Shoes too agressive?

I've only been climbing for several months and have been doing so in a pair of Sportive Tarantulas. Although might have bough a size too large .
Not looking to get a new pair of shoes just yet but was recently killing time in one of the very few stores near me that stock climbing shoes and tried on a bunch of Evolvs.

I tried on the Shamans, Primes, Geshido and Pontas II - they all fit very well. The Evolv shoes seem to suit my wide feet more so than other brands. But I was wondering, in particular the Shamans, would buying such an aggressive shoe be doing myself a disfavour? Seeing as how I'm still starting off - and would my next shoe be better being something more moderately aggressive, like the Pontas or Prime?

I've gravitated towards bouldering at my local gym because I'm often without a belay partner and its always nice to chat to the more experienced climbers in that section. But I've been outdoor a few times and have noticed on the steeper climbs my feet don't feel very solid on the tinier holds. But that might also be to do with my technique.

Also looking on the Evolv site - is there a major difference between down turned and down cambered?
