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.
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.

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. Downturned shape features a roomy toe box to allow your big toes to stay bent in a position of power while you're climbing. Toe rands of varying thicknesses enhance durability in high-wear zones, such as the front of the toe, without being cumbersome. High-performance, 4.2mm TRAX XT-5 high-friction rubber soles stick tenaciously to rock. 3 rip-and-stick straps draw the arches of the shoes into your feet for an excellent fit. Flexible and durable synthetic suede uppers resist stretching and dry quickly. Full-length MX-P 1.5mm midsoles have medium stiffness for edging power on long face routes yet are flexible enough for smearing. Microfiber lining in the forefeet, cotton in the heels and leather on the footbeds limit stretching and offer great comfort. The evolv Shaman rock shoes are part of the Chris Sharma Signature Series.
