The Defy Climbing shoe by Evolv is the best selling men's model that just got an upgrade. The Defy VTR appeals to new and advanced climbers alike as a comfortable, great-fitting shoe that performs exceptionally well.
With the VTR technology (Variable Thickness Rand), you get a toe rand that has strategically varying thicknesses. The HW (High Wear) Zone will be engineered to be thicker and more durable than the other areas of the rand which will not only enhance the toe box structure but prevent toe-bulge as well. (PATENT PENDING)
Evolv is not afraid to defy convention, and never has it been more evident than with the Defy VTR rock shoe - a modification to their already most popular shoe. Still a comfortable, multi-purpose, slipper-sensitive rock shoe with an asymmetric toe profile, but now with the added advantage of a Variable Thickness Rand that beefs up certain wear points to help the shoes last longer and offer more value for your money.
Evolv's best selling shoe has received an upgrade for even better performance. With new Variable Thickness Rand (VTR) Technology, this shoe is more durable in the high wear areas, has limited toe-bulge, and maintains toe box structure. With the feel of a nice fitting slipper, the Defy VTR is comfortable for multi-pitch routes or all day in the gym. The TRAX® XT-5 high friction rubber will smear on slippery slopers and stick on overhangs.
