Men's Evolv Climbing Shoes
The world's 1st Chris Sharma signature model men's rock climbing shoe, The Evolv Pontas is here!
Based on Chris' climbing expertise and design ideas, Evolv created this climbing shoe for him which he used to send his project "Es Pontas", his deep-water solo project route in Mallorca, Spain. It is a wildly overhanging route that is 65 ft long and includes a challenging, 7-foot dyno that is 35 feet above the sea and ends with a powerful and technical finish.
This all-around high performance rock climbing shoe fuses precision, power, and responsiveness in an excellent glove-like fit. The heel is one of the best of Evolv's climbing shoes and fits securely from base of the heel to the achilles without discomfort and deadspace.
These Evolv rock shoes are equipped with an extended toe rand that is functional for toe-hooking without feeling excessive and the tri-grooves relieve pressure off the big toe. The 3/4 length semi stiff midsole provides the ideal balance of edging power and responsiveness from toe through the arch.
The PONTAS will inspire confidence on technical climbs with micro-edges, steep climbing and precise footwork requiring moves as a outstanding overall performance shoe.
"TRAX rubber has the perfect blend of stickiness and durability for extreme climbing of all types. Whether I am on a granite slab or on an overhanging limestone sport route, I have total confidence in every foot placement with TRAX rubber." Chris Sharma
