Nice change from the Elektra

Nice change from the Elektra

Posted on

Another great shoe from Evolv that doesn't rub the skin off your heel, and fits low volume feet like a glove. I bought these because the velcro closure on the Elektra didn't tighten down enough for my super low volume feet, so I wanted a lace up shoe (though now they have a lace up version of the Elektra). The Rockstars worked great for the gym, bouldering, and sport climbing outdoors. Eco-friendliness is a nice bonus!

I just ordered these last night after an Evolv rep was at my climbing gym. I fell in love IMMEDIATELY upon slipping them on; the fit was as comfy and perfect for my foot as my velcro Elektras, but I could get them way tighter on my low volume feet and the tighter fit and stiffer sole made them feel much dependable, especially for bouldering and edging. Jeni (and others with low profile feet) - I just thought I'd warn you not to ever bother with the lace up Elektras; you can't get them nearly as tight as the velcro version. I was skeptical that the Rockstars would work after having tried the lace up Elektras, but the Rockstar lacing was totally different. With my velcro Elektras I had to trim off about an inch from the end of each velcro strap because I pulled them so tight that the leftover strap would stick to the floor and get in my way on the wall. Rockstars to the rescue!

Amelia - I'm so glad you love those shoes! I went through two pairs that served me well, but I am onto the Shaman LV's now. They are a more aggressive shoe and put up with my climbing much better than the Elektras (of which I have had 4 pairs over the years) or the Rockstars ever did. If you love your Rockstars, I definitely recommend trying to the Shamans when you are on the market for shoes next! You won't be disappointed!
