Great First Shoe
The Evolv Evo's were my first pair of Rock Climbing shoes an I still love them to this day. The aggressive rubber on the heel makes heel hooking super easy. I haven't had a single problem with these shoes to date. Remember when sizing yourself that these shoes don't strech. The way they feel in the store is the way they are always going to feel. If you have the extra cash for these shoes by all means go for them. The one thing that you should be aware of is that the shoes will smell. This is generally true with all synthetic shoes though but hey I'd rather have a functioning shoe that smells then a shoe that performs under par but smells like roses.
