Product Description

The DEMORTO is hands down the best Symmetrical toe profile performance shoe on the market. We created the DEMORTO based on the requests from climbers who desired a symmetrical toe profile high performance shoe but were frustrated that almost all of the symmetrical shoes currently available were entry level shoes. Anyone with Morton’s foot (longer 2nd toe) or climbers who prefer a more symmetrical toe box will love this shoe. The molded TRAX XF-3 outsole was engineered to have variable thickness gradients of the sole to conform to the foot and provide perfect anatomical support and sensitivity where needed. The molded sole is thinner in the arch section for better arch fit and ridged and thicker in the heel section for mild cushioning and the full length midsole underneath enhances edging power.


*PROFILE Symmetrical toe profile (KSA-1 last)
*SOLE 4.2 mm TRAX® XF-3 high friction rubber outsole with thickness gradients
*RAND 2.2mm TRAX® duro-rand
*UPPER Synthratek synthetic upper with leather trim
*LINING Microfiber lining
*MIDSOLE MX-2 2mm stiff full-length midsole
*SIZES 5 to 13.5 US men, including half sizes

Received these as a gift. I do have Morton's toe, but found this shoe very soft. Not good for edging. Would use on long easier trad routes, but not for sport climbing and definitly not on sandstone. Evolv seems like a cool company. Will pay attention to there other products, "vegan-friendly" synthetic shoes.

Great Shoe
Wow, I've never worn a better fitting shoe. I've only been able to use them indoors thanks to it being the dead of winter, but I can't wait to put them through their paces later on this year. Everything I've experienced with them so far, though, indicate that they will be acceptable at worst, to outstanding at best, depending on what you're using them for.
