From the slabby boulders at Joshua Tree to the multipitches at Red Rocks, the Evolv Axiom Climbing Shoe excels on practically any trad route you throw it on. A flat and low profile with a standard asymmetric curvature makes this shoe excellent on face climbs, slabby sections, and cracks. Leather encompasses the majority of the shoe for comfort and breathability, and synthetic leather above the arch and heel offers more support for steeper sections. Evolv added 3/4 speed laces for easy on and off in between pitches, and the unique tongue lock system positions the tongue perfectly every time you put it on. Microfiber lines the front half of the Axiom for extra comfort and support, which you appreciate on long days on big walls. Evolv integrated an MX-P midsole in size 9 shoes and up in order to keep the shoe sturdy and rigid enough for vertical face climbs. A VTR rand in the toe increases the shoe's longevity, and an extra rand in the arch increases the tension across your foot for a sturdy, stiff last that helps you work through technical edges with ease. And the Trax rubber sole offers the high friction you'd expect out of Evolv's proprietary rubber.
