    Get addicted to climbing.

    The Evolv Addict Slipper Climbing Shoe is a relaxed climbing shoe for beginners in gyms and crack or slab climbers who crave comfort throughout their routes. The flat profile and standard symmetric shape of this shoe let beginners feel at ease as they learn how to climb well, and these features let more advanced climbers jam their feet in cracks for a less painful experience. The elastic band and arch band keep your foot in place for optimum feel and performance and allow you to slip the shoe on and off in between climbs and pitches.

    • Unlined leather makes up the upper material of this shoe, so expect a half size to full size stretch after you break it in
    • Elastic band closure molds to your foot after you easily slip this shoe on
    • Low toe profile offers comfortable feeling for beginners and, with its smaller size, a powerful toe performance for advanced climbers
    • 4.2mm Trax high-friction rubber is ideal for slab, crack, or indoor climbing
    • Unlined leather gets your foot closer to the wall so your toe can feel the tiny jib it's smearing on
    • Standard symmetric curvature offers comfort for beginners and crack or slab climbers
    • 4-piece rand is made out of leather for a custom, moldable fit and comfort
    • Arch band keeps foot in place for improved edging

    the economical slipper

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I've had these shoes for a couple of months now and have found them to be a good shoe but not a great shoe. Nominal stretch for me, they don't fit people with morton's toe very well and for some reason evolvs tend to smell worse then any other brand of shoes i've had. I hate to compare but these shoes feel like a lower quality moccasym to me. The rubber isn't as sticky, the fit not as comfortable and the smell...That being said, the rubber on these shoes seems to be more durable in comparison to the moccs, they don't turn your feet bright red and for sport climbing they feel better. If you want a cheaper more durable slip on go with these, if you want some slippers that will slab better and be more comfortable, go with the mocs.

    Size up and enjoy!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    I purchased these as my Shaman's were a bit too uncomfortable for a full day of climbing. After breaking these shoes in for a full day I was amazed at the functionality of this shoe and the comfort provided. If I am planning to spend a lot of time climbing during the day these are my go to shoes. A great balance of comfort and performance.

    a little bit of everything

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 39

    These shoes run small for sure! I usually wear 37.5-38 in street shoes and it was hard to put on 39 in these shoes. They are still pretty tight and seem to be for narrow feet. I think once they stretch out they will be a great pair of shoes, but for now it's a bit painful. They are also pretty stiff and the heal cup seems small, feels like my heal is not very secure in the shoe. In general, they seem to be made really well. I found a great deal on them so I plan to keep them, but they are definitely not meant to fit all feet.

    Great Crack Climbing Shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    These shoes are awesome for cracks. I was a little skeptical at first, especially about how much they would actually stretch. They still seem like they run a bit small to me. But they truly did stretch about a size and softened up a lot, making them perfect for jamming into cracks. So far, the flexibility is great.

    However, they suck for gym shoes (not sure why the product description suggests that) or any sort of face moves or tiny cracks. The rubber isn't all that fantastic, they're very flexible, and have no edge, making face moves or hard gym climbing rather difficult. The toe box is also wide so I imagine they're pretty difficult in tiny cracks.

    But overall, comfortable, seem durable, and excellent in cracks!

    Calf Savers

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    After months of climbing Little Cottonwood slab and cracks in my aggressive Futuras, I decided that it was time for something with a little less of a downturned toe. After looking through many choices of moccasins, I went with the Addicts and so far have been very pleased.

    I rock a 44.5 in my Futura's and downsized to a 44 in the Addicts, which although painful at first, has been perfect after the shoes stretched slightly. They are now extremely comfortable for all day climbing. These are great for crack climbing and pawing your way through desperate slab, but are less ideal for anything steep.

    These are a steal for the price, definitely worth checking them out!

    Comfortable and solid shoe

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I own a pair of Miura lace-ups that are pretty snug, so I wanted a more comfortable shoe for warming up and gym use. I love these shoes. I've used them indoors 3 times a week for a month, and have climbed with them 3 or 4 times outdoors, both bouldering and sport. I hardly ever put my Miuras on while at the gym now. The Addicts were fairly stiff and difficult to put on the first few times, but they have since loosened up and are much easier to take off and put on. They haven't stretched out yet after about a month of regular use, so I suspect they won't stretch much. Decent edging both on plastic and real rock. Heel hooks kind of suck with them, but that is to be expected with a slip-on style.

    I wear a size 11 or 10.5 in street shoes, and the 11 was the correct fit. I didn't want to go too aggressive, but my toes are just barely curled in them with the size 11.

    Limited Stretch, Climbs Good

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small

    In hopes of a steal of a deal given a recent sale, I purchased the Addicts with the intention of using them as a gym shoe and a crack slipper for the Creek. At first, they sucked. I sized them in a 9 after trying on multiple sizes in person (I wear a 9/9.5 street shoe, size my Miuras in a 39.5). It felt like 5.11 just to get the shoe on. Hearing that they stretched decently I was relieved as my toes crumpled slightly in the shoe. The heels hurt for a long ass time, could just by my feet but it took about two months to truly loose the pain in the heels. As for now, the toes still crumple up a bit, and thus they are pretty painful for crack climbing. For a kick around gym shoe, they work great. It's like a Miura that can't edge like a goddess but still climbs well. If sized correctly, I could see how they would rock for crack climbing, however the stretch is not as significant as in a Moccasym. Hope that helps.

    Better than the moccs??

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 40

    I'm a 41.5-42 street shoe and purchased these in a 40. I use these for all terrains. They don't perform the best at steep overhangs, but that's what my Dragons are for. The slightly pointed toe box and full cupping heel really made these shoes stand out to me compared to other flat slippers. Took roughly 15-20 sessions to get used to the shoe and mold them to my feet. The rubber is surprisingly sticky and durable. I would put it on par with La Sportiva's XSedge. The midsole feels stiffer than a mocc's which is better for edging in my opinion. A winner in book!

    Really narrow fitment

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 8.5

    I bought these about a half size to small. The length was right but they were extremely painful on the top of my foot and took me about five minutes to get the first one on. After breaking them in they are better but become painful if I leave them on for to long.

    Other than that the shoe performs very well. I mainly use these shoes for training but have also used them for cracks. They edge extremely well for a slip on and make for bomber foot jams.

    I would recommend this shoe to anyone looking for a solid training shoe or trad shoe just be sure to watch the sizing depending on what you will be doing with them.

    Favorite shoes by far

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 38

    These are my absolute favorite climbing shoes. I have them in 2 sizes (a loose pair for crack climbing and a tighter pair for face). They have remained snug around the foot, even after 100+ routes. Edging is moderate for a slipper. Great product!

    3rd tries is the charm.. well sorta

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 7.5

    so... this is my 3rd shoes that i tried .. And i like this one most . It's easy to put on.. and has great grip. It will leave a yellow mark on your feet thou .. and for some reason .. my right shoes pinch a little on the back . But i blame it on my feet.

    Weird sizing but awesome shoe!

    • Fit: Runs small

    I wear a size 7.5/8 in Women's street size -- so I ordered a 6.0 in these. WAY too small! I wanted these for a comfortable crack shoe so I went up a size. STILL so small...even for sport climbing shoes! I think my foot may be more on the wider side. So, I think I'm going to purchase a 7.5, which is my street shoe size.



    They're great shoes, just try them on before you buy so you're not paying more in return shipping than you are for the shoes :)

    Great so far!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    Got these for my girlfriend as an inexpensive replacement for a pair of La Sportiva Oxygyms.

    We go to the gym most of the time, but drive down to Joe's Valley or Maple Canyon for some real rock action once a week.



    She wears a women's 11, and the size 9 slipper fit perfectly. Could have probably gone down a half size for a more aggressive fit, but the 9 seems solid for face and some crack climbing.



    Rubber seems sticky and construction is solid. We don't doubt these will last a while. They're perfect for while we wait to get her Katanas(laced) back from the re-sole shop

    Love 'em

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    They're soft and sticky and comfortable, just as any good crack shoe should be. I've worn these on all-day adventures and my feet have stayed comfortable the whole time.

    If you're looking for a dedicated crack shoe, get your normal street shoe size. If you're looking for a comfortable all-around shoe, size down a half size and they'll be able to edge and toe surprisingly well!

    For reference, I wear a size 5-6 street shoe, and the size 6 Addicts fits just right!

    Nice shoe

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I am currently using this shoe as my warm-up shoe and to try to get back into crack climbing after a long hiatus. I like this shoe for cracks for the slipper form factor, and unlike the Moccasym it still has a significant midsole so it edges decently. In fact I dare say it edges better than decently -- I was shocked to find it edges quite well. I feel like its good for cracks but I'm pretty bad at crack climbing so I'm not sure what my opinion is worth. Previously I used the Anasazi VCS for cracks and these have a similar toe profile, but the rubber is slightly softer and stickier than 5.10's Onyxx, so I feel a tad more secure.



    I am wearing a 9.5 in the Addicts; for comparison my street shoe is a 10 (in minimalist shoes, Merrell Trail Gloves). When this pair wears out I think I will go up a half size. At this size they edge well but aren't as relaxed as I wanted for a warm-up and crack shoe. The fit is somewhat narrow, which is unusual for Evolv. I feel like my foot is pinched laterally a bit and it results in a hot spot around the first joint of the small toe. Hopefully sizing less aggressively will address this. Since Evolv advertises you can size these down for good performance, be aware if you do that the fit is a bit more narrow than other Evolv shoes.

    Ok but not great

    Have a lot of slippers in my collection. These are my least favorite. Mid-sole is too stiff. Fits like a Pontas and is just as stiff. If you are expecting these to be similar the Moc or Cobra well, they are all slippers and that's about it.I'm a size 10 street, I wear a 8.5 in Moc and 40.5 in Cobra. 9.5 in the Addict was tight and right. 10 would be good for all day use. I really wanted these to be awesome..

    Paraphernalia for that crack addict!

    Having the proper shoe for shoving into a crack makes the difference between enjoying crack climbing or submitting yourself to clipping bolts for the rest of your life. Do yourself a favor and score a pair of these bad boys.



    The leather will stretch - up to a 3/4 size so size her down a bit.



    The leather also does peel a bit from the black elastic inner, but it doesn't effect the performance of the shoe especially since you are abusing it.



    And they will make your feet a slight yellow tinge. But this is to be expected.



    Awesome

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small

    These are great shoes so far, but double check the sizing. I am a 37 in the last 5 pairs of evolv shoes I have owned ( which is a 5) and I literally could not get my foot into this shoe at that size. Great shoe so far with an excellent fit once I sized up a whole size. The instep area is really snug and thick, so I am not worried about it stretching like other slippers. Just investigate the sizing first.

    Great crack and all around shoes

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    These are probably the most comfortable out-of-the box shoes I've ever worn. As Steph points out, down below, there are no seams in the toe box so it limits the pain of jamming into cracks. The rubber is right where it needs to be and the mid-sole is just stiff enough to give a good platform, but still some sensitivity for face climbing. Nice precise toe and a really comfortable heel. The rubber is an sticky as the best out there. Fit to your street shoe size for the perfect all day or crack climbing fit. Go down 1/2 size if using mostly for sport climbing.

    I wear Women's La Sportiva Katanas in size 40 . These are mens sizes, where I'd usually where a 7, I think. Looking for an all day multi-putch type shoe. What size would you recommend?

    I have a pair of these in size 6 women. I want to order another pair. If I choose size 6 from the drop down menu will it be men size 6 since these shoes are under the men climbing shoe tab ?

    Unanswered Question

    I wear a size 40.5 Katana, which is tight but comfortable as well. I think a sie 40 Katana would be optimal fit for me but I enjoy the extra bit of comfort space. What size would be optimal in this shoe for me? Thanks ahead of time!

    Unanswered Question

    I wear a size 40 katana that is tight but also comfortable and a size 42.5 quantum that is very tight and not comfortable. Im just looking for a new all day cragging shoe thats tight and comfortable. What sort of size should I be looking at? How much do these stretch? Cheers.

    I wear an Evolv Geshido Lace up in a size...

    I wear an Evolv Geshido Lace up in a size 8 for a performance, tight, snug fit. I generally take then off between every couple routes. What size should I be looking at in these if I want them to fit as a more all day comfortable slab/ gym shoe?

    Best Answer

    I'd say 7.5 or 7 depending on how aggressive you want to go.



    I wear the same size Geshido lace, and have maybe slightly larger feet. The 7.5 addict was a nice snug fit for me, with the 7 being pretty painful out of the box, but probably would stretch OK for a real tight fit.

    Does anyone have any first hand experience...

    Does anyone have any first hand experience with how much these are going to stretch? I know the leather upper means its going to stretch quite a bit, but it seems to be incased pretty well with rubber. I've tried these on and love the fit, but if they stretch more than half a size, I think they'll start slipping off my heel pretty easily. I can't down size any more than the 42.5 (literally, I could not get my foot into a 42), so just looking for an actual stretch factor from someone that's broke them in already.
