Show Description

An all-around shoe that redefines what an entry-level model can do. The low asymmetry and neutral profile fit comfortably right out of the box, while still providing edging power and sensitivity you'd expect from a high-end shoe.

  • Leather upper molds to your foot for all-day comfort.
  • Lace closure can be adjusted for comfort or performance.
  • Variable thickness rand puts durability and sensitivity where you want it.
  • Supportive full-length midsole.
  • Thick Trax SAS rubber is super sticky.
  • Evolv suggests sizing the same as your street shoe size.

Ideal for
  • Indoor climbing
  • Sport and toprope climbing
  • Bouldering

A neutral shoe suits long routes and cracks. Moderate shoes allow precision and good edging. Aggressive shoes are downturned and tensioned, for power to the toe on steep or overhanging routes.


Highly asymmetric shoes allow more precision and focused power. Symmetrical shoes are more comfortable for all-around climbing.


Stiffness is provided by the type of sole and the tensioning system. Softer shoes allow more precision. Supportive shoes prevent fatigue.
