Is this how it starts? One week you feel embarrassed about wearing the ladies' RockStar in the company of your bros. The next you're wearing a jog bra and high-fiving everyone at the cliff. Despite sexual-identity crises, our female and male testers loved this "women's" shoe. Evolv designed the RockStar with a shallower heel cup, higher arch and lower volume than its other models, and although I never thought of myself as having feminine feet, this shoe fits me wonderfully.
The Evolv Rockstar is a lined, synthetic-upper shoe aimed at the all-around female climber. Our testers agreed that Rockstar accomplishes that goal admirably. Said one tester, “I’d certainly recommend this shoe to a beginner who’s serious about improving, or an advanced climber who needs a comfortable, all-around shoe.” The shoe’s moderately soft midsole helps it strike a strong balance between edging and smearing, with good sensitivity overall. Rand rubber is abundant around the shoe, except over the toe box, where a more generous portion would boost toe-hooking and crack-climbing performance. If you do lots of sport climbing and are making forays into trad climbing, this could be a good shoe for you.
