Hello friends!

I have a buddy that has gone climbing with me at my local gym and I got him hooked!

Told him I was going to start bouldering outside and he wants to join in the activities.

He is a college student so he is looking for cheap shoes.  

When he rented shoes at my gym, he ended up wearing a size 12 Madrocks.

If you have a pair you are willing to sell cheap or giveaway, please let me know!

Ask your gym manager. Gyms sometimes sell their old rentals for cheap. 12 is a hard size to find because demand is low. Your local gym manager might be willing to let go of their oldest pair in circulation, or at least keep your information for when a pair becomes available.

MP77 has a good suggestion. I have been climbing in the stonemasters and I enjoy them. With them at a little over 20 bucks I think it is a steal.

Thanks for the suggestions guys.  I will definitely let my buddy know and see what he wants to do.

I’ve got a pair of scarpa origins I’d sell for $35. I used them when I first started and they still look great. Size 45.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
