Why We Like The Phantom LV Climbing Shoe

With the same sticky Trax SAS rubber and Tension Power System Plus as Evolv's original Phantom shoe, the Phantom LV Climbing shoe takes it a step further by tightening up the heel and toes box to fit a narrower foot. Along with featuring an aggressive downturn and sharp asymmetry that both thrive on overhung boulders and vertical sport routes, it also boasts an adaptive toe box that forms perfectly to our foot's shape over time.


  • Low volume aggressive climbing shoe for bouldering and sport routes
  • Trax SAS rubber provides supreme friction on small holds and hooks
  • Neoflex neoprene covers Knuckle Box to retain stretch after flex
  • Hook-and-loop closure ensures easy on and off with simple adjustments
  • TPS+ maintains aggressive downturn overtime
  • Item #EVLZ04M

have owned them for over a year and have held up great with indoor climbing multiple times a week. Got them resoled then turned them into outdoor bouldering shoes and they're incredible. Only issue is that the white strap is starting to fray but it's still holding strong otherwise. Overall, great shoe for experienced climbers who fancy standing on sharp edges. Just don't do much smearing in them

Haven't used the shoes yet, seem good, but heads up

These shoes use US sizing and it's not super clear they size in women's. I accidentally just assumed for some reason and have to order another pair. I'll edit my review once I try them.

Straight Big Toe Position is Unique and Wonderful

After years with the Shaman and Oracle, I have 100% switched to these. I also had the regular version of the Phantom, but it was too high volume for my C-width size 10 feet. I down-sized to compensate, but this made the shoes too painful to use very often. This low-volume version in a larger size is very close to perfect for me. Additionally, this is the only shoe I've found that puts the big toe in a straight, powerful position. A year ago I sprained my ankle while trying to run in some high-heeled, narrow approach shoes that pushed my big toe inward, like most shoes do. The damage was around my navicular bone in my arch. During my rehab, I've learned how much more powerful your arch and overall foot are when the big toe is NOT pushed inward. Take a look at the toe area vs the Shaman and you will see the design difference around the big toe. Evolv, thank you so much for making this low volume shoe is big enough sizes to fit this narrow-footed man. My messed-up left big toe does miss the Shaman's love bump a bit though.

Best all-around performance shoe in the game

This shoe is my go to for both hard outdoor climbing and competitions. It fits like a glove fresh out the box, has excellent edging power and a snug heel. Brand new, this shoe is plenty stiff for steep climbing on small footholds; once it's thoroughly broken in, it becomes flexible and sensitive enough for low angle slab smearing. I keep several pairs broken in to different levels of stiffness for various applications. It's also shockingly comfortable. If you're trying to climb hard and you only have one pair of shoes, this should be it.

I really, really like the Phantom (non-LV), but wished there was just a little "less" to them, thus, I LOVE the Phantom LV. On day one I thought I'd wear them on my warm-up to start breaking them in and ending up wearing them for the entire day, including on my project. These are the most comfortable aggressive shoes I've ever worn, and I don't feel like I'm sacrificing a thing in exchange!

Excels on the Steep!

Excellent fit for low volume feet. Perform well right out of the box with very little break in time required. Super durable construction with just the right amount of sticky Trax SAS rubber for long wear time. Semi-soft yet super supportive for toeing hard on knee bars and steep pockets. Phantoms heel hook like a dream! This is now my favorite climbing shoe for steep climbing... EVER!!!
