Calling this an approach shoe almost connotes that it isn't all that good of a climbing shoe. Fact is, the Fanatic is better than most of the competition's climbing-specific models. The Mad Rock Fanatic is a hybrid model that combines the comfort and support of a technical approach shoe with patented Mad Science rock shoe features. Sturdily built, with split ultrasuede leather construction with a padded polyurethane midsole for all-day comfort, and unique offset asymmetric speed lacing system for quick and positive fit. The molded textured sole is made of sticky Mad #5 rubber, and is designed for excellent traction in all conditions, all terrains. The power upper toe cap is made with Mad Formula #3 rubber to ensure that your toe jams will stay put in the offwidths.
