I came across the website https://www.activeleisure.eu which is selling tarantula/lace for £40, evolv defy for £33, miura vs for £75.... (£5 delivery)

Has anyone heard of this store? Is it real?

It's uk based so I guess gooutdoors can price match this if anyone is looking for cheap shoes.

If you have to ask then almost certainly not, also they spell Evolv with an n....

"ACTIVE LEISURE E-TRADE LIMITED CO.

Is a wholly owned subsidiary of Evoque Claims and Appraisals Limited."

That parent company changed its name to Evoque Group Limited in September of this year, and has been around since 2014.

They are a salvage company.

The product range does seem to fit with it being a stock clearance or liquidation company. A lot of the shoes are only available in massive or tiny sizes. What does seem odd is that they are selling stuff from gooutdoors own brands like Higear and OEX.

Couple of years ago sports direct had Muria VS on their website for £45. I took the risk and they ended up being legit. 
 

£75 is about trade price

take the risk and see what happens.

Yeah but sports direct is a real store with a couple of shops a city. I've never heard of this store before.

You could buy with a credit card and then you can always file a chargeback if the goods don't arrive or not as described?

I think if I decide I need some beginner shoes, I'll go to gooutdoors and price match. But thanks, tell me if you buy anything from this sketchy looking website.

I chanced it and ordered a pair of Boreal Joker Lace from them for £40 + £5 delivery on 19 December. They normally retail at around £70. They arrived today, 23 December, and are the real thing. I think I'm going to buy another pair.

My assessment is this is someone who’s bought out a failed / closed down online retailer and are just running down the stock. 
 

Theres some great deals, wild country harness for considerably less than rrp, Brooks running shoes, scarpa VS etc, they just only have 1-4 different size options for each product but definitely worth a look.

Congrats for your new shoes man, thanks for biting the bullet for the rest of us.

They just buy up last years bin ends and sell them off cheap, after the distributors have touted them around the retailers.

Perfectly reasonable stuff, and some right bargains - especially Berghaus and Rab at the moment - and double especially if you are either vertically challenged or "more generously proportioned".
