Article: Evolv Optimus Prime and Pontas
Just picked up a pair of the Optimus Primes last weekend before a trip to bishop. Hard to find in a shop but well worth the wait. Absolutely love them so far. This is my 3rd pair of evolvs, i've owned 2 evos in a 7 and climbed in a pontas 7 as well. Bought the Optimus Primes in a 7.5 and they are so much smaller than my other Evolvs in a 7. They are not painful though, just very, very tight. Heel feels a bit unprecise compared to the Pontas, though these things edge and frontpoint like a dream. Climbed some very edging intensive 5.12s in ORG last weekend, and another thin .12 in Placerville a couple days ago and they performed better than any shoe I've ever used. They make thumbwidth edges feel like jugs...sick for bouldering and intense sport pitches...i'm sold.
