Great aggressive shoe... and comfortableAfter my first trip to the gym, I nailed some routes that I had been struggling with. The stiff aggressive sole is great for edging on micro holds and definitely gave me more confidence in my footwork. Given that my last shoe was the 5.10 Coyote and not aggressive at all it's not surprising that these outperformed them, but the difference was truly night and day. The best part is these are pretty comfortable. I ended up going a half size up (10.5 to 11) since they didn't have my normal size, and that's also what Chris Sharma told me to do on YouTube. They are still quite snug and definitely do the job, though I think my regular size would have been perfect.

great for bouldering!all the stuff youve already heard: surprisingly comfy, edges amazingly... those are all true. i do, however get some dead space in the heel, but isnt limiting my ability to heel hook. toe hooking rubber works nicely, not as good as solutions of team five ten, but still really good. the velcro straps and split tongue make for easy on and off, a plus for gym climbing/ bouldering. i got mine a half size small from my street shoe and it was pretty darn tight, but they have since strecthed and molded to my foot. i'd say theyre a bit wider than the evolv predator, so the shamans fit me better for my wide ish feet

No better than my $85 5.10 Coyote shoes IMHO!I think these shoes are over rated d/t Sharma's name in climbing. Nice shoe - for sure - soles are super sticky - but I didn't find my climbing improved or was any better with these than my 5.10 Coyote's costing 1/2 the price these shoes did honestly. ,,,,Had I not worn mine once already I'd be returning them for a refund for sure.,,,,Just not worth all the fuss and noise that others seem to be making over them.,,,,Velcro is nice for easy 'get them on' and 'get them off' easily and quickly - however - that feature can be had in shoes on sale or costing much less IMHO!,,,,Bottom line - over rated. Buy if you are into keeping up with the latest and greatest gear or are a gear nut.,,,,

Awesome aggressive shoes, but beware of sizingThese shoes came highly recommended. I've been climbing for approximately 8 years, and I bought these shoes to replace a worn pair of 5.10's. Overall, they are a very attractive, functional shoe. They perform well on the wall, and can handle pretty much anything that you throw at them (from small edges to smearing). My footwork has improved exponentially according to my climbing partner. The heel cup really locks your foot in place, and the velcro straps provide a snug fit.
My only complaint is that THESE SHOES RUN SMALL. I ordered a half size up from my street shoe and they were still very snug. The 'love bump' really lock your toes into toe box, but if your index toe is longer than the big toe or one foot is slightly larger than the other (I have both problems) it can cause some serious discomfort! I would highly recommend that you try these shoes on in a store before you buy to see what size works best for you, and then find a deal on-line.
I have had the shoes for ~1 month now, and I've climbed in them 3-4 times a week at the local gym. They are slowly stretching out, but are still quite tight in the toe. When I first got them I could only wear them for ~10 min before my toes went numb. Now I can wear them for at least an hour before my toes start to hurt. I think these shoes would have been extremely comfortable if I had gone a full size up, but I do have some concerns that the heel would have been too loose after the initial break in period.

Work excellent on the smallest of chipsThese bad boys are tight, but not too tight. I had got the Primes in a full size down and could not walk in them. A half size was perfect. They are stretching nicely. The shoes climb great and are very aggressive. It feels like I need to put less pressure on my toes to stay on the holds. Also, they work excellent on the smallest of chips. I say they feel too narrow, that was when they were right out of the box and my little toe was crushed. They have since stretched a little to allow room for my littlest piggy.

Fits Like A Glove!I have found that Evolv shoes tend to fit my feet best out of any brand. I feel like I have a slightly wider than average foot. The Shamans feel like they were molded to fit my foot and they perform the best out any other shoe I have climbed in recently (Sportiva: Katana and Solution, Scarpa: boostic) My only complaint on the shoes is the color scheme but I sacrifice appearances for comfort and usability in all things climbing related.

Great aggressive shoeThis shoe is a great everyone i have let use them shares the same love that i do for them. very sticky shoe. i have used the tip of the toe to post my leg on a hole no larger than a nickle to support myself. i was impressed. they are comfterable when properly sized and you can go a little biggr than your usual shoe i can fit into a 9.5 and i wear my shamans at an 11 same as my running shoes i could have probably gone 11.5

Go ahead, look up a discount code type it in and get the best steal of a freakin' deal.I have a couple friends who use these at the gym, and they seemed really pleased with them, my old shoes (5.10 coyote lace ups) were worn out and limiting my climbing. So I was going to buy the 5.10 Rouges. BUT THEN I came across this deal and jumped on it. I'll be waiting for my pair to arrive but so far my friends are doing an impressive job. I will write a better review once I get mine. now gimme my points moosejaw.
