/ Problem with Evolv lining?
Never had it happen to me, it's normally the soles that go first, but has also happened to a mate's Shamens. Has anyone else had it happen to them? Is this a particular Evolv problem or do other brands also suffer?
Never had this problem, its always the toes that go first for me. But I get atleast 6 months of extensive usage out of them. Actually thinking about stocking up on the old pontas because I like them so much.
Yep! My Defys tore straight across the widest part of the foot. They seem to use a thinner lining than 5.10. (I've torn 5.10 linings at the stitches but never across the fabric.)
Get them now then. I got a pair for £50 today but places are running out fast.
I paid close to full price for them before they started being discounted! I got a pair of Bandits as their eventual replacement, but was hoping to get a fair bit more use from the Pontas before the Bandits became my main shoes!
I'm curious if anyone else has suffered the same problems with other brands of rock shoes? Seems a shame as I like Evolvs, but don't think I'll buy another pair if it seems to be a common fault. :(
