Jonathanwrote a review of Evolv Shaman Climbing Shoe - Men's on July 9, 2016
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small
The original shoe was far better, as the update has soft, flimsy rubber, and chintzy buckles. After one month or less of use the leather strap which houses the buckle ripped clean through, rendering the shoes worthless.
The heel pops off with aggressive hooks as well, yet another flaw from Evolv. Furthermore, they design all their shoes with sewn pieces that run up the inside of the heel, causing painful depressions in the heel of your foot after short sessions. I feel Trax rubber is not only flimsy, but isn't as sticky as others on the market as well.
Honestly, I wouldn't recommend these or any of Evolv's line of shoes. They just don't stand up against competitors like La Sportiva and Scarpa.
