The Evolv Pontas Lace Climbing Shoe is a much stiffer version of the Pontas Velcro. The Pontas Lace is a sporty outdoor shoe that performs brilliantly at edging. With the added rand rubber around the toe box, it can also be used as a more technical traditional climbing shoe.FEATURES- 1 1/2 midsole, very stiff precision edging shoe- Speed lacing system- Narrow heel that is compatible with lower volume feet
When you turn over rock shoe design to one of the best climbers in the world, you've gotta figure you're going to get a great shoe like the Pontas Lace-Up rock shoe from Evolv. Designed by Chris Sharma, this shoe's as tough as it gets with 1 and 1/2 midsoles, a tough, friction-rubber outsole, and high rand to keep you scumming and hooking in comfort.

After receiving rave reviews for Chris Sharma's signature series Pontas Climbing Shoe, Evolv decided to release a lace-up version to provide you with even more precision edging performance. The stretch-resistant Synthratek synthetic upper ensures an out-of-the-box fit with minimal break-in time, so you can start sending your projects immediately. Ultra-sticky TRAX XT-5 rubber glues your feet to desperate smears on anything from horrendous boulder problems to rope-stretch sport climbs.
The Evolv Pontas Lace-up is a precision edging master due to the design. It is equipped with a full mid sole and extra half mid sole for added support and stiffness while still offering a glove like fit in the forefoot and heel. Second in the Chris Sharma Signature Series of shoes.
