Outdoor Gear Lab Gear Review rating 3/5

We like the Elektra as an affordable climbing shoe option. Ultimately we gave the Best Buy award to the leather Tarantulace which is a little more comfortable, fits slightly better, and costs $9 less. However, if you prefer the fit of the Elektra or would rather have a synthetic shoe, we think this is a decent shoe for the price.

Crux Crush Gear Review no rating given just a review

The aspect of fit is the first of a number of reasons why these are a great beginner shoe. As far as a climbing shoe goes, these are pretty comfy, and break in quickly. They are true to size, and made with a narrower toe box than other climbing shoes, but they also don’t cramp your toes (probably because of magic, because you know that’s how they do things at Evolv). They are snug enough that you get the idea of what a climbing shoe should feel like, but not bad enough to scare you off.
