Deluxe comfort without the deluxe price tag.

Whether you're cranking your first lead or looking for an all-day shoe for multi-pitch routes, the Evolv Royale Climbing Shoe gives you a super-comfortable fit without breaking the bank. The unlined leather upper stretches slightly over time to mold to your foot, and the double toe rand withstands prolonged use and the occasional toe drag.
  • Padded lower tongue for increased comfort while crack climbing
  • Ultra-sticky Trax rubber for excellent friction while smearing
  • Unlined upper molds to your foot over time
  • Low asymmetrical curvature for all-day comfort

Seriously Durable

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

I've had these shoes for about 6 moths now, doing indoor climbing 3-4 days a week. They've stayed entirely together and the soles still have great grip. They're a great value.

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.

  • 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 very durable

  • Gender: Male
  • 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

Good shoes that won't break your bank

  • Gender: Male
  • 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

  • Gender: Male
  • 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.

Hey i have a pair of evolv and it smell soooooooooo bad, does this one smell?
judging the review, i really want to get it and im not sure of either this one or step up to la sportiva, but if this one smell like other evolv, ill pass for sure lol

Best Answer Responded on

Ive had em for a while and they don't smell. The smell comes on how good you take care of them. If you sweat in them and leave them shut in your bag without spraying then they're gonna smell...

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

Responded on

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.

Nice Shoes

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been climbing for about 6 years now, mostly indoors and outdoors on some weekends. These are great for most climbs and I've only been unable to climb with these when using the smallest of footholds (when they slip off them), because the edges are fairly rounded. I don't usually have to worry about this though when climbing most routes.

I am aware that these are all-around, low-cost climbing shoes not made for about sizing for you guys- If these are your FIRST PAIR of climbing shoes you'll need something that fits snug so your toes just curve over a little. At a beginner level I wouldn't necessarily listen to what other guys are saying about going down a full size anything specific, and are therefore a common choice for beginners (I've seen several asking about what size to get here.) I'd like to clear a few things up or more. Climbing shoes are already made to be small for you're normal shoe size. If you've been climbing a while and are used to climbing shoes, it feels a lot easier to go down that much in size.

Try your regular shoe size first, which will give a tight but snug fit. Mine took about a month of climbing (2-3 times per week) to stretch just a little bit. They don't feel like they've stretched any more since, and when they do the fit seems more comfortable.

Overall these are awesome shoes for all-around climbing.

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!

For what it is . .

  • Gender: Male
  • 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!

I'm completely new to climbing, so this...

I'm completely new to climbing, so this is my first pair of climbing shoes, so is there any style of sock that works better than others with climbing shoes?
