Product Description

Designed with serious climbers in mind, the Shaman from Evolv stands ready to take you to new heights. With its big toe "knuckle box" and "love bump" midsole, your big toe stays in a position of power for premium edging and grabbing. By combining materials in the lining, you get non-stretch performance in the cotton heel and added feel from the leather forefoot.

The ultimate performance climbing shoe developed from the ground up by Chris Sharma ideal for hard sport climbing and bouldering on steep terrain. The Shaman 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.

The toes edge and hold small features well.

Will edit this review once I get some time climbing in these although I see most feedback has already been pretty positive!

This makes them less damaging to your feet and more comfortable than any other downturned shoe.

Alright, had to return size 11 of these (Street shoe size) and go a 1/2 size larger to 11.5, I had seen others who have had to go a full size larger...Got these today and they are right on the button, snug but not painful or terribly uncomfortable. (Also got a great deal from Amazon Warehouse!!!!) Will edit this review once I get some time climbing in these although I see most feedback has already been pretty positive!

I recently purchased the special edition evolv Shamans... The Rasta Shamans... Great shoe, really put power to your feet. There have been some sends that were giving me trouble, mostly due to loss of footing, was able to send no problem with these on. The only trick with these is making sure to get the right size ... my street shoe ranges from 10 to 11 depending on brand and shoe with... I have a few pairs of Evolv that I have comfortably went with 11 in, the Shamans I tried the old stand by of a size drop... TOO TIGHT... it is a narrower shoe... bumped up a half size to a 10.5... great...If at all possible try these on in multiple sizes... if not do the order try on and return thing... REMEMBER these are synthetics so no stretching... the feel of it when you first put it on is the feel you will have till they are worth out and time for a new pair... I also think this goes without saying but if you are going for an aggressive shoe like this that they will be mildly uncomfortable... not something for leaving on all day..

This is my second pair of rock climbing shoes, and my first set of aggressive shoes. I wanted to give myself a good amount of time before writing a review so that I could definitely state what I like and where they could improve. I have wide feet. So these shoes are initially much more comfortable than some other brands that run skinny. Additionally, the "sweet spot" (a little dimple in the toe box) relieves some of the pressure from your toes being jammed in to a small space. My toes are not nearly as uncomfortable after a few hours climbing as they were after even a few minutes test-climbing in La Sportivas. You will see a marked improvement in your game when you start in these shoes. The edging is strong, and stays that way after heavy use. I don't really have any concern with my foot staying where I put it.

The only area I see for improvement is the heel. It takes a bit of getting used to. The idea behind the heel design was to use the rim of the shoe to push in to your achilles tendon, forcing the back of your heel into the heel pocket. Good in theory, but on a sharp heel hook, I still get some air, which causes the rubber to bunch ever-so-slightly, and effects my movement. I think this would be the perfect shoe if that heel issue was resolved.

I have been climbing with these shoes for a month or so and I have had no problems with them. They seem to be able to handle a variety of climbing, from slabby stuff to tiny holds.

The lovebump is great, and a bit strange when you first put them on. You just have to wiggle your foot a little and then it finds the right position.

I took other reviewers advice and got 1/2 size up from my street shoe size and it is perfect. I don't advice trying to size down for these, they are not designed to do that.

The tongue is very comfortable as well, which is great because you don't have any pain coming from the top of the shoe like you do with some climbing shoes.
Overall I highly recommed these, and I have bought a few spare pairs in case they decide to change design like companies love to do and ruin it for everyone.

Update 3-13-2014:
Still going strong. They haven't come apart at all except for one small spot of rubber that has broken right by the toe-bend/velcro strap intersection; standing in camber shoes will wrinkle the toe area and cause the cracking. I usually avoid standing in them too long for that reason. They feel like well worn gloves, perfect on me now. The heel fit issue I had at first is all but gone. I still have plenty of rubber, no signs of holes coming yet. I still use the cedar bags and occasional washing (twice a year)to stave of the bacterial infestations. They are not as super-new-fresh as they used to be, but they are far from repulsive or disgusting. Again, I highly recommend using those cedar bags.

I'm wanting to add another more aggressive shoe to my quiver... maybe some La Sportiva Solutions or Five Ten Teams... then again, these are so comfortable and versatile that getting another pair isn't high on my list. I'm curious to see the next evolution of this shoe from Sharma.

Update 4-4-12:
Shoes have been holding strong. When they get sweaty, they dry out pretty quick and seem to resist stinking if they are properly aired out afterward. These shoes thus far have remained smelling like fresh leather which they are lined with. I recommend using cedar chip insert bags in the shoes after climbing to help fend off odor and help absorb moisture. Look them up here on Amazon.

I had a few scant instances on flat walls that showed a bit of slippage from these shoes on tiny holds. This is only a by-product camber shoes will suffer from as they are designed for inclined surfaces. My Anasazis handle flat walls just a tad better. This may be obvious to many, but I thought I'd point that out.
