Who should buy the Evolv Kira

The Evolv Kiras has a short-but-sweet list of positive traits that might just be enough to woo in those who are already half invested in it. It is a solid option if you:

  • Prefer a climbing shoe that helps the users climb in comfort with as much technical performance as possible.
  • Prefer a climbing shoe that reduces hot spots yet promotes the shoe’s durability.
  • Prefer a climbing shoe that can be used in both indoor and outdoor activities.

Excellent traction

In the Evolv Kira, climbers are promised sufficient grip over tricky terrain thanks to the shoe’s Trax-SAS outsole. This sticky heavy-duty component is 4.2 mm thick. It covers the entirety of the shoe’s underside, giving it sufficient contact with the surface—ideal for negotiating cracks.

Can withstand the roughness of the terrain

The Kira has an all-synthetic upper, called Synthratex VX. It does not have a liner. The rubber rand engineered around the forefoot has a thicker construction than the rest, allowing the gear to withstand the roughness of the terrain, especially during toe jams.

Easy to wear

Evolv designers opted to give the shoe two heel pull loops and a split tongue for on-and-off convenience. Its closure system consists of two adjustable hook-and-loop (Velcro) straps. The upper strap conceals an adjustable ladder buckle made of a hardy material.
