/ evolv geshido
just woundered, has anyone else had this experience with the geshidos or any other shoes and what are your thoughts
5 months seems reasonable for a pair of climbing shoes to me. If its one side maybe you are dragging one foot up the panel of the wall, causing excessive wear. Strange its just one shoe.
I'm afraid that with a few exceptions the cost of a rock shoe is inversly proportional to its durability. I'd say that the current line up of Evolv shoes (again with a few exceptions) are of above average hard wearingness. Have a close look at (or get somebody else to) your footwork - chances are you're dragging your toes up or down the rock/wall at some point. Sorry if that's not what you wanted to hear!
Rather than binning them you might want to contact Torquil at Llanberis Resoles who should be able to patch them up for you as good as new.
