Evolv Defy Climbing Shoe
The Defy is Evolv’s best-selling climbing shoe, now improved for 2017. Evolv say the Defy is designed to work on everything. It’s an all-round climbing shoe with a flat, asymmetrical profile for a balance of comfort and precision on vertical climbs and a soft midsole for sensitivity on more technical manoeuvres. This time round, the Evolv has been updated with an enhanced fit over the previous model, a VTR rand for better comfort and durability, and a synthetic upper treated with an antimicrobial finish that keeps shoes smelling and feeling fresher for longer.
Evolv say that the Defy’s popularity comes down to its versatility; from sport, to boulder, to multipitch, and gym climbing, the Defy performs on anything and everything, and at great value, ideal for the do-it-all climber.
