Designed by Chris Sharma, a man who probably spends more time "walking vertical" then horizontal, and combining several exclusive technologies the Evolv Shaman is for those discerning climbers looking to take it to a whole new level. The "Love Bump" midsole fills unsupported space behind the toes and puts your forefoot in a position of stabilized power. The big toe "knuckle box" gives needed working room allowing it to stay in a strong position. Combine these two innovations with a dead space eliminating sock-like fit and what do you get? You get everything you've been looking for. You get better positioning, better gripping, better powerï¿½ A better climb. Winner of the Editor's Choice award form both Climbing and Urban Climber magazines, these shoes make their home in that highly sought after, but rarely attained country where comfort and extraordinary performance cross paths. Make it your home too.
