Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Evolv's Pontas II is a revised take on the first shoe Chris designed for his Signature Series, the Pontas II is a versatile all arounder with a loyal following among trad climbers, sport climbers and boulderers alike. Edging, power, and versatility are the hallmarks of this modern classic
Redesigned for 2012, the Evolv Pontas II is a versatile all-arounder and part of the Sharma Signature Series.
The updated evolv Pontas II rock shoes improve upon the orginal Pontas shoes to give you a more secure fit and feel while you sport climb and boulder. The original Pontas had 2 rip-and-stick straps on each shoe; the Pontas II includes a third strap to draw the arches of the shoes into your feet for a better fit. Toe rands of varying thicknesses enhance durability in high-wear zones, such as the front of the toe, without being cumbersome. High-performance 4.2mm TRAX XT-5 high-friction rubber soles stick tenaciously to rock. Flexible and durable synthetic suede uppers resist stretching and dry quickly. Full-length MX-P 1.5mm midsoles have medium stiffness for edging power on long face routes yet are flexible enough for smearing. KA-1 lasting delivers an asymmetric toe profile that gives comfortable sensitivity and edging power. Microfiber lining in the forefeet, cotton in the heels and leather on the footbeds limit stretching and offer great comfort. The evolv Pontas II rock shoes are part of the Chris Sharma Signature Series.
Looking for a shoe that can do it all? The Pontas II from Evolv's Sharma Signature Series is a true all-around shoe for everything from multi-pitch to bouldering. Thanks to its relatively flat asymmetrical shape and its medium stiffness sole, this shoe offers all day comfort without losing edging performance. Three hook and loop straps give you a snug fit and draw the shoe into the arch of your foot giving you better heel hooking and edging.
