Evolv Cruzer siappointment

I was so happy when my local climbing gym got three samples in(I live in Cape Town SA) and I was quick to snap up a pair. I really love the design and concept of these shoes. I'm a boulderer and a lot of our areas have pretty decent walk ins. These shoes perform exactly as I expected.Brilliantly!

No for the bad. Firstly they are a bit pricey for what you're getting. Secondly, the stitching on the side of the upper is all but beefy. I've had these shoes for a couple of months and I only use them for mountain missions. Already this seem has popped! I'm really bummed about this. I'm going to see if I can take them to some shoemakers to beef up that side stitching. If I come right I'll post some pics.

So it seems as though Evolv have now beefed up the seams. Now I need to wait till the end of the year before a crate floats over to the southern part of africa. Look forward to receiving my new and improved pair.
