Good fit and stick well, but warm

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been looking for a pair of shoes that would replace my Evolv Bandits (I won't wear leather climbing shoes). These shoes fit great. I used the fit recommendations on their website (which are climbing rating based). I haven't had a chance to try them outdoor yet, but indoor the rubber feels just as good as Evolv trax rubber. They are a bit warmer than I'd like. It seems like the liner is the reason they are warm, but the liner keeps them from feeling slimy.
Edit: I've used them outside now on basalt (at Diablo Canyon in NM), and they stick really well to tiny basalt edges. I almost feel like it sticks better than evolv trax rubber, but I haven't had a chance to do a 1:1 comparison yet.

Happy to hear these are working well for you! It's nice to hear that So Ill has a good sizing guide for their shoes as well!
