SPECIFICATIONS of the Evolv Women's Elektra Lace Climbing Shoe
I just started getting into climbing a few months ago and realized pretty quickly that I loved it and was going to stick with it and therefore would need shoes asap. I tried on several other styles in other brands but the Elektra fit the best. I tried on a pair of velcro slip-ons in the store but ordered the lace-ups online because I have narrow feet and wanted to get a good tight fit. I wear a size 8.5 in normal shoes and got a 9 in these and the fit is perfect. Snug, but not uncomfortable. I don't have a ton of experience obviously so not a whole lot to compare it to, but I have noticed a huge level of improvement since I started climbing in these so it's definitely making a difference. All in all, great beginner shoe so far!
This is a pretty good shoe, it is the lace up to the more popular velcro shoe common amongst beginners. This shoe is good for those looking for a value purchase, or beginners who should not buy expensive shoes because until their footwork won't destroy the shoe in 2 months.
I use this pair of shoes for training on the college wall. They are really comfortable since they aren´t agressive at all. The laces let you tight them as much as you like. Remember this ones are synthetic and they´ll not break in so try them on before buying and make sure you like the fit since the beginning. My shoe size is W 8, and got them in W 7. The only con is that as they are not from leather I prefer to take them off several times while training to avoid odor. Either way, this is a great shoe for a beginner climber or training pair.
