The Evolv Shaman is the most advanced, highest-performance climbing shoe that Evolv has ever released, designed from scratch by Chris Sharma. It fits like a glove, and is the most comfortable down-turned climbing shoe we've ever tried. Imagine: a no-compromises, aggressive, technical climbing shoe that doesn't feel like a torture device!

Built on a new last, with a strong downward camber and asymmetrical profile, the Evolv Shaman is perfect for hardcore sport climbing and bouldering steep terrain. The “knuckle box” distributes weight across your big toe, and the "love bump" midsole keeps that toe in a position of power for edging while also helping these shoes retain their downturned shape. The tensioned heel and arch rand eliminate dead space in the arch, transferring even more power to the toes, and a heel counter provides additional tension for secure heel hooks. Triple velcro straps keep the arch from flattening out on you.

The guys at Evolv have worked tirelessly with Chris Sharma on this shoe, tweaking and modifying prototypes repeatedly until they were absolutely perfect, and the Evolv Shaman is a worthy result. Even Sharma's girlfriend is impressed!

The guys at Evolv worked relentlessly with Chris Sharma on this shoe, tweaking and modifying the prototypes repeatedly until they were just right, and the result is the Evolv Shaman. Part of Evolv’s Sharma Signature Series, this climbing shoe wouldn’t have Chris Sharma’s name on it if it wasn’t awesome..."

          Comments about Evolv Shaman Climbing Shoe:

          I use these shoes on the rock both bouldering and sport routes. I've worn katanas, predators, and defy's (gym shoes).

          If you're looking for comfort on a multi-pitch maybe these aren't for you. But if you're looking to stay on the rock whether slab or an over hang the arch and toe box are phenomenal. I thought the pointed toe would cause smearing to be a struggle but it actually makes it easier.

          BUT, you have to get used to the different feel of the pecuilar approach to being an aggressive shoe. The shaman really excels if you are wearing it correctly. I could also see how if you have morton's toe or longer toes in general you could have problems with the toe box. The shoe is synthetic and will stretch very little. It is also hard to resole these shoes because of the rubber's shape and the rands.

          If you're ready for the next step definitely look into these. Never jump into a pair of shoes because of a review though, find a store and try them on. I would suggest going a half size down because they will form to your feet. It's like making a best friend.

            Comments about Evolv Shaman Climbing Shoe:

            I followed the advise from past reviewers and bought a half size down from my street shoe. These 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.

              Comments about Evolv Shaman Climbing Shoe:

              I've been climbing with the Shaman since it came out - nearly a year. I've projected really thin, slightly slabby limestone sport routes in these, and climbed very overhanging boulder problems as well. In these ~10 months, I've used The Shaman for bouldering (sandstone in Joe's, Font; granite in Bishop, Montana) and for sport climbing (dolomite in Ten Sleep, limestone in Spain, granite in Sweden and Norway) - and I've been increasingly more pleased with them wherever I take them. As a lot of people say, the shoe starts rather stiff (but not *that* stiff). However it breaks in extremely nicely, and has an incredibly long life. With its leather lining, the shoe is very comfortable against the skin. And, as by design, the shoe still performs even when fitted slightly toward the large size. The shoe generally fits the foot well, not putting strange pressure points on the foot (ball, toes, heel), so you can climb without feeling like you're deforming your foot. I love this shoe.

              Comments about Evolv Shaman Climbing Shoe:

              I bought these shoes half a size down from my usual street shoe size. At first I didn't think this was going to work out. I could barely get the left shoe on and had to take them of after every climb. After two weeks of climbing indoors and outdoors, the shoes have slightly broken in and fit perfect.
              The Shamans are amazing but not so great for slab. I brought them to Joshua Tree and ended up using my 5.10's the entire time I was there.
              For the price these shoes are amazing. You will move up a grade when you start climbing in these!

                i am an avid bouldering fanatic and sport climber. The shamans are sick!!! i have a really wide foot and i find that only evolvs have a toe box that can fit my fat hawaiian feet. The love bump is awesome it puts my toes in the right position for power but still being comfortable. i went up a .5 size from regular climbing shoe and its like feet are in heaven! I really wish it came in a lace-up.

                  Great for overhanging climbs. The size of the shoe is true. The box of the shoe fits my foot but the heel is just a little to wide. Good shoe for edging and strong heel hooks. I would buy this shoe again.
