The Evolv Valor climbing shoe is a great shoe for beginners. The comfortable synthetic lining makes the shoe incredibly comfortable to wear, even over longer periods. You wont have to worry about any pressure points or pinching sensations. It is recommended that beginners order the shoe in their regular street shoe size. The tongue is equipped with additional padding and can be adjusted for an individualised fit using the two hook and loop straps. Whats more, the Valor has a somewhat stiffer midsole to provide less experienced feet with the best possible support. The Valor is thus a great all-round shoe for the gym and your very first taste of the vertical world!
