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.
Developed from the ground up by Chris Sharma, the evolv Shaman rock shoes incorporate an aggressive downturned shape and high-quality materials to meet your needs on steep routes.
Chris Sharma was instrumental in the design of the Evolv Shaman and its already won the Editor's Choice awards from both Climbing and Urban Climber magazines. A combination of exclusive technologies, unique materials, and a radical new last make this an ultra high performance shoe with an amazing level of comfort. Microfiber lining in the forefoot for comfort and durability The ''Love Bump'' midsole puts your forefoot in a comfortable position of power and fills in the dead space behind your toes The ''Knuckle Box'' works in combination with the ''Love Bump'' to provide room for your big toe knuckle to stay in a position of power A third strap closure for added security and to create a sock like fit through the arch of your foot
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.
