The Evolution shoe is a much improved offering from Gilbert, you can see the research and development that has gone into these shoes from previous models particularly where the sole unit attaches to the upper. Not only is the look of the shoe improved but also the durability.
On trying the shoes our staff (who are all netball players) commented:
"The cushioning is much improved with the new gel inserts in the forefoot and rearfoot."
"They feel more structured and secure, particularly around the ankle."
"I like the new arch support, that's placed well and helps with the fit of the shoe."
"It actually feels really comfortable."
All in all this looks like a success story for Gilbert in their footwear range and we expect the hard work they've invested to pay off.
We've tested the sizing with our staff in size 5, 6.5 & 7 and the Evolution shoes are accurately sized. Unfortunately, they don't do in size 10 for our sales and purchasing manager!
