I love them. I got them a size smaller than normal and they feel like they're supposed to. The rubber sticks to everything and makes it easier to use foot chips and small crevices to complete routes. They'll feel better once my toe stops hurting too. If you want to be aggressive, they're a great sta... Read More

    Got these to replace my old pair and since I am only climbing indoors now wanted a pair of slip-ons. Original order was too small. Exchanged for half size bigger (normal shoe size). Still a bit jammed but hope they will break in after a few more sessions. Otherwise happy with them!

    This is my first pair of Evolvs ever. I ordered size 9, which is ½ size bigger than my Scarpas or LaSportivas, just in case. However, I couldn't slide my foot in. These shoes are 3 sizes too small. According to the tag, they should be 27cm long but I measured those 23.5 cm only! Evolv quality control: shame on you! I gave the shoes to my daughter.

    This shoe is extreme and super uncomfortable. I had to order a size bigger and it was still to small. [...] This review is solely based on trying on a size that was to small. If you like super tight and don't mind pain than these shoes are for you.
