I see Evolv bandits are discontinued. Does anyone know what they were replaced with? Iím hoping similar last, different branding and colour scheme.

Or recommendations for similar fitting shoes? I found these really good for balance of moderate technicality, comfort and a not too aggressive heel.

Thanks

thanks, though my size is UK 8 for tighter 'good' shoes or UK 8.5 for all day comfort.

I've had Bandits before and loved them. Now have velcro Evolv Defy and I think they're even better. Different colour though, in case that's a deal breaker.

thanks - I have picked up the last 8.5 from Joe browns. Prefer the lace ups than the velcros, but need to wean myself off them if they are to be discontinued!

Thanks. That's basically my question, there's usually a replacement model that's more or less the same fit. No idea of that's the defy, geshido or luchador, and they aren't stocked in my local shop.

Stock up if you can afford it. I bought 6 pairs of discounted Whites when they were discontinued. Last two pairs should see me through until the new model arrives next year.

Still pining for the Five Ten Lynx after 20 years.

Geshido have been discontinued as well, towards the end of 2015.
Sorry to hear the bandits are going the same way!
