have pairs for every occasion at BananaFingers shop, plus a selection of gear.
Korean-born Young Chu was the epitome of a dirtbag: spending summers in Camp 4 at the base of Yosemite, winters ice climbing, and, in between, designing and making climbing gear to save money. His innovative, high-quality craftsmanship landed him a job as Five Ten's head designer for ten years. Then, in 2002, he founded Mad Rock, a company smaller than the powerhouses of climbing shoes, but with the clear, dirtbag vision of making the best, longest-lasting product possible.
