Description

Who said that climbing shoes have to be uncomfortable?

Evolv designed its Women's Elektra Climbing Shoe specifically for people (women or men) with low-volume feet so you can learn how to climb without shoes that flop all over. A flat profile with a low asymmetric curvature makes this shoe an excellent starter for beginners in a gym, and it performs well when you take it to outdoor crags. Evolv made the upper out of Synthratek, which is essentially perforated synthetic leather that's sturdy and rigid yet incredibly breathable. The shoe's nylon lining offers plush comfort that you appreciate when you're hanging from a top rope for what feels like hours. And two hook-and-loop straps offer a simple yet secure closure.

Evolv added an MX-P midsole that's soft and sensitive so you can feel the rock and learn how to smear with an impeccable prowess. The Trax rubber sole features high friction that helps prevent you from slipping off the greasiest foot holds in the gym, and a VTR rand at the toe keeps you climbing in this comfortable shoe for a long time.

Too small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

I gave this three stars only because it runs too small. I always wear a size 8 street shoe. I ordered an 8 in this, but needed a 9. I tried on a 9.5 at a local store afterwards, and that was a bit too big, but they were unfortunately out of a 9 at the moment. I also tried an 8.5 which was too small still. In comparison, I instead purchased La Sportiva Tarantulace in a size 7 (a whole size smaller than I normally wear), because the La Sportiva are leather and are expected to stretch a bit. These evolv are not supposed to stretch, and my toes were much more than slightly curled in the 8 - I couldn´t walk in them! Weird sizing! Otherwise, backcountry offered this shoe at a great price and it was in perfect condition upon approval. So, if you can try them on somewhere FIRST, then I recommend then. Note: I never climbed in them.
