Comments about Evolv Nexxo Climbing Shoe (Men's):
These have been a long time coming from Evolv, and I'm pretty psyched that they took the time to make them very solid before release.
This is one of the most fun aggressive climbing shoes I've worn; however, it definitely takes a few climbing sessions to allow the shoe to adapt to the foot before they feel comfortable. I sized them the same as I size most performance shoes (1/2 size down from running shoe size) and while they felt very tight initially, after a few good sessions they have broken in to slide on easily while maintaining a solid downturned position.
They point directly into holds and pockets and stay. Heel-hooks and toe-hooks are exact, with a lot of rubber to gain purchase from several positions. Despite being a "soft" shoe, they still have strong edging capabilities to be used on difficult vertical climbing. This is also definitely my favorite indoor shoe for training now as well. My main criticism would be the thickness of the rubber out-of-box, but it does add to the longevity of the shoe.
For reference - I've climbed for over 10 years and work as the routesetting director at a climbing gym. I have been using these on climbs up to hard 5.13 sport and V10 bouldering.
- Feels half size too small
- Feels true to width
