Perfect
For bouldering or sport climbing this shoe is perfect. Comfortable and very technical. My training pair has been going for 8 months!!! I use them a ton.

Very good shoe
These are very aggressive shoes but they are surprisingly versatile. Not the best for long days on rock but for projecting they are unbelievable. I can wear them for a full session at the gym if i want to.

Pro's - Very good grippy high angle shoe. Especially good for toe hooking and technical footwork.

Con's - Can't wear them for as long as the Pontas Velcros. But i buy the Shaman's really small so go figure.

Incredible High-Performance Shoe
Since first coming out, the Shamans instantly became my go to shoe for performance climbing as a part of the Evolv team. I have found them to excel at all rock types and terrains. After downsizing my first pair about 1.5 sizes from my street shoe, for my second pair I downsized less, increased comfort, and made no sacrifice in performance. If anything, the slightly larger pair were more versatile on less steep terrain and "smedging." Hands down the best heel-hooking shoe I have owned. I could not recommend the Shamans highly enough.

the whole package
Definitely the whole package! The shaman fits perfectly! The heel cup never slips and your toes have the perfect amount of room. I love that the entire top of the toe has rubber on it. This makes it a wonderful shoe for toehooking. Also, the entire heel is covered with rubber which is ideal for heelhooking. The downturned toe is not only perfect for overhanging steepness, it is great for all angles. The three strap design allows you to tighten your shoe to your exact size and comfort. The shaman has comfort, sticky rubber, and is perfect for sending all your projects.

No Joke
This shoe is seriously no joke. When I first got it I thought it would be limited to caves and the steeps, but sized right, I find myself using it for anything from steep bouldering to slabby technical climbing. It's as good as climbing shoes get.

PS - don't size them too small. They perform perfectly if you size them comfortable. The luv-bump and the toe box put your feet in the power position, so you're not required to cram.

Shaman Review
I am on my 3rd pair of the Shaman's and I love them. They fit so well out of the box and perform better than any other shoe I have ever climbed on. The rubber is excellent and the shape is perfect for bouldering or sport climbing. I would highly recommend this shoe to anybody who wants to up their game and send!

Awesome Shoe for Any Climb!
I have used this shoe for a few years now and love them. At first, they were for my steep projects but now I use them for every type of terrain, even 5.13 slab climbing.

Shaman Review
The Shamans are the best in Evolv's line up for bouldering. The fit is very glove like, The heal is SOLID and the love bump is amazing! The only downside to the shoe is the 3 strap system which hinder aggressive toe hooks. However, the straps do provide a tank-like fit, and are an advantage for aggressive heal hooks. (The new Nexxos could be the answer for hardcore toe hooks!)
I sized mine a size down from street shoe for a piss hard bouldering shoe. I would probably go half size down from street shoe if you are just looking for snug, or size to your street shoe for comfiness. (my street shoes are vans).
