/ Evolv Valours or 5.10 Stonelands?
Anyone had any experience with these?
What is the sizing like? Valours compared to pontas or stonelands compared to anasazi.
Any advice would be appreciated.
I never had 'Sazis but I had to go up a good 1.5 UK sizes in the Stonelands when we got them in (I'm usually about an 8.5 in something like a Bandit and a 10 in the Stonelands was about right). The Valor is built on exactly the same last as the Defy but with a much stiffer sole.
I would say the Stonelands have the technical edge, but the Valors beat them on price and probably comfort.
How do you get on with the 5.10 heel?
Thanks for that.
I quite liked the heel in the 'sazis but I've only had one pair. I think I bought them slightly too big though as they were pretty loose in the end.
If you're a 5.10 heel fan I'd probably go for the Stonelands, and base the size on the 'Sazis you had. They're a real leather upper so remember they'll give a little.
