Renders grip on steeper climbs

Climbers say that with its downturned design, asymmetric last, and thinner heel rand, it provides grip, precision, and flexibility they needed to grip footholds on steeper climbs.

Sufficient support and rigidity 

Climbers mentioned that it renders sufficient support and rigidity on vertical or technical faces when needed.

Incredible comfort for long climbs

From overhanging sport climbs to slabs, climbers stated that it has excellent performance for hard sending with enough comfort and support for longer, more moderate climbs.

Snug fit

Climbers loved its synthetic upper because they felt tighter and more powerful. Also, it limits its stretch to the bare minimum. 

Roomy forefoot

Climbers who have chunkier digits experienced a fantastic time because of the shoe’s spacious-yet-still-precise toe box. 

Easy to wear

Climbers loved the fact that this climbing shoe was easy to wear and maintains a tight fit needed on more technical climbs.

Evolv Geshido Velcro vs. Shaman

Pitted against the Geshido Velcro in this Evolv-centric head-to-head is the Shaman. Their differences are as follows:

Weight. In this regard, the Geshido Velcro bags the crown for being lighter than the Evolv Shaman by roughly 30 g per pair.

MSRP. The pricier one between the two is the Shaman. Its market price is $10 more than the featured shoe.

Velcro straps. The Geshido Velcro comes with two adjustable straps, while the competition has three.

Support. Both kicks have a midsole making them quite reliable as far as edging is concerned. That said, the Shaman’s midsole is of partial construction.

VERDICT: Choose the less expensive Evolv Geshido Velcro if you have some serious edging maneuvers to do. If you need more fit adjustability and extra flexibility in your step, fancy a pair of Shamans instead.
