Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around shoe, very durable This was my first climbing shoe and it was great. Very comfortable, good edging, good heel, and the rubber on the bottom gets great fiction for smearing. I used them indoor and outdoor, and have no complaints about their performance. My only complaint would be the smell... I'm pretty sure those shoes were the worst smelling thing I have ever owned. I got about 8 months of pretty regular (3 to 5 times a week) climbing out of them, but now theres a hole through the toe. 8 months is very good for a climbing shoe, so they are definitely very durable. I would recommend this shoe to beginners or anyone climbing routes with a rating under 5.11 or V4.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good enough for gym climbing, but funky... I wore these for a couple of months, and in that time I found a couple of things I *hated* about them. 1) they are funky as hell. If you don't lysol them, they get pretty crazy pretty quickly. This is not a problem with my Mad Rock Phoenix's. 2) Not sure what is going on with the heel- it feels like it fits ok, but after a few routes, my right heel is *screaming*. Strange, because that *never* happens with my Phoenix's.,,,,That said, they're good enough for some bouldering and stuff in the gym. It's nice to be able to slap em on instead of taking the time to set the laces and tie 'em up, but there are a ton of other velcro shoes out there.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Shoe for Beginners This shoe is, well, frankly unimpressive. It's cheap, which is why I bought it as my first pair of climbing shoes. It's also comfortable, which is really nice, but it's not spectacular to climb in. The sole is very bendable, which is harder on your foot and calf muscles than some of the sturdier shoes. Also beware, this shoe will smell awful if you don't let it air out after every climb, and even then it won't be pleasant. Also be warned that Evolvs run smaller than other brands, and don't stretch since they're synthetic. All in all it's a fine shoe for a beginner who doesn't want to drop piles of cash, but nothing special.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Entry Level Shoes I had these shoes for almost a year before the toes started to blow out. I would say that is pretty good considering they saw gym climbing close to 4 days a week as well as close to 40 days outdoor climbing. Not the fanciest shoe or the stickiest rubber but great pair to learn in. I think I went a 1/2 size down from street shoes and these shoes did not stretch much so they fit the same they did in the store. ,,,,One downside to them, and I heard it from everyone who owned a pair, they make your feet sweat quickly. So that means they begin to smell quickly. If you are like me and don't care how bad you smell than no big deal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect first time shoes This was the first pair of shoes I bought. I tried them out at a local shop in sizes 11.5 and 12.5, since they didn't have 12's in: I ordered it from here. Now I wish that I would've gone for the 11.5, since the 12's (for me) give a little to much space. So, I think they run a little far from each other form each .5 size...,,As said before; the Odor becomes horrible after a while. I've been using mine for about 8 weeks now, and even after letting them breathe for a week - they smell.,,But they work good for me, with good grip, and nice cut on the toes for solid stance.,,Good allround, first time shoe! And I like the price

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoe This shoe has been more than adequate for my gym usage and some outdoor climbing. I feel like it really excels outdoors. My shoe size is 9.5-10 and I have a pair of size 9's, which fit pretty tight. If I had to do it all over again i'd go with 9.5. This model also had the eco-rubber on the bottom. Not sure if this is a different mix than the previous years, but it felt slightly stickier. Shoes are okay for heel hooking, though even with my incredibly small shoes (relative to my feet) there is still some dead space on the sides of the heel. Let it be known i've had no pop-offs while hooking either, so I guess the shoes are "okay" for hooking. IMO best shoe under $80.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good beginning shoe A couple of my friends have this shoe and I've heard mixed reviews. Both of my friends started climbing in the last year or so. One of them really loves these shoes and has no complaints. The other friend hates them. He says that they don't fit very tightly and aren't very good at small foot holds. The best thing about the shoe is that they are cheap. Its a great shoe for beginning climbers. My friend's shoes have started to fall apart a little around the toe, which isn't a big deal. If you are just getting into climbing, I would recommend buying this shoe. Your first pair of shoes tend to get destroyed quickly anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Update From Evolv This shoe is commonly accepted as Evolv's beginner's shoe. It has taken beginning climbers by storm and provided competition to other climbing company's beginner shoes. In this update, Evolv reinforced the Velcro straps making then less susceptible to wear. Another improvement to the strap area is by providing stronger metal "lace holes" in which the straps feed through. The material used in this shoe does not stretch! Which is a plus because over the lifetime of the shoe you want it to fit as tight as possible. Evolv has also added more rubber to the top and bottom of the toe area, which increases the lifetime of the shoe. Overall, Evolv has done a fantastic job renovating this shoe.
