5 5

Mean N Green

I feel that the Predator G2 is one of Evolv's best shoe designs. They are super down turned and continue to stay down turned, as they are pretty stiff. These have been my main pair of shoes for the past 6 months. The rubber is very durable and very sticky. I would have to say the 5.10 stealth and the La Sportiva XGrip is a bit stickier, but the Trax is much more durable. The heel is extremely aggressive, there is nothing else out there like it. The color is very flamboyant, but looks good. I got these in a 9.5US(I wear EU39 in La Sportiva). I would say they stretched out 1/4 of a size.
The only bad thing I have to say about these shoes and Evolv in general is they tend to develop a rancid stench.

As noted by the prior review, the downturn on these shoes is unlike anything I have ever experienced. If your an aggressive climber, you probably don't need to be told just how beneficial this can be, however in my case, long term comfort is something to be sorely desired. Depending on your style, you may not want to use this as your go to shoe, but more of a pull on-pull off sort of thing.
