Evo great for sport or trad 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: skinnyclimber, 2009-01-08

I use these (sized a bit smaller) for sport climbing and (sized 1/2 size larger) for long multipitch. They are the most aggressive shoe I have owned, so I can't compare them to any more aggressive models. They are awesome for sport, I have climbed many 5.11's and even a steep 5.12. Sized larger they are great for multi-pitch. They do start to hurt a bit after many pitches, but because they are velcro, I just take them off and clip them to the anchor. I feel it's worth it because they edge well on small things, and when I'm trad climbing I start to get a little scared when I have to step on a crappy little thing and I'm way above my last piece. I only gave four out of five stars because they don't make me magically climb 5.14's off the couch. Still waiting for that 5 star shoe!!!!
