New Evolv Vegan Climbing Shoes for 2016

Exciting news for 2016, Evolv has three new vegan climbing shoes available. Luckily for vegan climbers, many companies now offer a range of completely synthetic shoes. These three from Evolv look great, and work for a range of skill levels, so I wanted to make sure you’re aware of them!

Evolv Shaman 2016

The ultra performance Shaman 2016:
(older versions of this shoe contain a leather footbed so make sure you’re getting the right one)

Building off the legacy of the original, the newly redesigned Shaman is the anchor of the Chris Sharma Signature Series. The new Shaman has an improved fit in terms of engineered comfort and performance with more toe rubber for toe hooking and an inset front strap for better medial side toe scumming. The upgrade promises to make current customers appreciate the enhancements while getting new customers to enjoy the legendary performance with comfort.

Due to the increased sensitivity of the new Shamans, many are sizing these down a half size from the previous version of the Shaman. (description from evolvsports.com)

And two all-around shoes: the Kira & Kronos.

Product description for both from evolvsports.com:

Anatomically engineered parts and design provide the [Kira & Kronos] with a comfortable fit without sacrificing performance. It uses a single buckle plus cinch-pull strap closure for convenience and a customizable fit for the modern climber making it one of the best flat-lasted technical all-around shoes on the market.
