Stephen Sperrywrote a review of Evolv Shaman Climbing Shoe on May 25, 2016
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small
These are my first Evolv's that I really liked. I wear a 10.5 (43.5) in almost all La Sportiva's and I wear 11.5 in these so size up.
The cushioned upper makes them extremely comfortable. They are very light weight (especially compared to my Solutions).
They have great feel throughout the shoe
The toe rubber is ridiculous for toe hooking
Rubber is great and seems to be holding up nicely
3 strap system is great for dialing in the fit.
The heel is extremely thin, which adds some sensitivity but also doesn't feel great on certain heel hooks. (Think the polar opposite of the Solution heel cup) The thin strip of rubber down the center is thick enough but the sides have nothing. Not a huge deal but something worth noting.
