£130 for a pair of climbing shoes? £65 for a pair of sandals? This is insane.
Climbing shoes prices are a joke nowadays, how they can charge so much for something that generally falls to bits after around 6 months of regular use takes the piss.
But the more you pay the higher the grade you can climb right? ;-p
This was a bit useless. Would like to see them produce a direct comparison of white v green v pink so we can understand what it is closer to (sounds like probably the white) and some info on when supply of whites and greens will stop.
You can get much better prices in sales in the UK than in other countries though. Just bought a nice pair of Evolvs for I think it was 49 quid in GO Outdoor.
I pretty sure my Terra Fis cost £65 when I got them about eight years ago.
I wish scarpa would resurrect the Visions, best shoe I've ever had
Couldn't agree more. But people keep on paying stupid prices, so they're not going to get any cheaper.
Yes most my last few pairs of shoes have all been sale bought, however i need to bite the bullet soon as i want a new pair of pinks.
