/ Evolv Climbing shoes
Does anyone know what the fit of the Evolv boots are all similarly sized for instance if I had a pair of Defy's size 9 would I fit into Shamen's size 9 etc?
Is there no way for you to try them on?
My experience is that Defys and Bandits fit me in the same size, but the really aggressive toe-down ones (Talon maybe?) were far too small and I sold them.
So I would do your best to try them on.
For me, i am a street shoe 7.5 and my Shamans are 7.5.
There was a pair came up for sale so was wondering and couldn't try them on - I thout they might be a bit tighter so probably give them a miss. Cheers for the advice .
I would say bandits are a quarter size tighter than defys, and about similar to shamans, though the aggressive profile, downturn and sharper toe may make them feel smaller. If you cant get the same size on in shamans as you can bandits, find another shoe (e.g. instincts, arrowheads e.t.c)
