Evolv Rockstar Reviews:


I know these aren't considered good shoes by the other climbing snobs I'm surrounded by, but I'm here to tell you that not only are they totally adequate, but they are the only pair of shoes that I've tried on that fit my narrow foot. I tried a few pairs of scarpas (also good for narrow feet) but they were a little baggy around the ankle, and in total i have probably tried on about 20 different pairs of climbing shoes before settling on these ones. they fit my foot like a glove, love the speed laces, and it has just enough edge without being too super aggressive. I'm an 8.5/9 in regular shoes and i went with an 8.5 in the rockstars and was happy with my decision. they hurt at first during lengthy climbing sessions, but stretched just enough after a few weeks.

I have done about 15 climbs now with my Rockstars and they fit like a glove. It took a few climbs to break them in to be comfortable, but this is common for any shoe. Just stick with them and you'll be glad you did. I mostly climb a 5.8/5.9 difficulty and these help dig into the wall on those slivers that i never think will hold but they do! These do run very close to your street shoe size so I recommend ordering same and not taking it down at all. Also, on another recommendation, I ordered two sizes and kept the one that fit best and returned the other. This did cost me the return shipping but totally worth it to have right size without wating for an exchange turn-around to get them.

I recently got back into rock climing and decided that it was time to invest in some gear. Being from the flat lands of Florida there are not many locations to try on and buy climbing shoes. After reading reviews and talking to some climbers at the gym I decided to go with the evolv rockstar. I climb indoors 3-4 days a week and these shoes have been a vast improvement over the gym rental shoes. I bought them to fit tight which has been very helpful especially as I have advanced in my climbing. I would deffinetly recommend this shoe to someone who is beginning in the sport and looking for a low cost shoe; especially if you don't have the availability to try shoes on.

Great shoe

I have had these shoes for almost a year. I climb 2-3 times a week, mostly gym but some outdoors when I can. The rockstars are very comfortable and fit my foot well. They are comfy enough that I normally leave them on for the entire time I'm climbing inside - but I have never felt them slip on my heal no matter how how it gets outside.

After a year (with a somewhat new climber) they are still in great shape with plenty of life left in the rubber.
They are a great all-around non-aggressive shoe.

So far I really like these shoes. I am a begginner/intermediate climber and was looking for a basic comfortable shoes for multi pitch routes. I was worried about ordering online without trying them on, but I went with my athletic shoe size and the climbing shoes ended up fitting perfectly. So far I climbed about 5 single pitch climbs and one multi pitch route in them and they fit like a glove. The performance is great for the outdoor climbing I do - usually no more difficult than 5.9+ or 5.10-

I've had these for a few months now and love them. They wear in really nicely, grip good and the slightly pointed toe is great for jamming. The soles have held up nicely, they are peeling back slightly in the heel, but nothing out of the ordinary wear and tear of a climbing shoe. I've used them both on rock and in the gym for multiple hours each time and they are comfortable... well, as comfortable as a climbing shoe can be...

As beginner climbers, I wanted to give my wife some decent shoes. The first I ordered were a little on the small side so I exchanged them for a size up. If you are interested in these, I would definatly buy up a size. When we got the second pair we went right to our neighborhood indoor rock gym. From a novice point of view, these shoes were more than sufficient and I would recommend them.

I just started getting into climbing about a month ago and needed a good, high quality shoe. These have been great so far. I am normally a shoe size 7.0 in women's and ordered a 7.0 which fits perfectly. Just enough of a squeeze that I can get a good grip but not too much so that my feet are killing me after one route. Would definitely recommend these!

Climb On

I originally tried these shoes on as a demo and loved them. They were comfortable and technical at the same time, I thought they were tooo good to be true so I tried on all the other brands and couldn't find one that fit like the Rockstar or performed like the Rockstar...decision made! I ordered them online and have been loving them ever since!

I bought these in my street size as suggested...but they are much too tight. I am going to return and get a bigger size. I recommend going up a half or even a whole size. Oh, and the shoes do not say rock star like the picture shows, which is a bummer. But they are still pretty good looking.
