Great for seconds but sucks on the Rap! On Multi pitch leaders carries the rev and belayer uses atc. Like I said it sucks to be stuck with it on the rap!!

I bought this shoe for the comfort aspect as well as a long lasting gym shoe. I was extremely impressed with its performance. The toe box seemed to be a little bigger than my other pair of evolves which I think gives it the comfort as well as the split tong. The rubber is as good as any you just have to make sure you take the couple of days to break it in. I found it edged well and the only thing I didnít like about the shoe is on little rounded knobs it seem to smear off. I would say no shoe is perfect, but this shoe out performs the intentions I had when I bought it. Its now become my favorite long trad shoe. Customer service also rocks!!

I found it hard to refill and liked the price of refilling it with Bison!

Best all around shoe I have tried! Sharp limestone couldn't cut the rubber on this shoe. Edges the best out of anything I have ever tried. Thanks Evolv
