    Blending power with sensitivity.

    Evolv and Chris Sharma took a new approach to designing the Nexxo Climbing Shoe so you can tackle the steepest routes around with precise power and soft comfort. EPow is Evolv's newest system that ensures tension and power throughout the shoe in order to maximize your climbing potential. It has an aggressive downturned, asymmetric profile so you can grip foot holds on roofs with ease, and both the Love Bump at the bottom of your toes and the Knuckle Box at the top put your toes into a powerful position that's also incredibly comfortable. While the synthetic forefoot remains rigid and sturdy for the ultimate performance, leather from the mid to the rear keeps your foot super comfortable for long training days at the gym.

    A hook-and-loop strap seals your foot in the shoe while the elastic band around your ankle provides a secure fit. Evolv placed a microfiber lining in the forefoot for comfort and left the rest unlined for optimized sensitivity and precision. Its MX-P midsole has an additional semi-crescent nylon support that maximizes the shoe's downturned tension so it doesn't flatten within a few months. Evolv took its proprietary Trax rubber and shaved it down in critical areas to give your foot the dexterity it needs for precision on technical climbs. And a VTR rand increases the shoe's longevity so you can climb in this pair of Sharma-worthy shoes for a long time.

    Size em up. Great Bouldering/Gym Shoe

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

    For the price, these are a great high performance bouldering gym shoe -

    Make sure you size them up at least a full size. And if you want that comfort for gym sessions - GO FOR A SIZE AND HALF LARGER THAN YOUR NORMAL STREET SIZE.

    Definitely not for me

      I wear a 9.5 street shoe, I ordered these in a 10.5 and they were still half a size too small. They are so aggressive that the back side of the box is almost touching the heel, it's wild. Definitely not my cup of tea but if EXTREMELY aggressive is what you're going for then run it while they're on sale.

      Good but not the best.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: 12.5

      I've been using these for roughly 4 month, 1 to 2 times a week in the gym and couple time limestone/granite bouldering (I don't boulder a lot outside). They're great shoes, no doubt! I've also had the solutions so I'll be comparing the 2 shoes.

      1) Great edging on overhung rock with thick rubber
      3) Durable Rubber and design
      The soles almost look new, very impressed by durability. Looks like the upper will survive long enough to be resoled a couple times.
      4) Comforms but not too much stretch.
      At first there was extra space in the heal cause my heal didn't fit all the way, but after breaking them in, it stretched/conformed and now there is zero dead space. The result is rubber sock with a stiff edging platform. (stiff under the toes, soft/flexible under the arches of the foot)

      1) not sensitive
      The thick rubber doesn't seem to offer much feeling you want on those tiny limestone edges. for a bouldering shoe I felt this was a major drawback. (note: the midsole doesn't seem too stiff so I'm sure when these guys are really worn down they'll get more sensitive)
      2) Not very sticky rubber (comparatively)
      I would put evolv trax rubber on par with vibram XS edge, very durable but not nearly as sticky as Vibram grip2 or stealth C4/HF. Which again seems like a big drawback on a bouldering shoe.
      3) uncomfortable: I know it's a performance shoe and it's not supposed to be comfortable by any means (sooo this is kind of a moot point). But usually by the end of an indoor bouldering session, the top of my big toe is crushed. I only say this because the solutions I have in a comparable fit don't cause this much discomfort after I'm done.

      The Sportiva Solutioins have stickier rubber. The solutions also have a downturned toe but maybe a little less down camber (where as this shoe is crazy 'down cambered' but has a flat toe box [zero 'downturn']. The heels are widely different. The nexxo heel conforms to your foot but the Solution heel is very protective. I think the biggest difference between the nexxo and the solutions is the solutions ability to more comfortably use footholds the closer you get to vertical due to the difference in down camber, even though the solutions are not as stiff. Also I think the toebox on the nexxo is less prone to stretch/molding which means the solutions are actually (marginally) more comfortable.

      size 12 street shoes with narrow feet AA (brannock device)
      43.5 solutions (aggressive)
      a 12.5 Nexxo is an aggressive fit (comparable to 43.5 solutions), I usually have to pop them off and give my toes a break every now and then. Any smaller would have been toe suicide and any larger would create dead space.

      these are great shoe that edge exceptionally. But in my opinion, the not sticky(est) rubber and not the most sensitive sole means boulderers might find other shoe preferable. That being said, FOR PEOPLE LOOKING FOR A TRAINING SHOE, THE DURABILITY OF THE RUBBER AND AGGRESSIVE CHARACTERISTICS MAKE THIS SHOE UNBEATABLE FOR SEVERAL TRAINING HOURS IN THE GYM PER WEEK. those looking for an outdoor bouldering shoe may appreciate the sensitivity of the solutions.

      warning, this review may be affected by the simple fact that the solutions in general probably fit my foot better.

      When I first started using Evolv shoes I wasn't satisfied with their rubber. I was a die-hard Testerossa climber and found Vibram to be stickier than Trax. After years of use however, this is how I would explain Trax rubber to folks who just don't know:

      Evolv rubber isn't as "forgiving" as Sportiva. That is, it takes precision. You can't fumble around on smears and edges with Evolv shoes. With precision, however, I find their rubber to be the stickiest on the market. Hence why some of the best in the world, like Robinson and Sharma, represent evolvsports!

      I don't know if thats a fair comparison. I think if you're precise enough with any shoe the rubber will be fine. That still leaves evolv trax rubber on par (or below par) with vibram XS edge in my opinion. a very durable but not the stickiest rubber nonetheless.

      besides Daniel woods & Tommy caldwell use La Sportiva therefore Sportiva's shoe MUST be the best haha.

      My favorite bouldering shoe

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

      I have been climbing in Evolv shoes for 10+ years, and thought the Shamans were as good as a shoe could get (still love them) but these have outperformed my Shamans in every way. I wear size 11 in Defy, Pontas, and Shaman. I went with 11.5 in the Nexxo after reading several reviews, and they fit like a glove right out of the box. The break-in period is a little rough, but once they soften up a bit they are truly great shoes. Also, after 5 months of regular climbing in the Nexxos, they still smell like new. Glad Evolv has incorporated more leather in the shoe. Overall, this is the best shoe I have climbed in and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to get into some high performance shoes.

      Sticky Icky

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

      Very sticky rubber, they have performed well on all types of rock and despite the agressive toe, do well smearing. I have tried other brands of shoes and the rubber on these is the most versatile and sticky. I got the same size as my street shoe and they fit tight. These are my go to shoes and I love them.

      Can you comment on the sizing? I just purchased these in a 9 from BC and had to return them because they were too small. Don't have a place local where I can try sizing so really hoping that the 9.5 will fit. I'm an 8.5 street shoe size.

      Pleasantly surprised

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

      I was skeptical of the nexxo at first having tried evolv shoes in the past and wasn't extremely impressed with the quality.(I'm a ls guy)But I was in need of a shoe to hold me over while my solutions went in to get resoled. These happen to be on sale at the time for a very good price so I figured why not check them out. These things blew away my expectations evolv has finally done it and now I prefer these to my solutions. They have a way better heel not a huge tennis ball that pops off anything technical. And they toe hook as good as any other aggressive slipper out there. I've become a fan of the downturn toe on my solutions and thought these would be a step down for roof problems but they're not, I almost don't even notice a difference. And I still have the ability to edge on the tiniest of credit cards. For size reference I would say true to size a wear a 10.5-11 tennis shoe

      42- solution - aggressive fit

      41.5 python - aggressive fit

      42 - futura - aggressive fit

      43 - tc pro - all day fit

      11 - nexxo - aggressive fit

      For someone who really didn't want to like this shoe, I don't. I love them they are my new go to bouldering shoe, evolves new design has made me a believer. So much that I already ordered the new luchador lace for an all around gym shoe, they get here at the end of the week and I am psyched to try them out.

      love them

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs small

      I love these things, way better than the LS solutions and I haven't even gotten to climb in them yet! the rubber is much more firm but still sticky. the heel is better for hooks, the rubber on top of the toe is awesome and the whole entire soul is rubber, no breaks. the solutions felt far too squishy in my opinion.

      they run super small though but that's going to happen with an aggressive slipper. I wear a 9.5 in evolve defy's that fit perfectly, but im going with an 11 for the nexxos. solutions I wear a 42.5. in street shoes im a 10-10.5 (vans chukkas). cant wait to actually get some time in the gym with these and really put them to the test.

      So good!

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

      After climbing in the Nexxo for the last 2 months, I think these might be my near favorite shoes. I love the slip on, one strap design and have gone through The Teams, The Instincts, The Sharks, The Solutions, fiveten VXI and now these. The Nexxo is a perfect balance between sensitivity and stiffness.

      Great on any surface! Slab, overhang, and straight vertical. Toe hooks well and heel never slips!

      For sizing: I would say true to size. I wear 11 Sneaker..

      10.5 five ten team

      10 five ten VXI

      10.5 shark

      42.5 solution

      11 Nexxo

      Hope that helps!

      So good!

      Sport climbing Crusher

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

      This shoe excels on steep routes but also have the precision for hard bouldering. I found that i had to size a half size up (usually a 10 in Evolv but 10.5 in Nexxo). Since these shoes so aggressive but have such a stiff mid-sole you can continue to feel the power through long over hangs. The Nexxo is also surprisingly sensitive and the love bump makes sure your toes are in a comfy position. I have mainly used my Nexxo for sport climbing at Rumney, NH and the Red river Gorge, KY. I would very mush recommend these shoes!

      Do these shoes stretch at all?
