Jam packed with every bit of tech Evolv could muster and designed in close collaboration between Evolv's R&D team and top athletes, such as Daniel Woods, the Evolv Phantom climbing shoe is the pinnacle of performance within the brand's range.

Whilst the Phantom incorporates a multitude of design technologies, perhaps the most interesting is that of the NEOFLEX knuckle box, which features a neoprene laminate; providing two-way stretch and in turn allowing the toe box to expand when flexed and engaged with the rock, then rapidly reshape when the pressure is realised. This means there is bags of power and foothold with a minimum of pressure on the toes, and this in spite of its radical down-turned last and a full-coverage of rubber on the toe box upper.

Using Evolv's TPS+ (Tension Power System Plus) technology, (similar to La Sportiva's P3 power Platform), the Phantom will maintain its shape and profile throughout its lifespan. The midsole also uses an AVT (Abridged Variable Thickness) to give you more toe sensitivity whilst not compromising on support. The 6 point, single pull, closure allows for quick and easy adjustment to fit with excellent security and the addition of D rings add to durability. Finally, the heel is  the most sensitive in the Evolv range, dubbed Dark Spine S, this is the combination of the Dark Spine midsole with a thinner 2mm heel outsole making it excellent for hard heel hooks and foot cams.

    The phantoms are a cracking pair of incredibly aggressive bouldering shoes, with pretty much every inch being solid rubber. Forget the rest of the reviews on here about sizing, I'm a UK 10 street and decided to go for this size as a first try, and I seriously couldn't fit into anything smaller. Very stiff so probably won't stretch much. If you're wanting something comfier go a half size above street, but then there's no point having such an aggressive shoe. The 6 point velcro system works brilliantly and keeps all parts of the shoe tight on the foot. No heel slippage at all for me. The only issue I have is the closure tab that you pull the shoe tight with (pictured). It seems very weakly attached to the white 'cord' via some stitching, so I can see the tab breaking off as a potential weak point. Just make sure to tighten by pulling the white cord, not the tab, then velcro the tab down. Other than that their an awesome shoe (chose these over the booster, glad I did), and I'd recommend.
