Description

Not your grandpa's climbing shoes.

Perform at a higher level, and at a higher elevation, in the Evolv Geshido Climbing Shoe. A performance-oriented design manifests itself in the forms of a leather upper and super sticky Trax XT-5 high-friction rubber for intimidating adhering power. A molded midsole reduces deadspace underfoot for more natural claw action, and an innovative cinch system offers a superb fit.

  • Perforated tongue increases breathability
  • Speed laces make this shoe quick and easy to put on and take off
  • Ultra-sticky Trax rubber for serious grip
  • Molded midsole for a more natural foot position

sizing

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

logged enough hours indoors and outdoors with these shoes to say: 1) size up for these shoes. 40 scarpa vapors fit perfectly for me, but i wish i had gotten a 41.5 or 42 in the geshidos, 2) the shoes do not expand much, if at all. 3) comfy, yet aggressive enough.. i switch to more downturned shoes on particularly demanding climbs

for the price, i'm happy with the purchase

Rubber wear and tear

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great fit and lived the grip of the rubber which makes me more bummed that both shoes rubber have worn and now have holes in the toes after only two months of climbing. Never had a shoe wear out this fast. Had a great time while they lasted though.

Awesome shoes

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

These shoes are great and I am really bummed they do not make them any more. Definitely going to get mine resoled. I don't climb ridiculous over hang roofs on the reg so I got these after having the shamans. This are still perfectly fine for the steeps but some people may complain? I got my street shoe size and they fit great now. Was a little tight at first but I think sizing up 1 to 1.5 sizes as some people said is ridiculous. They are leather and will stretch some.

Agreed - Size 8 mens fits size 8 womens

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

So far these are great shoes - sturdy and form fitting. I took the tip that suggested a size 8 mens is actually more like a size 8 womens. These are even slightly tight on me.

White and Purple Toes

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

One star because size 9 did not fit me. I even when I when up a half size from my normal shoe size but still no luck. My toes were in a LOT of pain from just walking around in them. I feel a 1 to 1.5 size jump would be appropriate.
However, they are working out great for my girlfriend who wears a size women's size 7 ish? Only climbed on them once but she did a fair amount of walking in them with no pain. (She is quick to let me know when if she does not like something)
Looks like I really lucked out because I do not have a lot of money and rushed to buy these while on sale. Like I said we have not put much wall time on them but I am sure they are going to work out great. I just do like the goofy sizing going on.

Weird sizing/great performance

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

So i'm onto my second pair of these trying to dial the fit in. I first got these in my street shoe size and they were extremely tight. could only stand to be in them for one route. after a few days of climbing I can keep them on for 2-3 routes max. I ordered the half size up and they are big enough they could be my next all day trad shoe if they stretch at all. seems to be a huge leap in volume for just a half size. Anway guess I have a new all day shoe now. If the smaller sizes stretches, the fit should be pretty good.

climbing performance has been great!

I wear an 8.5 US Men's street shoe. What...

I wear an 8.5 US Men's street shoe. What size would you recomment for this product?

Responded on

8.5 or 9, these run really small.

If you have wide foot I might go up to a 9.5. Also if this is your first climbing shoe I would go up to a 9.5.

Great Climbing Shoe!

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

I'm fairly new to indoor rock climbing and this is the first climbing shoe that I have ever purchased and I love them so far. They definitely run small though. I wear a US size 11 men's sneaker and a US size 11.5 men's running shoe. I sized up to a 12 in these and they fit almost perfectly. They did hurt quite a bit the first time I wore them but they either stretched out a bit or my feet got used to them because now they are great!

Runs Extremely Small

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

Shoes work well but I wear a 8.5 or 9 street shoe and need a size 11 of these. The backcountry.com rep recommended size 9 but I couldn't even fit my foot in that size, then I tried 10.5 and just barely too small.

Good Performer, Weak Rubber!

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

I loved the way these shoes performed on the rock. I bought these shoes 3 months ago and have been climbing on them 2, sometimes 3 times a week and the rubber has begun to tear on the toe area already. I have been cautious at placing my feet when i climb to reduce wear also.

Awesome website. great shoes

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

Great shoes. had to return them cause i sized down, as i usually do for climbing shoes. backcountry was awesome with their costumer service. I'll be buying all my gear here from now on just because of the awesome service i got. :)

Great shoe for thin face

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

I got these shoes in size 12, which is the same as my running shoes, and they are so tight that I need to loosen them as soon as I've finished the route. I should have taken the advice of the Backcountry gear expert and bought a 12.5. But they are stretching out some with use. They stand on super thin holds, so much better than my other shoes that are comfortable and mostly used on slab and cracks. I really like the lacing design.

GEt SHI# DOne

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

Great Shoe! I have a size 13 street shoe and I got the 13.5 and they fit perfect. They were a really tight at first but after I used them about 5 times the leather upper let the shoe conform to my foot for a perfect fit. Great for vertical and overhanging and my heel feels very secure which makes for nice heel hooking. I am probably going to get another pair of these with the velcro.

AWESOME SHOE THAT DOES IT ALL!

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

My review goes with using these shoes as a performance shoe, not an all day shoe. The Geshido Lace Up is one of the best all around shoes I've ever worn in over 20 years of climbing! Excelling on all types of climbing from super thin slab, gnarly cracks, steep faces, and overhangs. Laces allow for precision fit. I wear a size 10 street shoe. My Geshidos are size 9.5. I sized them to be more tight for performance. The first few days were a painful break in, but they are leather and once the stretched they fit like a glove! My pinkie toes hated me the most, but after break in everything is great. I can wear them for 30 min. or so before I want them off for a minute. YOU CANNOT simply compare to other Evolvs for sizing! I wear a pair of Pontas Lace ups as one of my looser fitting all day multi pitch shoes and they are size 9.5 too, but far more roomier. If your looking for a more loose fit it seems they still perform well according to other reviews.The "love bump" is cool, but after many great days climbing I managed to pretty much make it disappear in one shoe. Didn't even notice, still work awesome! The original rubber sticks well and last long (assuming you don't have horrible footwork). Mine have been resoled with C4 after tons of climbing (Rock & Resole doesn't do Trax) and they perform wonderfully. LOVE THIS SHOE!
