Here's what other sites are saying:
The Capitan is the sticky lugged sole, semi-mid cut approach shoe that you need when hiking around the Valley and want comfort and support. They are perfect to use when wearing a light to mid-weight pack and moving fast and need good traction on rock, scree, and dirt. The gusseted tongue keeps the dirt out and the mesh tongue will keep your feet breathing. We equipped it with a rubber toe rand and heel patch for protecting the nubuck upper.
Minimalist approach kicks might be just fine for a quick out-'n-back jaunt to a nearby slab. But when getting to promised land requires a little more gear, a bit more determination, and a bigger investment of time, reach for the Evolv Captain Shoe to take you there and back safely and in total comfort.
When your climbing destination isn't readily accessible, you need a shoe that can get you there. The Captain from Evolv is an approach style shoe for rugged terrain and scrambling. Durable leather uppers with rubber toe and heel rands offer plenty of protection. A full shank gives you the stiffness and stability you need to haul all your gear in and the soft TRAX rubber outsole grips on any surface.
