    Outdoor monsters

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I have been using these shoes now for a little over a month and really love them. They check all the boxes. First off the price point is killer for the performance of the shoe. I love the toe box as its perfect and grippy on the smallest cracks. They are ultra comfortable which is the biggest factor for me. I am trad climbing and not really doing sport climbs that aren't too hard. My one goal is have a shoe i dont want to rip off as soon as i get off the wall. With these i can stand for hours on a multi pitch route without thinking about how uncomfortable my feet are. Finally they are super durable. Everything is really well made to hold up over time. If you are just getting into climbing or looking for a more comfortable shoe for multi pitches this is your ticket. Let me know if you are unsure about sizing as i would be happy to help with that as well as answer any questions!

    I want to buy my first pair of climbing shoes.
    I know for a fact that a pair of 40.5 LaSportiva Finales would fit quite good.
    I tested a friends 41.5 pair and felt like a size down would be perfect.
    Now, this shoes look very nice and read only good things on internet reviews.
    Which one would you recommend, and if I were to buy these; Which size should I buy?.
    I normally wear 9.5 shoes.

    So Far So Good

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 16

    I've had these shoes for two months now. I've indoor sport climbed/bouldered for three days a week consistently, some days more. Definitely a good beginner purchase for the price.

    Great/Affordable Beginner Climbing Shoe

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 11

    I bought these when I first got into boulder. They are extremely comfortable and fit true to size when it comes to size with your street shoe. I have used these frequently since my purchase and they are holding up very well.

    Some things I have noticed:
    Pro: Can wear these all day they are that comfortable
    Cons: Feel: not the most sensitive shoe when trying to feel holds with your feet
    Blue feet: Not wear socks you'll eventually get smurf feet, so shower afterwards

    Solid Climbing Shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 15

    A great shoe that fits well and gets the job done.

    amazing climbing shoes from evolv

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

    More than a year of use reveal a high quality brand even in its cheapest and more simple products.

    The evolve royale are comfortable enough to be worn 4 hours in a row and dont walk like a duck afterwards.



    Not as technical as you may want if you are not a beginner but they hold your fingers better than you expect .



    Bottom line :

    Great shoes, super durable and for the price you cant go wrong .

    Great First Shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I bought these as my first climbing show and like them a lot. They feel really good and do a great job as far as i know.. being a novice my opinion is limited. The blue will stain your feet for the first little while. My socks would cone out blue after i wore them.



    I am still in the breaking in process so they are snug but i am sure they will be good when i get them rolling

    Awesome.

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

    Great customer service {allowed me to exchange to a new different sized pair, after I found out they didn't fit me, (my fault)...and I have even used the previous pair for a climb!}

    The shoes are great, really form fitting and had some good compliments.

    I wear 9.5 street size, and got these in 9.5 too. Haven't stretched much at all.

    Not a bad bad shoe

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I recommend these for a beginner because they are cheap compared to some of the non-all around shoes. The flat profile is good to support your feet when starting out, as you may not be used to using certain muscles in your feet. Also, because they are all-around, they will be pretty decent at almost everything. As you start climbing more and more, you will figure out what your next more specialized shoe should be.

    Not a bad bad shoe

    Not very durable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These were my first pair of shoes, Ive had these shoes for about 3 months now, climbing 4-5 days a week in them. They have been tearing at the heel for a while now, and started tearing about 3-4 weeks since ive had them. Heel hooking with these shoes are pretty bad, the shoe tends to slip a ways off your foot. Everytime you wear them, your foot gets stained blue from the interior. Also if you plan on getting this shoe, it stretches AT LEAST 1.5 sizes

    Not very durable

    Good shoes that won't break your bank

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I'm very pleased with these shoes. My toes are not crammed and don't get stiff, but still there is that important snug fit so important for edging and smearing. Soles are solid and don't slip. Toe box is sturdy and protect my toes when jamming. I would say that this is good all around shoe. If you are not hell bent on bagging the grades and want a shoe that is comfortable and reliable than this is that shoe.

    Pretty Rad

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are great shoes for the price! Im a pretty avid climber, intermediate i'd say and they rock. They fit pretty true to size so i wouldn't suggest downsizing for them. Im a regular shoe size 8 and the 8's are perfectly snug.

    Good enough for beginner

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    If this is your first pair of climbing shoes, it would probably be best to stick with your street shoe size. They should be tight and snug, but not painfully.

    These ones are okay for general climbing, but the edges are pretty rounded and they have this irritating stitching along the heel that leave blisters. I even tried them with a thin pair of socks and they still did that.

    (Edit: I've since moved on to over more advanced shoes since starting out, and they have not given me the heel blister problem due to hard stiching)

    Good enough for beginner

    I I have wide feet, would these be ok for me?

    Best Answer

    So hopefully I am not too late, but I also have wider feet and at first these shoes felt like they might destroy my feet when I would climb, but as soon as I got to climbing, the shoes gave in the right way and I have never been disappointed. The dye bleeds like crazy at first though, thought I was going to turn into a smurf.

    If i wear a size 11 street shoe, what size should i get in this shoe?

    It really depends on how you like your climbing shoe to fit. Since these are leather uppers, the'll give you a good amount of stretch. Probably anywhere from 1-2 sizes of stretch depending on how tight you like to tie them. So I'd say get a 10.0 and assume they'll be a little tight at first, but after the first two times out, they'll probably start to move towards that "perfect fit."

    I just got these shoes and I got them a half size smaller than my street shoes and they fit pretty good now but how much more will they stretch out because they are leather?
