This thing works in such a way that it prevents movement sideways relative to the pad,   
but you can easily lift up objects placed on them. They can do this since it is most likely   
covered with some nano-sized coating, or maybe "nanohairs" that make an uneven   
layer that increase the surface area of the pad by a huge factor. The you have your   
regular van der Waals forces and such that keep the stuff intact.    
   
This means that you might be able to climb a wall, if you dont tilt yourself too much.

But if they are on the bottom of shoes and they can support that refrigerator on a wall how would one move their feet and walk? Would it not require a **** ton of force to pick up one's feet?

except for the fact that if you were to use these like walking on walls and stuff your body would immediately fall to the ground because of gravity
unless your legs are ******* buff as **** i don't think walking on walls would be possible
but if you put them on the hands and toes...

finally all those squats and deadlifts will come in handy!

That's what I was thinking. Crawl up the wall like a cat? It would still take a lot of strength but I think it can be done.

to be fair it is like climbing up a tree except its completely vertical and you don't grip

i would think it would be easier to climb a pole than a wall because at least climbing a pole you can get a sense of grip
