Evolv Sports, a climbing shoe company out of Santa Barbara, California, is offering all current National Youth Team members the opportunity to acquire Evolv climbing shoes at a considerable discount.
Evolv is offering the athletes and coaches of the 2003-2004 National Youth Competition Climbing Team a super "pro-deal". Athletes will be able to purchase any shoe from the Evolv line at $55 CDN (+GST). After trying them out and assuming that the shoes fit and perform well and you wish to continue to wear Evolv shoes, Evolv will send you a second pair for free (effectively getting two pairs for $55). Every other pair after that will be offered to Team members at $55. Evolv is also looking into initiating an incentive program for each athlete that will be performance based. Details of this program will follow.
Pete Woods will be hosting an Evolv shoe demo in Calgary. The date for this will be announced soon. Sizing can be done then. Should you be unable to attend the shoe demo, there is a sizing system on the Evolv web site located at:
The entire line-up of shoes can be seen at:
Evolv understands that some of the athletes have existing shoe sponsorship deals and might not want to participate in this program. Not a problem - Evolv is offering it to anyone on the Team who wishes to try the shoes out, and there is no obligation or expectation that anyone on the team must participate.
Since this is a team deal, Evolv has asked that all orders get sent through a single point of contact. If you want to try a pair, email Knut Rokne at email@example.com with all the information (what shoe, what size, where you want it sent), and he will send the team order in. It is requested that all orders be received no later than May 24th.
If you have any questions or want more details, please feel free to drop me an email.
