After an initial adjustment period, we fell in love with these shoes, and that surprised us. The Shaman LV surpassed our expectations in many ways. We think they are comfortable, adequately aggressive, and keep you on your toes for difficult climbs. However, we had to give our Top Pick award for sport climbing and bouldering to the even more aggressive and more sensitive La Sportiva Solution, which is insanely comfortable for such a downturned shoe. We think you can't go wrong with either model.
This shoe really excels with steep to overhung climbs. It allows me to really dig in and grab on with the toe, and feel much more secure when I’m hanging at a steep angle. That has given me much more confidence, and made me way more likely to go for it and push myself within that style. The sensitivity of this LV version as compared to the original version of the shoe is definitely greater. At the same time I would prefer a different shoe that has more sensitivity for more balancey, slabby climbs. In terms of smearing and edging abilities, I wouldn’t call those stand-out features, but it feels absolutely adequate to me, and it more than makes up for that in what it does on overhangs, so I have no complaints. This shoe is all about giving you that advantage on a pumpier climb. It’s ideal for bouldering, and the quality fit also make it a good choice for steep endurance climbs as well.
