    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

    Great Shoes!

      Bought these as my first pair of climbing shoes and COULD NOT BE HAPPIER! I've used them both in the gym and at Red River Gorge, KY over the last three months and have no complaints. Mine have not stretched as much as some suggested, but that may come over a bit more time. I have a size 15 foot and had trouble with the shoes at my university's gym, but these have been awesome.

      Love the lace-up, but I'm a bit traditional. The feel is great through the toes, and I haven't noticed any slipping in the heel. My feet come out feeling pretty good after every weekend trip or weekday workout. If you're considering it, go for it!

      Oh yeah, the blue will get you some compliments.

      Capable shoe

        I got in a pinch and had to buy a pair of these thinking I may have to replace them, but they are a solid shoe. I have long toes and a narrow foot and they fit like a glove. I'm sport climbing and beginning to bump 11's and these haven't held me back. I prob could go another half size to prevent some rolling of my foot on really small holds. Try a pair on and with the right foot you'll love em. The blue suede Is rad too!

        Capable shoe

        For what it is . .

        • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

        Got these on SnC on a whim almost a year ago. For what the Royale is, they're great. For any trad route, or non-techy/non-super overhung sport route they'll crush.



        Full leather with toebox lining allows conformity in the toes and perfect stretch everywhere else. The reinforced rand and stiffer midsole mean edging is easy and slopy footwork isn't going to make you throw these things away after a month of use. Tongue of the shoe is ultra comfy and breathable, probably more so than any other evolv shoe I've worn/seen.



        I sized em down 1.5 from street and they stretched well after a couple days/week to be the perfect half day to all day shoe. Wearing them hour after hour only feels like someone threw a nice, comfortable, and supportive, semi-sensitive rubber sock on you.



        There have been no durability issues with the rubber or any kind of peeling, etc. The eyelets of the leather material get a bit of wear from tightening the laces, but they won't break or tear on you due to some reinforcement stitching in the area.



        I believe these are a nice, well thought out addition to any trad climber or a beginning sport climber.



        Go for it!

        great scott!

          been using theses a lot in the gym and they've been nothing short of amazing. I've got a foot that's exactly 9 1/2 inches and I ordered the 8.0's. Don't get me wrong they were nice and tight, but they started stretching within 2 sessions and every trip they become more and more perfect.

          The toe is pretty round, but it hasn't harmed my opinion. If anything it s even more supportive on dimes because of it. Rubber is mega grippy in the gym and I could only see these kicking ass outside. These have great breathability and the tongue is padded very well. I've worn these + 4 hours straight without much issue besides the occasional foot cramp. Heel is solid and grippy for hooks and matches and there's no wiggle either, I don't have large heels.

          Worth what I paid on snc for sure. They're not the greatest for overhangs but but not the worst either!

          Forgot to mention that the toe is slightly downturned and has a bit of a lip to it. So you can grab things with your feet without too much effort when it gets overhung on your route. Like i said, not the best for overhangs, but since the toe has stayed downturned, they're not terrible either.

          And they totally turn your feet blue, even after months of use. Not the entire foot, just where you sweat on the upper. Since they breathe really well it's not that bad.

          These will, and do, STRETCH!

          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?
