Evolv's mad scientists melted down lightning bolts, kryptonite, pure attitude, and locks of Chris Sharma's hair to create the mold for the Shaman Climbing Shoe. At a top secret unveiling, several people were carried away on stretchers after fainting at the sight of the Shaman's revolutionary and aggressive profile. Built with input from the master himself, this shoe features a love bump under the toe to eliminate deadspace and a heel counter for structure and tension. Throw in Evolv's proprietary Trax XT high-friction rubber and the result is a shoe that's so advanced, it can even help you find features in drywall.

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 Shaman climbing shoe from Evolv incorporates several key design elements that work synergistically to perform at the highest level: The big toe knuckle box and love bump midsole keeps the big toe in a position of power to obtain maximum strength for edging and grabbing; the tensioned heel and arch rand eliminates dead space in the arch for secure heel hooks and transfers power to the toes; the multi pattern lining (leather forefoot liner for increased sensitivity and feel, cotton heel for non-stretch performance), give the best feel and function for demanding climbs.
