    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices.

    Developed from the ground up by Chris Sharma, the evolv Shaman rock shoes incorporate an aggressive downturned shape and high-quality materials to meet your needs on steep routes.

    • Downturned shape features a roomy toe box to allow your big toes to stay bent in a position of power while you're climbing
    • Toe rands of varying thicknesses enhance durability in high-wear zones, such as the front of the toe, without being cumbersome
    • High-performance, 4.2mm TRAX XT-5 high-friction rubber soles stick tenaciously to rock
    • 3 rip-and-stick straps draw the arches of the shoes into your feet for an excellent fit
    • Flexible and durable synthetic suede uppers resist stretching and dry quickly
    • Full-length MX-P 1.5mm midsoles have medium stiffness for edging power on long face routes yet are flexible enough for smearing
    • Microfiber lining in the forefeet, cotton in the heels and leather on the footbeds limit stretching and offer great comfort
    • The evolv Shaman rock shoes are part of the Chris Sharma Signature Series

    evolv Shaman Rock Shoes is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sizing I wear a size 10.5 street shoe and ordered a size 10 Shaman so that they would fit tight. However, it's near impossible to squeeze my foot in. I would reccommend ordering per your actual shoe size as these don't allow much stretch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Amazing amazing shoe. I've always worn Miura's, and in my opinion the Miura's are still the best overall shoe. HOWEVER, I'm truly in love with this shoe. First, the fit is just beautiful. Make sure you size them to your street size. Pain level is comparable to the Miura. You'll be taking them off immediately after the route. Second, for climbing vertical to overhanging sport routes, this shoe is brilliant. I mean brilliant. Better than the Miura's, YES. If you're looking for a do everything shoe, its the wrong shoe. But, if you're looking to push into or get near to 12's and above (sport routes).... get these shoes. You'll fall in love with them... Also, props to REI for great customer service and speedy delivery!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sizing Advice I tested these out when Evolv had a demo day at my climbing gym. I've heard great things about them so I was excited to see how they perform. I wear a 10 in street shoes so I decided this was a good starting point. I couldn't even fit my foot into the shoe. The 10.5 was almost as bad, it wasn't until I put on the 11's that I was able to do any climbing. They were great on the wall once I got sized right but be warned that they are already sized small and designed aggressively so they'll feel extra small. Definitely a shoe to try on before purchasing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Months of climbing and still happy Thought these shoes would be uncomfortable based on their aggressive style. I have used these for months top roping and bouldering. I purchased these to replace my Sportiva Katana's which I loved. This is my first pair of Evolv shoes and I must say they are comfortable and allow me to get in those tiny cracks. The rubber sticks allowing me to smear with confidence. The heel is fully covered making heel hooking solid. As mentioned earlier sizing is off. This seems to be the case from manufacturer to manufacturer; Sportiva, Five Ten, Evlolv I am a 8.5 in Five Ten Moccasym and 9 in Sportiva. However with this shoe specifically I am a 11. Recommendation- Try them on in store.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Foot-gasum Before buying any shoe, I suggest trying on several of them in person; everyones feet are different, and shoes will fit everyone differently. However, that being said, out of all the shoes I tried on, these where the most comfortable. The 3 strap system does a great job at getting the perfect fit on my foot and its super easy to adjust as needed. These have serious edging power, and the smallest grain is enough for maximum traction. After climbing in these shoes, I don't think I'll ever buy a different brand.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from climb on toes for days!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sticky as.... as long as you commit :) more agressive than the evolv defy VTR's which i have had a couple of pairs of prior to this. great traction by comparison to the defy's, but a bit less feel. Happy with how they are working out for me, but they do take a bit of getting used to. The pressure on the last joint of big toe is pretty intense. fit is similar to the defy's, small heel cup and wide toe box, which suits my foot shape.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shoe of them all! This was my third pair of rock climbing shoes and i am extremly impressed! Ive used it on long 5.13 projects and on boulder problems and they work amazingly for both. I usually dont wear socks in my shoes, but when im working on bouldering, i will sometimes wear socks just to make my foot cram in a bit more for better power. I will definatly keep using these and buy another pair when these are worn out!
