EvolvWe love searching for new gear to bring into the store. We believe that it’s important to keep our inventory fresh and provide as many quality options as possible for our customers. Sometimes we get to present something completely new, and sometimes we bring in something tried and true in other regions. Evolv is by no means a new brand. They’ve been around making quality climbing shoes and climbing gear for years.

While Evolv isn’t new to the climbing industry they are new to our store, and we’re excited to say that you can now find Evolv climbing shoes in our climbing section. So we’re here to introduce you to the brand and tell you a little bit about them.

Many climbers are already familiar with this brand. Chris Sharma has been one of the most impressive and most recognized climbers over the past decade, and is one of Evolv’s Elite athletes. Sharma was first known for his incredible bouldering, but has since made the transition to sport climbing where he continues to establish world-class first ascents. He has collaborated with Evolv to design shoes on a couple of occasions, producing the Evolv Pontas and the Evolv Shaman.

In addition to the world-famous Sharma, Evolv also sponsors climbing legends Lisa Rands and the up-and-coming phenom Ashima Shiraishi. Ashima climbed her first V13 at age 10, and remains the youngest person to accomplish this feat. More recently she became the first female to climb 5.15. Evolv also sponsors climbers on a Grassroots level to support and help develop the climbing community.

Evolv got its start back in 2003 when the two owners started handcrafting climbing shoes in a small garage right here in the United States. But unlike many companies that start in the U.S. but end up outsourcing their product, Evolv has stayed true to their roots. To this day, the company does research and development as well as manufacturing for their climbing shoes in the U.S.

As you probably know, we love to support U.S. made products here at Uncle Sam’s Safari Outfitters. We are thrilled that Evolv fits the bill and proud to bring their climbing shoes to our shelves. Stop by today and we will help you get the perfect fit!
