I am a longtime wearer/lover of the Evolv Cruzer Classic. It came time to get a new pair and I saw this new style, the Psyche. It's really hard to tell, from the pictures and description, what the difference is between the two, so here's my take. The Cruzer Classic is a lighter build, kind of like Tom's - it feels like you could have sewn them yourself. The back folds down easily if you want to shuffle around in them. The Psyche is a sturdier, more shoe-like shoe. I don't think you would fold the back down on this one, as the sides are much thicker. The inside of the Classic is super soft and cushy, lined with microfiber and a very well cushioned insole that is kind of two pieces of foam (this falls apart eventually and has historically been my cue to buy a new pair). The inside of the Psyche is a bit rougher, lined with something more like canvas, and a much more firm insole - I would say not cushioned at all. I use these for daily commuting to work, and I have to say, the classic is a bit softer to walk in. I would also suggest not running in these, unless you are ULTRA minimalist. Lastly, the sizing of the Classic (men's size 7) I feel actually fits me better than the Psyche (women's size 8.5). Technically, the Psyche probably fits better (gives my toes more room), but I kind of like the sock-like feeling of the Classic. All in all, I think both have a place in my wardrobe, but the psyche will not replace my classics. (first two pictures are Psyche, second two are Classic)

Nice shoe, planning to buy this when it comes in in a men's 9.5 in slate. I wear a women's 11 medium, and though the men's 10 fits, it's just a skosh too big. I love the flexible sole and room for my toes! Planning to hike in these.

When I first put these on, i thought, "What a nice-looking and comfortable shoe. But after wearing them for a few minutes, the soles were incredibly stiff and uncomfortable. Not for me. I wear a women's 11, these men's 10 fit well, though were a tad wide.

The women's 11.5/men's 10 is a pretty perfect length for my size 11 foot. Runs wide - I have a medium to narrow and somewhat thin, vertically, foot. Very comfy, just sloshing around a bit in the width. Nice looking as well. Love the flexibility!

I bought these shoes for short mountain hikes, every day walking, and for in the gym. The traction is great on wet boulders and logs. They are very comfortable for walking and look good. Also, I like to lift in these since they are flat, though I still remove them for deadlifts. I will definitely buy another pair when these wear out.

I much prefer flat bottom low profile shoes. I don't do any trail running or anything with these. I simply bought these to replace my everyday regular shoes. I figure climbing / hiking shoes should last longer than any tennis shoe. So far, these have been great. They look amazing and feel snug. I have skinny fit and these felt fine. If you generally buy a wider shoe, these will probably not work for you.

TLDR; Get a half size larger than your normal shoe size, don't run with these shoes So I ordered my true size and the next size up; definitely needed to keep the larger of the two, you may want to try a full size larger if you are inserting your own orthotics in. My trial run of these shoes was made today in Chautauqua Park in Boulder, CO. I did 4.8 miles, so I got a good feel of them. For walking trails or light hiking, these shoes performed excellent. Super lightweight and enough traction to climb up the many rocks in my way. I love the rubber toe; it saved me from some painful scrapes. For more vertical hiking or longer treks, I would not recommend these. They didn't really help the descent of my climb (other than the traction). Also, do NOT run in these shoes. Even with wool socks, it was quite painful. However, these would also make great casual shoes, though I don't know if they would irritate you after really long walks. I would recommend wearing socks on your first trail, but you could probably go blister-free after they are broken in.

Comfortable and precise high-performance edging shoe. Slighter stiffer and narrow toe-box allows you to really dig in and stand on small holds, and there is adequate toe-patch rubber to scum around and under corners and aretes. Works great across a wide range of climbing applications, from sport to bouldering, and stays true-to-size with very little stretch.

So far these shoes feel great... and call me crazy, but I've been strggling to find good light hiking sneakers that have a very flat footbed so I can put my own insole in... I've become a hard core Birkenstock fan after they helped me get over plantar pain, so i've bought a few pairs of Birk shoes and swap the insoles around... they work great in these!

I normally wear a size 6 in shoes and had this climbing shoe in a 5.5. I ordered that same size but for some reason this time it was too small and exchanged for a size 6 and it fits great. The only issue with these shoes in general is they get really stinky with wear, but I know I like the shoe so keep getting it until I find another one I like better.

These are a great pair at a reasonable price if you're a beginner at rock climbing. I normally wear a size 5 or 5.5 but 5 fit great on me. They're typically true to size and if you're going one size up then that might be too big already. Your toes are suppose to curl up a bit, and leave little-to-no room for wiggle all around. These are NOT meant for walking like any regular shoe and will be uncomfortable if you try to do so for long. Wear these without socks and although they might be slightly uncomfortable, if at all, they'll fulfill their purpose and stretch a bit over time. Definitely recommend these Elektra's and I love the purple color!

I wish I'd listened to the anon review. I have slightly wide feet and the sole is just too small, it felt like I was balancing on a pad. They look really nice and fit well otherwise...

First off, I am pretty strict with shoes. I have to say they fit well, run a half size small.(to be expected with a form fitting hike/trail shoe) They glove fit the foot. However if you are going to use a arch support,they do kinda hug the back heel,which I am prone to hee blister ,as my heel sticks way out in the back.They might relax though. I can tell by the soft material,the shoe will have a small tendency ti mis-shape. as a cheaper shoe would. the sole is amazing. USA made. I can tell the sole rubber is of high quality. All in all a good show for the price.

I love these shoes. I initially bought them because I was having trouble with my Achilles tendon and needed a comfortable gym shoe that would not irritate it. Now I wear them everywhere. I've worn them walking city streets, at the gym, and hiking in the mountains. They're super cute and very comfortable. Another reviewer mentioned that the soles leave black marks on the floor, and that is true. So I don't wear them on my white kitchen floor! Other than that, they're great.

When you first put it on, it's very comfortable, almost like a heavy sock. Looks nice and minimal. The main problem with it though is that the sole is too narrow. If you don't step perfectly straight you'll feel the edge of the sole under your foot, like your slipping off the edge a bit. Maybe that means it's too narrow for my foot, but I've never had to buy extra wide shoes so I consider my foot to be average width.

I recently starting Bouldering (indoor rock climbing) this is a good starter shoe. The first wear irritated the back of my heel at first because these are worn without socks. After the first use I haven't had any issues. These shoes definitely feel weird, they are supposed to feel different but not hurt. They didn't hurt me at all. I wear a size 10 normally but 10.5 fit perfect. Your toe is supposed to reach the front of the shoe because you need to use your toes for climbing. If your toes slightly curl then that's normal. The velcro allows easy adjustment and removal especially after a hard climb!

With such a simplistic design, I think this gets overlooked as a quality approach shoe. Fits snugly and has a sticky-rubber sole making it capable of climbing/routesetting/gym use, and the heel folds down, very useful when hanging out between climbs outside. Stretches about half size as it is a slipper, so size down a little if you are using it as a performance approach shoe. Not ideal in snowy or wet conditions, but great in summer and in desert environments - think Red Rocks, Nevada or Joshua Tree approaches.

I bought these for my son - his first set of technical shoes. with the laces, they are the right shoe for a novice - good all around shoe for indoor climbing.

First off I want to start, I really like these shoes. They fit well. Have excellent comfort. I walked over 70 miles in these shoes no discomfort, no blisters. I received tons of compliments. BUT....they have marking soles. Who has sneakers that leave marks on your floors anymore? I was prepping Thanksgiving dinner and at end of day was asking who wore the marking shoes that messed up my floors. It was me. Turns out all that pivoting was marking up my floors. I'm scared to wear them indoors now.
