Big wall routes generally have a little bit of everything to keep you on your toes, and Evolv designed The General Climbing Shoe to be a boss no matter what you're climbing. It can jam a crack, smear a slab, and edge a crimp better than most. The high-top design covers your ankles when you're in wider cracks, and the stiff midsole ensures support when you're crimping all day long. A slight asymmetrical design gives The General a boost in performance without disrupting the all-day comfort needed for long climbing routes.

Fantastic feel & performance
I bought these Friday and drove down to Zion for a multipoint trad route (Iron Messiah), and it ended up being fantastic! These shoes made edging and jamming a breeze, and incredibly comfortable - they're the perfect trad shoe for people who don't have crazy narrow feet.
Is the fit similar to other Evolv shoes? I.e. true to size
