First Look Gear Review
Street Price: $100
Pros: Versatile, comfortable, great for long approaches
Cons: Not great at edging, a little bulky when put in a backpack for multi-pitch climbs
Best Uses: Climbs with big approaches such as HIgh SIerra routes
The Evolv Bolt is a top performer in our approach shoe tests. It scored almost as high as the Five Ten Guide Tennie, our Best Buy winner. Both shoes are very similar in design, performance and price. The Bolt has a better sole for hiking and the Guide Tennie climbed a little better. Check back soon for a full review and check out our complete Approach Shoe Review.
