I've owned a pair of LVs for over 2 years now. I climb indoors about 3 to 5 times a week and climb outdoors about twice a month and they've held up pretty well considering the abuse. The glue that holds the rubber from the rand is slightly showing some wear but other than that everything still works well. The rubber does not ware out too quickly on this pair compared to other shoes of the same category. I've used the Evolv Hera but performancewise it does not compare. I wear a size 7.5-8 U.S./ 37.5-38 eu and bought these at half size small at 7U.S. My break-in period was comfortable all in all-- and the shoes got loose by a bout 1/4 a size after about 3 weeks use. I just ordered a new pair of these in the new Lapis Teal color and got 1 full size smaller at 6.5. It'll be tighter but performance on these babies will be better for sure.
