Evolve Rock climbing shoes


ElektraI normally wear a size 6 in shoes and had this climbing shoe in a 5.5. I ordered that same size but for some reason this time it was too small and exchanged for a size 6 and it fits great. The only issue with these shoes in general is they get really stinky with wear, but I know I like the shoe so keep getting it until I find another one I like better.

These are a great pair at a reasonable price if you're a beginner at rock climbing. I normally wear a size 5 or 5.5 but 5 fit great on me. They're typically true to size and if you're going one size up then that might be too big already. Your toes are suppose to curl up a bit, and leave little-to-no room for wiggle all around. These are NOT meant for walking like any regular shoe and will be uncomfortable if you try to do so for long. Wear these without socks and although they might be slightly uncomfortable, if at all, they'll fulfill their purpose and stretch a bit over time. Definitely recommend these Elektra's and I love the purple color!

I wish I'd listened to the anon review. I have slightly wide feet and the sole is just too small, it felt like I was balancing on a pad. They look really nice and fit well otherwise...

First off, I am pretty strict with shoes. I have to say they fit well, run a half size small.(to be expected with a form fitting hike/trail shoe) They glove fit the foot. However if you are going to use a arch support, they do kinda hug the back heel, which I am prone to hee blister, as my heel sticks way out in the back.They might relax though. I can tell by the soft material, the shoe will have a small tendency ti mis-shape. as a cheaper shoe would. the sole is amazing. USA made. I can tell the sole rubber is of high quality. All in all a good show for the price.

Cruzer Slip-OnI love these shoes. I initially bought them because I was having trouble with my Achilles tendon and needed a comfortable gym shoe that would not irritate it. Now I wear them everywhere. I've worn them walking city streets, at the gym, and hiking in the mountains. They're super cute and very comfortable. Another reviewer mentioned that the soles leave black marks on the floor, and that is true. So I don't wear them on my white kitchen floor! Other than that, they're great.

Cruzer Slip-On Rated:2 stars!

When you first put it on, it's very comfortable, almost like a heavy sock. Looks nice and minimal. The main problem with it though is that the sole is too narrow. If you don't step perfectly straight you'll feel the edge of the sole under your foot, like your slipping off the edge a bit. Maybe that means it's too narrow for my foot, but I've never had to buy extra wide shoes so I consider my foot to be average width.

Got blister on my tendons (not on heel) after 2 hours. Look great just didn't work for me. Damn, I liked them too!

Cruzer PsycheI love these shoes! I think they run a bit large in terms of length, but are true to width (at least for Evolv shoes which tend to run a tad wide anyway). I had to return them for a 1/2 size smaller which actually seemed like a pretty big jump down in size, but because they are canvas they will stretch to be comfortable. I'd say if you want to wear them just as casual shoes with a sock, order 1/2 size up. If you want to wear them without socks, but not have your toes hit the front, order your true size. If you're actually hoping to climb in them and walk very little, order 1/2 size down. FYI though, they would be ok for some easy climbs and smearing, but not much else because they aren't stiff.

Axiom Rated:5 stars!

Evolv's designs include very sticky rubber. I chose the Axiom and found that the size 12 fits my 10.5 US sized foot. I can squeeze into an 11.5, but I prefer a comfortable fit. For friction or edging, these are some of the best rock shoes I've climbed in. I've climbed 3 big wall routes in Yosemite with my Axiom's. After 6 months of climbing, my Axiom's were stolen. Therefore I purchased my second set of Axioms I prefer the lacing system compared to velcro. I can get these shoes snug where I want them the lacing system. The style is great although it's hard to keep them clean. I'm an organizer for a 1200 member climbing group and I recommend the Evlov Axiom to everyone in my group.

Elektra Rated:5 stars!

I recently starting Bouldering (indoor rock climbing) this is a good starter shoe. The first wear irritated the back of my heel at first because these are worn without socks. After the first use I haven't had any issues. These shoes definitely feel weird, they are supposed to feel different but not hurt. They didn't hurt me at all. I wear a size 10 normally but 10.5 fit perfect. Your toe is supposed to reach the front of the shoe because you need to use your toes for climbing. If your toes slightly curl then that's normal. The velcro allows easy adjustment and removal especially after a hard climb!

These are true to size if you use the evolv chart (I used my EU size). Overall pretty comfortable, these are lighter and more flexible than any other approach shoe I've tried. The La Sportiva Mix shoe is comparable. A note re people complaining about marking soles: these are not "athletic" shoes, they are climbing approach shoes and use a very specific sticky rubber to keep traction on class 3-5 approach climbs. I can comfortably climb up to 5.8/5.9 in these. I like the heel loop to clip to a harness. Decent looking enough for me to wear to work and around town too.

With such a simplistic design, I think this gets overlooked as a quality approach shoe. Fits snugly and has a sticky-rubber sole making it capable of climbing/routesetting/gym use, and the heel folds down, very useful when hanging out between climbs outside. Stretches about half size as it is a slipper, so size down a little if you are using it as a performance approach shoe. Not ideal in snowy or wet conditions, but great in summer and in desert environments - think Red Rocks, Nevada or Joshua Tree approaches.
