Review by: Chris McNamara ⋅ Founder and Editor-in-Chief, OutdoorGearLab ⋅ November 30, 2012  
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.
