Among other things, Steph Davis is a climber, BASE jumper, wingsuit flyer, and most relevant to this post, an Evolv sponsored athlete. She is currently working with Evolv to design a desert crack slipper, and she recently put some awesome photos and a write-up on her blog chronicling the process so far.
Here’s a sample:
“The process of building climbing shoes is really fun to see. Everything begins with the last, which is a hard plastic cast in the shape of a foot and ankle. Every single shoe style is built on a last, and the shape of the last creates the shape of the shoe. So the fleet of lasts is a very important tool for the different shoes, and shaping the lasts is where everything begins.”
