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.

Great Shoe, weird sizing

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Height: 5' 5"
    Weight: 165 lbs
    Size Purchased: 9.5

I'll admit, this is my first climbing shoe, I asked several seasoned climbers about sizing and how the shoe should fit. After much debated and reviews on this shoe, I ended up ordering my actual shoe size (knowing this shoe fits smaller than most climbing shoes). When the shoes arrived it was still WAY small. I ended up returning and ordering a size larger than what I normally wear, the shoes is still very snug but fits great. As far as climbing goes, they are awesome! I've used them several time with no complaints. I thought about giving the shoe 4 stars because of the hassle of returning and reordering but at the end of the day they perform great so 5 stars it is!

So pleased!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Height: 5' 2"
    Weight: 95 lbs
    Size Purchased: 8.5

I climb indoors only, 3-4 times a week for fitness. Tried an "aggressive" shoe a few months ago and chose not to deal with the discomfort. The Elektra is extremely comfortable, even when climbing for several hours. There was a slight heel rub with one shoe for the first couple of wearings, but that was the only thing requiring a break-in. My street shoe size is 7.5 and my Elektras are 8.5. They fit well -- not too tight, not too loose. Just right! I love the closure design, which makes it easy to get a perfect fit.

I've been climbing just over a year and am currently climbing 5.10/V4 in these shoes. They're plenty sticky so I have no worries about staying on even the small holds. Toe and heel hooks are no problem. I don't even think about my feet anymore.

After wearing them for about a month, I think these are the perfect shoe for my needs. I'll definitely buy them again.

Great Beginner Shoe

Great first shoe. Velcro makes them easy on and off. Comfortable fit. My wife really likes hers. So I like them too.

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.
