Evolv Prime SC -
The Prime SC was newly designed for 2011 with a semi-symmetric toe profile that makes it an excellent fit and allows for edging performance on the entire front area. The down cambered shape provides a high level of performance without discomfort and the perforated synthetic upper and toung provides breathability when the heat is on. Evolv added a third strap closure across the midsection that improves support and arch wrap.


  • V-style innder top webbing structure that pulls from arch and heel for a performance fit.
  • Third opposing hook and loop strap for increased function and a more snug fit
  • Molded heel cup for a better fit and increased heel-hooking power


  • Re-designed one-piece toe patch that maximizes comfort and performance while toe hooking


  • New mid-foot strap that extends lower to the side for a tighter arch wrap


  • New toe rand layout for more rubber coverage and better pliability
The uncompromising performance of the Prime SC by EVOLV® will keep you steady on your feet on anything from a tricky gym climb to a difficult boulder challenge.

Evolv Prime SC Review:


The new Primes (SC and Lace up) have found their way into my regular rotation of climbing shoes, performing solidly on footwork intensive boulder problems, as well as long, technical face climbing. Quick Background on reviewer - 10 years climbing experience, 6 years professional coaching experience. Climbing in the 5.13 range. Shoe Pros - - crazy amount of rubber coverage, it's almost like a lightweight rubber sock pointed forward. Any angle you can place your foot on the rock has the capability to stick well. Semi-symmetrical last provides a good step of power across the first two toes. Edging and smearing are solid, and heel and toe hooking are baller. Nice construction; feels like it will last a lot of abuse. Could be better - - longer break in time than shoes with less rubber. First few sessions have these feeling tight and stiff. Break in to be comfortable and much softer, but the first few sessions are foot squeezy. Enough rubber coverage that it can make the foot sweat some on long routes.
