Evolv Shaman

Size: UK 6

The Evolv Shaman is a top-end, high-performance climbing shoe, offering comfort on steep boulder problems and sport routes.

Heavily downturned yet engineered for both comfort and performance, the Evolv Shaman offers an improved fit and now comes with even more toe rubber for toe hooking and an inset front strap for better medial side toe scumming. With a larger knuckle box, split tongue and moulded VTR with thinner rubber in selected places to reduce hot spots, there is a visible emphasis on comfort in the new design. This version of the Shaman is perhaps a little more generous (or perhaps just more forgiving), in terms of sizing than its predecessor and you may want to drop half a size from whatever you took in the original Shaman.

The Shaman velcro has a slightly softer midsole than the Shaman Lace allowing for a little more flex making it more suited to overhanging gymnastic and steep routes

    I am a long time user of Scarpa footwear and usually wore a 41.5. However, the slow development of Morton's Neuroma in both feet sent me on a hunt for shoes with a different fit that would be wearable and not trigger the agonising pain in my feet. This is probably the result of 50 years of various climbing shoes - not just Scarpa) The shaman have proved really good - I have had to size up though and wear a 43 in the velcro and a 43.5 in the lace. While that's a massive jump, the shoes are still pretty tight. Both the velcro and the lace really hug my foot and there's no dead space. I think I have a wide foot. Also while the shoes compress your toes they aren't bunched and they are held in position by the 'love bump' The toe/knuckle box is generous, both my big toe nails and toe joints aren't stressed.

    This should impact on performance I hear you say...... I do Trad, Sport and Boulder and the shoes have performed really well across all the disciplines. My feet feel locked in, footwork is confident, edging is good, the toe works well in pockets and the heel is deep, fits well and feels very secure when hooking.

    Build quality may be a weakness, I've had one pair where the rubber around the heel started to separate, but other than that they've been pretty durable. All in all I think they are an excellent shoe.
