The Evolv Astroman Climbing Shoe's name implies sub-orbital excellence, and this shoe delivers. Although we don't actually recommend using this shoe in space, we trust that the input of trad climbing stars Peter Croft and Matt Segal means this mid-top shoe can handle any traditional Earth-based route you throw at it. The Astroman proves that you can still have ankle protection while maintaining mobility, and a comfy microfiber lining complements a rugged leather upper for multi-season durability.

Found yourself between a rock and a hard place? Make climbing out easy breezy with the Astroman from EVOLV®.
Designed in collaboration with Peter Croft and Matt Sagel.
Durable nubuck leather upper.
Asymmetrical lace design.
Thin profile design for better placement in small cracks.
Mid-high cut at ankle for added protection.

The Astroman is an ultimate high-end, all day adventure multi-pitch trad shoe. A flat, low profile aids in your ability to jam into thin cracks and the wide means even high-volume feet will not feel crushed. Keep in mind this means that these shoes fit true to your street shoe size. They have high, durable, lined-leather uppers for increased foot and ankle protection on long crack climbs. The Astroman is stiff enough for edging and wearable enough for all-day routes. The Astroman will keep your feet from getting tired even when you are trad climbing all day. 

Best Used For : Smearing or slab climbs

Also Suitable For : All Around - These shoes will be good for mostly all angles of climbing, but are more oriented towards vertical and less than vertical terrain.

Evolv Astroman Reviews:


Stiff, comfier last, great lacing system, ankle protection. Great shoe for all day climbing, I sized them a touch tighter so i can stand on granite dime edges with them, but the last is for comfier orientation of the toes, not as crammed tight. For comparison, they felt as easy to get on as my .5 size larger geshido lace ups. I am anticipating a fair amount of stretch because they are all leather. I will update this as I wear them more and more and keep you posted, but this is my first impressions.

waited a long time for these to finally be out. Couldn't be happier with the fit and performance. all day comfort, sized my street shoe size. Perfect for trad climbing and long routes. Sticky and made really well.
