It took 2 attempts to get the right size. I typically wear 8.5 women's, but the ones listed at 7M/8.5W were too small. The ones I ended up with say 7.5 M/8.5 W on the tongue, but were listed as 7.5 M/9 W. They are very comfortable, have been great to wear at work, and also for scrambling. I think they'll be great for taking on climbs to use as descent shoes. Will probably end up getting a second pair.

I wish I'd listened to the anon review. I have slightly wide feet and the sole is just too small, it felt like I was balancing on a pad. They look really nice and fit well otherwise...

First off, I am pretty strict with shoes. I have to say they fit well, run a half size small.(to be expected with a form fitting hike/trail shoe) They glove fit the foot. However if you are going to use a arch support,they do kinda hug the back heel,which I am prone to hee blister ,as my heel sticks way out in the back.They might relax though. I can tell by the soft material,the shoe will have a small tendency ti mis-shape. as a cheaper shoe would. the sole is amazing. USA made. I can tell the sole rubber is of high quality. All in all a good show for the price.

I love these shoes. I initially bought them because I was having trouble with my Achilles tendon and needed a comfortable gym shoe that would not irritate it. Now I wear them everywhere. I've worn them walking city streets, at the gym, and hiking in the mountains. They're super cute and very comfortable. Another reviewer mentioned that the soles leave black marks on the floor, and that is true. So I don't wear them on my white kitchen floor! Other than that, they're great.

When you first put it on, it's very comfortable, almost like a heavy sock. Looks nice and minimal. The main problem with it though is that the sole is too narrow. If you don't step perfectly straight you'll feel the edge of the sole under your foot, like your slipping off the edge a bit. Maybe that means it's too narrow for my foot, but I've never had to buy extra wide shoes so I consider my foot to be average width.

Got blister on my tendons (not on heel) after 2 hours. Look great just didn't work for me. Damn, I liked them too!

I love these shoes! I think they run a bit large in terms of length, but are true to width (at least for Evolv shoes which tend to run a tad wide anyway). I had to return them for a 1/2 size smaller which actually seemed like a pretty big jump down in size, but because they are canvas they will stretch to be comfortable. I'd say if you want to wear them just as casual shoes with a sock, order 1/2 size up. If you want to wear them without socks, but not have your toes hit the front, order your true size. If you're actually hoping to climb in them and walk very little, order 1/2 size down. FYI though, they would be ok for some easy climbs and smearing, but not much else because they aren't stiff.

Evolv's designs include very sticky rubber. I chose the Axiom and found that the size 12 fits my 10.5 US sized foot. I can squeeze into an 11.5, but I prefer a comfortable fit. For friction or edging, these are some of the best rock shoes I've climbed in. I've climbed 3 big wall routes in Yosemite with my Axiom's. After 6 months of climbing, my Axiom's were stolen. Therefore I purchased my second set of Axioms I prefer the lacing system compared to velcro. I can get these shoes snug where I want them the lacing system. The style is great although it's hard to keep them clean. I'm an organizer for a 1200 member climbing group and I recommend the Evlov Axiom to everyone in my group.

With such a simplistic design, I think this gets overlooked as a quality approach shoe. Fits snugly and has a sticky-rubber sole making it capable of climbing/routesetting/gym use, and the heel folds down, very useful when hanging out between climbs outside. Stretches about half size as it is a slipper, so size down a little if you are using it as a performance approach shoe. Not ideal in snowy or wet conditions, but great in summer and in desert environments - think Red Rocks, Nevada or Joshua Tree approaches.

I bought these for my son - his first set of technical shoes. with the laces, they are the right shoe for a novice - good all around shoe for indoor climbing.

First off I want to start, I really like these shoes. They fit well. Have excellent comfort. I walked over 70 miles in these shoes no discomfort, no blisters. I received tons of compliments. BUT....they have marking soles. Who has sneakers that leave marks on your floors anymore? I was prepping Thanksgiving dinner and at end of day was asking who wore the marking shoes that messed up my floors. It was me. Turns out all that pivoting was marking up my floors. I'm scared to wear them indoors now.

We originally bought them fort my boyfriend who is a mens 11 and they were way too small. in fact I (women's 9 1/2) fit in to them nicely. I was considering leaving it for myself because I also need high arch support, and the style is really great. The grip seems good, the entire sole is made from what looks like tire rubber but alas we are sending them back. My foot started hurting a little after trying them out for a few hours. Maybe i just wasn't used to it and they need to be broken in more, because it definitely looks like they can stretch and form around one's foot. So don't let that discourage you, I wasn't really planning on buy shoes for myself anyways.

These are adorable and so comfy! I like the sticky rubber bottoms for hiking. These are cute enough to wear all over! I did have to order a size smaller than my normal sneakers.

They fit tightly without squishing my toes and I loved that. The sole is more convex than I like in a climbing shoe, but they had great grip. I had to replace them after 2 months of 3 days a week indoor sport climbing because the stitching holding the tongue in place to the outside near the toe failed and the toe portion then had too much slack so my foot could slide slightly inside the shoe. It happened to both shoes about 2 weeks apart. Not sure if it was a defective pair or if that is normal of this style.

I love this shoe. It's light, comfortable and easy to slip on. It's a little dressier than plain old running shoes. I love the purple! It has become my go to around town casual shoe.

A friend of mine had bought these and raved about them, so I thought why not. I absolutely love them. Very comfortable! I can wear them all day at a theme park with no problem (the traction helps on those slippery walkways). I wish they came in more colors, but I have a feeling they will eventually. I was worried about sizing and thought they might be a tad small when I got them, but they are perfect size and can even wear thin socks with them if I choose.

The Cruzers are my first choice for approach shoes! They are comfortable and cute! As a bonus, teal is my favorite color! I get so many compliments when I wear them to the crag or gym! I love them!

Love these shoes, I hike but not a lot of rock climbing and these shoes are so comfortable no breaking them in. I am also a golfer and walk so am going to try them on the golf course just because they are so comfortable and love not having to wear socks.

I am using a pair that is the same size as my street shoe and they fit great. Typically I feel insecure while edging when my shoes are sized to street, but not with the addict. I am able to size the shoe to work well in cracks, and maintain edging strength which is all I could want from a trad shoe. Being able to take the shoe on and off quickly is a bonus for long days, and multi-pitch climbing.

I'm a fan of slippers for most types of climbing, and these have held up solidly. Slip on pretty easily even when sized tight (helps that the front pull loop is directly attached into the upper), and the upper material conforms to your foot's shape well. I sized about a full size down, and they broke in quick to become some sensitive and adept climbing shoes. Definitely an all-around use shoe - good training shoe because of the softness, very precise shoe bouldering and sport climbing, and the upper is low without any excess material (like laces or velcro) so it can jam into cracks and hold easily. Definitely a good performance climbing shoe that fits comfortably.

I bought these to use them predominately for parkour. They are intended as rock climbing ascent shoes. But they are great for even casual wear. Many people would complain about the lack of support and thin soles, so they probably will not work as casual shoes for everyone.
