Evolv Demorto Climbing Shoe -
The Evolv Demorto is hands down the best Symmetrical toe profile performance shoe on the market. Evolv created the Demorto based on the requests from climbers who desired a symmetrical toe profile high performance shoe but were frustrated that almost all of the symmetrical shoes currently available were entry level shoes. Anyone with Morton?s foot (longer 2nd toe) or climbers who prefer a more symmetrical toe box will love this shoe. The molded TRAX XT-5 outsole was engineered to have variable thickness gradients of the sole to conform to the foot and provide perfect anatomical support and sensitivity where needed. The molded sole is thinner in the arch section for better arch fit and ridged and thicker in the heel section for mild cushioning and the full length midsole underneath enhances edging power.


  • Padded, perforated tongue for increased comfort

Support and Cushioning:

  • Medium stiffness for edging and jamming support


  • Breathable mesh tongue with lace pocket
  • Breathable tongue and perforated upper to keep cool.


  • Unlined synthetic upper for limited stretch


  • Speed lacing lets you in and out quickly and easily
  • Super sticky Trax XT-5 rubber for excellent performance
Evolv continues its commitment to quality with the Demorto Climbing Shoe. Thanks to a symmetrical build, rock gurus with longer second toes won't find themselves weeping at a nubby crux. Super sticky Trax XT-5 rubber sticks to just about everything, and thick heel ridges add some hooking power for your more acrobatic maneuvers.


The Demorto is designed with a symmetric toe profile and is great for easy to moderate crack and face climbing, with a comfortable all day feel.

Al's Sports
Newly redesigned for 2011, the Demorto retains its status as the ultimate performance trad shoe that provides both comfort and an excellent fit.

Evolv Demorto Climbing Shoe Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

I'm just getting used to the shoes and they exceed my skill level, and have done everything I've asked. I'm a nube, without a climbing store close so I ordered based on reviews. I ended up having to send these back twice to get the right size. I wear a 9.5-10 in most everything, but ended up with a 10.5 and they are still perfectly tight. This would have been a major problem with many outfits, but backcountry.com kept send them out and paying the whole way (2nd Day Air 3 times for outbound and UPS ground twice for returns)
The shoes are great, but are made better by a company with top end customer servicve.

in 38 years of slabbing these are the best out of the box shoes i've ever owned. the midsole is stiff enough for support without killing sensitivity, the rubber is sticky enough without balling up grit under the edges and the toe box is spot on. they are precise and inspiring. wish i'd had them 20 years ago when i could still climb 5.12, but for feet beat with many hours of standing on tiny things these shoes are fantastic.

I climbed for the first time at the Gunks with Eastern Mountain Sports. They put me in the right size shoes but they absolutely killed my feet. These Demorto Shoes by Evolv are great. They give me the extra room I needed and perform wonderfully. I'm using them on the artifical rock at the gym and they grip like crazy. I couldn't be happier.

I was a little skeptical about buying my climbing shoes online, but after reading positive reviews I am glad I did. The shoe fits very well and is comfortable. I like how it looks and it definitely helped me gain confidence in my footwork on the rocks.

Took me to the next level in trusting my toe holds but they are too narrow for me in the toe. Have to take them off after 20min. Maybe a half size larger than my street shoes would work better.

One of the only shoes out there i could find to fit my wide feet without hurting. Has a good stiff sole great for smearing on slab climbs. I've also have gotten several comments on the flashy design, very cool.

It took a couple of climbing sessions before the rubber became "grippy". Some of the thread is appears (visually) to be wearing quickly but otherwise this is a comfortable shoe to climb in.

Negative Reviews:

I'm surprised at all of the positive reviews. My pair blew apart after about three months. Look elsewhere.
