Shaman LV Women



My vote: None ( 6 avg )


• Built for men and women with lower volume feet
• Microfiber lining in the forefoot for comfort and durability
• The "Love Bump" midsole puts your forefoot in a comfortable but precise position of power and fills in the dead space behind your toes
• The "Knuckle Box" works in combination with the "Love Bump" to provide room for your big toe knuckle to stay in a position of power
• Three opposing direction strap closures for a dialed in fit and snug arch

The Shaman LV is the ultimate low volume shoe for steep to overhanging climbing. Designed by Chris Sharma with input from Daila Ojeda, Steph Davis, Emily Harrington, Lisa Rands, and Ashima Shiraishi, the Shaman LV is based on the same design concept as the Shaman. It incorporates exclusive technologies, unique materials, and a radical new last perfect for low volume feet.

Love Bump/Knuckle Box Technology

Love Bump/Knuckle Box

The combination of the Knuckle Box and Love Bump force your toes into a position of power while remaining incredibly comfortable. The Knuckle Box makes room for your big toe knuckle to rest in a curled position without having to push fabric and rubber out of the way which cause hot spots in other shoes. The Love Bump fills the dead space under your toes while putting much needed energy towards the edging surface. These two features work together to provide an incredible edging platform.
Trax® Rubber Technology

Trax® Rubber

TRAX XT® high friction rubber is formulated to be the highest performing rubber on the market. TRAX-XT®has a perfect balance of high friction and edging power on different types of rock and plastic holds while performing consistently over a wide range of temperatures.
VTR3D Technology


With VTR3D, the “high wear” zone of the rand is thicker, while low wear areas are kept thin to reduce pressure points and hot spots around your foot.

Outdoor Gear Lab Gear Review rating 4/5

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.

Crux Crush Gear Review no rating given just a review

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.
