A perfect starter shoe when your boy or girl is past the jungle gym and onto rock walls.
If your youngster likes to pretend he's a monkey and has already mastered the art of climbing trees and jungle gyms, you should consider letting him take out his rambunctious energy on rock faces and walls. The Evolv Kids' Venga Climbing Shoe is a great first rock climbing shoe for your child so he can begin to develop his rock climbing skills with the security of a specialized shoe. The high friction TRAX rubber outsole provides great grip, and the asymmetrical toe profile that follows the natural anatomy of the foot (with the longest point at the big toe) offers a comfortable fit. The flexible upper allows the foot to freely move, and perforations in the upper, along with a breathable mesh tongue, keep feet cool. Because your little monkey is getting bigger every year, the shoe has an adjustable heel strap that increases the shoe by one full size to allow growing room. The hook-and-loop closure makes it easy for him to put on the shoe if he hasn't mastered laces yet.

- Q & A
Good price and durable
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The Evolv Venga are the go to shoes for my daughter. I appreciate the durable construction which holds up to the occasional dragging up the wall.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The photo below shows a size 3 on the left and a size 5 on the right. the middle shoe is a kids size 13. The size 3 is about 7-3/4" from heel to tip of toe. The size 5 is about 8.5" from heel to tip of toe
Runs several sizes small
My son normally currently wears a size 12, I ordered him a size 1 in these hoping he could wear them for a while, but they were way too small for him.
Just bought these in size 4 for my daughter who is on the 3 1/2 side and they were way too small.
