Following in Mad Rock's tradition of being an innovator, we've incoproated all of our next gen features into one shoe. We've spent countless hours developing a new a material called the Power Flex Upper which allows for a tight, glove-like fit WITHOUT the pain that is inherent with other performance shoes. By infusing a two-way brushed polyester material with our new Science Fiction 3.0 formula, you can get that performance-like fit with minimal breaking in. The Con series models are also the first climbing shoes to incoporate the use of a 3D molded polycarbonate midsole. The Concept 2.0 uses our AES-1 Midsole design to provide a stiff flex that never breaks down. The combination of our AES-1 midsole and 3D molded rubber concave sole creates a cup that you can use to grab at features like a hand. A hemp foot bed keeps odors under control while also minimizing stretch. As with all of our new 2011 models, the Concept 2.0 is manufactured with our new R2 rand system that increases heel and arch tension but allows for a more sensitive and comfortable fit.
True to Mad Rock's tradition of being an innovator, the Concept 2.0 is packed with performance-oriented features to make the most of your climbing. A new material called Power Flex creates an upper with a tight, glove-like fit but without the pain than can be associated with other climbers. Plus an innovative rubber concave sole creates a cup that you can use to grab at features like a hand. And to keep life more comfortable once you land, a hemp foot bed controls odors while also minimizing stretch.See all Product Description

I also have a pair of Mad-Rock Mugen Tech Lace 2.0 shoes. These are size 11.5, and they are a little bit too loose for optimum edging performance. However, they still fit well, and I can wear them all day with only minor discomfort. Thus, I suggest that anyone with a foot similar to mine in size and shape should buy a full size up.
I have been climbing regularly for 5 months. The Concepts are my second pair of shoes. They are the bomb for toe-hooks. They also edge well. They are good for overhung routes. They do a good job of protecting your feet in cracks. These shoes are easy to heel hook. It is possible to wear these shoes for hours on a long mulit-pitch route, but I think you could find rock shoes better suited to these purposes.
Overall the durability of Mad Rock shoes is very good. I got three months out of my Mugen Tech's while climbing 3+ times a week for 3+ hours a session as a sloppy newbie before they needed to be re-soled. Now, after two months, the Concepts show only minor wear. Thus, I expect these to last longer mostly because my foot-work is slightly less horrible.
I recommend these shoes.
