The X-Alp Seek features a new dual density EVA outsole with a firmer second density for a more enhanced feel, and a quick drying, breathable mesh to help make it one of Pearl Izumi's best selling shoes.
I have had a pair of these for almost four years. They are showing a little wear but have held-up well. I kept waiting for something to come loose or tear but the shoe is well made. I am not a fan of the shoes with straps so wanted laces. I was concerned that the lace keeper built into the tongue of the shoe would quickly stretch and fail but it is doing great. Good sole and traction and the right amount of give in the shoe so you can walk around in it.
