Anyone else noticed a difference in quality between the two? Ergo 3s seem to be made of thinner, lower density material, and thus they feel cheap and nasty in comparison.

    I've owned both and as far as I'm aware the uppers are effectively the same apart from minor colour/ cosmetic differences, it's the soles that are different (lighter I think).

    Maybe you were comparing a "vernice" version with a non-vernice? The finish on the lorica is different obviously.

    Both were vernice! The upper on the Ergo 3 definitely felt softer/ more flimsy

    The buckles on the 3s feel lower quality to me, but I haven't noticed any other particular difference.

    I'm sure you're both imagining it... :wink:

    Maybe the newer shoes just seem "lower quality" because they are newer (the lorica hasn't stiffened with age..). Can't remember if any of the buckles were different between the 2s and the 3s, but if so I think it was only the one that you turn (the "techno strap"..). They are always bringing out subtly new versions of that, but they are generally always improvements!

    Maybe the ones I got were fake!
