/ Odd shoe trade - thoughts?
I am currently climbing in one 3.5 muira and one 5 spirit red chilli which may aswell be a slipper at this point and my gradual process of trying to stretch my other muira is taking longer than I hoped.
People could post on here for left or right shoes sizes they have that are spare or shoes they need and people could swap or buy/sell. Does this sound like a sensible idea or have things like this failed in the past?
Might be worth sending off an email to them (the shoemakers) and asking. Can't hurt.
Must admit it surprises me to some extent that specialist shoes (like climbing shoes and hiking boots at the higher end) aren't sold in individuals rather than pairs, as I have that issue as well, which causes issues buying hiking boots. Though in my case the difference is only half a size so it can usually be handled by wearing one more sock on my left (smaller) foot.
Evolv is selling you shoes in different sizes if you order them from their website. I think its 10 Dollars extra or so but i guess it woud be worth it if you really need it.
