I have bigger feet, anywhere from a size 12.5-13.5 in regular running and hiking shoes. This makes it hard to find a climbing shoe that fits well, especially with a larger forefoot. And even more difficult to find an aggressive or high performance shoe. I have played in many different shoes and recently climbed a few sessions in the Shaman's from Evolv, and while I loved the shoe and its features, it just wasn't fitting, even when I tracked down the 13.5. Now, this shoe is as comfortable as any shoe I have ever worn, its fit is like a glove and the new material in the upper stretches perfectly for a nice snug fit without becoming misshapen or sloppy. The SciFri 3.0 rubber is like glue for your foot and despite its softer sole it sticks to everything and holds on the smallest of edges. They are snug but easy on and off at the gym and the crag with the pull loops and three strap side entry set up. And the heel hooks and toe jams are as good as any shoe out there. Highly recommended for the hard to fit crowd and anyone looking to find comfort and preference in the same shoe for once.
