The Shakra utilizes the same technology, "Love Bump and "Knuckle Box" as the highly successful Shaman in a lower volume and narrower fitting design. An amazing fit, a dual hook and loop closure system, and side-pressure relief rand design make it an extremely comfortable high performance climbing shoe. Evolv has added even more rubber for optimal toe hooking, and with a more sensitive midsole than the Shaman, the Shakra connects you to the rock and gives you the edging power you need.
Lower Volume Shape: Designed for the climber with narrow or lower volume feet
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 causes hot spots in other shoes
Molded Trax® SAS Toe Patch: For extra toe coverage and protection
Split Tongue: Gives maximum comfort and easy on and off
Love Bump: Fills dead space under your toes while putting much needed energy towards the edging surface
Split / Outsole: For flexibility through the arch
Molded VTR: Evolv's Variable Thickness Rand (VTR) system puts thinner rand rubber in areas to reduce pressure points and hot spots around the foot as well as thicker rubber for increased longevity in the high wear zones near the toe for durability and performance
Trax® SAS: Best friction plus maximum durabilitity.
