Supra Climbing Shoe
If the Evolv Men's Supra Climbing Shoe can't stick to that greasy, basically non-existent foothold on your project, then nothing can. Picture the day you finally slip the Supra on for that project you've been slipping off of since the day you started climbing it. You have harder grades under your belt than this measly project, and the amount of flailing has taken your frustrations to levels that you didn't imagine possible. You know every edge and gradation on that greasy, slippery foothold, and watching the Supra smear it brings you newfound confidence. Sure this shoe helps you get past that, but unfortunately the crux is the top-out, so you have a whole new problem to suss out for years to come.

Vert & Slab Edging Dream
- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size
- Size Bought
- 5` 10"
- 140 lbs
Overall Impression: STIFF & PRECISE ------ The Supra is an high performance edging shoe designed for vertical and moderately off-vert terrain. It is genuinely stiff thanks to a rigid midsole & the thick full length trax xe edging rubber on the outsole. This creates a very supportive edging platform, making powering off of tiny chips and crystals a dream. Coupled with it's pointed toe and semi-aggressive fit, these factors will (require) and reward highly precise footwork - meaning the Supra will give it's best performance outdoors on techy face climbs, slabby boulders, and hard trad routes. Excellent for toeing-in / frontpointing / & reachy inside edging. ---------- What it's *not* designed for: Gymnastic Indoor Bouldering / Volume & Sloper focused climbs / Significant Overhangs / Your first shoe --------- Fit: Aggressive yet Comfortable ------- The Supra fits moderately aggressive worn true-to-size (despite being flat), and is designed to be worn this way. Though the toes are focused and curled for edging performance at this size, the overall flat shape and construction of the shoe make it comfortable to wear for longer periods of time compared to other models in the "high edging performance" category. A half size in either direction would accommodate size tweaks for comfort or performance as needed, but true to street size is likely spot-on ------- Toe Box: asymmetrical and fairly pointed ------ Volume: Moderate ------- Width: Medium-Narrow ------- *Heel: Shallow-Narrow* ------- Comparable to: La Sportiva - Miura Lace / Miura VS (but with a more intricate construction & ergonomic fit) ------ Would make an *excellent* 2 shoe performance quiver paired with something soft & downturned i.e. sportiva solutions / tenayas / scarpa furias etc. ------- REPEAT: AWESOME STIFF TECH-CLIMBING SHOE !

- I returned this product before using it
I love the shoe, only thing is that it runs very small. I wear a size 10-10.5 in street shoes. (Size 10 Vans) and I ordered the Supra in a 10.5. I still couldn't fit my heel in with all 3 velcro's open. Pretty bummed now that you don't have my size. Ill have to find something else

Ok if on sale
- I've used it several times
I bought these with a 30% off discount, and am overall pleased with the Supras. They are comfy. They edge well on anything that isn't too overhung. Great for multi pitch bc of comfort and/or vertical sport climbs with small edges. The rubber took a few sessions to break in, but are sticky enough. I have the same size as my street shoe, 11.

Comfortable with a firm toe
- I've used it several times
Pretty comfy so far. Not expecting too much break-in. Went with a Sz10 as I couldn't get my foot into a 9.5 - I normally wear 9.5-10 for street shoes, sz9 for snowboard boots. Feels similar to the Kronos (sz9.5) since it's not an aggressive downturn, but the edging feels way better for me than the Kronos, especially on the inside of the foot. I have Shamans in a similar sz10, but the Supra doesn't cramp my feet at all. I can probably wear these for 1-2 hours and have minimal fatigue, where I have to take my Shamans off between climbs. As with all evolv shoes for my particular foot, my heel doesn't seem to fill out on the sides (I have better luck with 5.10s for my heels). But otherwise this shoe is fantastic and exactly what I expected/wanted in a versatile yet comfortable bouldering shoe.
