More new shoes! The Kira and Kronos from Evolv are the newest models to arrive at AntiGravity Equipment. Transitioning climbers will definitely want to stop in and take a look at this technical flat-lasted shoe. Experienced climbers wanting an affordable pair of technical all-arounders can also benefit from the balance of comfort and performance without the high-end price tag. Gals with slim feet will appreciate the secure fit of Kira while the Kronos fits a variety of widths.
I had a chance to demo the Kronos on a trip to Red Rocks and had a great experience breaking in a brand new shoe on the trip. By day two I was able keep the shoes on while being lowered off single pitch climbs and by the third day of climbing they felt comfortably molded to my feet. The medium rand tension in the heel and comfortable flat-last was a welcome change from the aggressive construction of my down-turned performance shoes. The cinch-pull strap closure is what I wish it would be on my Solutions. The wide strap tightens and feels secure across the dorsal part of my foot letting the rest of the shoe perform well on edges and smears with security.
