Why do we have a different North American version of this shoe? The Euro version appears to be unlined and be slightly different than the NA version. It also appears that we have a third version of this shoe? Are we a dumping ground for a huge batch of prototypes from Europe that went wrong? (this has been done before). The reviews on the Euro version are much more positive than the the NA version.
A lot of companies seem to be doing similar things with different designs for the same footwear. I'd think that it may be a case of La Sportiva trying to make the shoe fit better into the market here in the states.
the euro version is different and better
if you order straight from sportiva you will get the euro version
