The Defy is one of Evolv's most popular shoes and became an instant hit as soon as it was released it early 2005. It combines the benefit of a comfortable multi-purpose shoe and the convenience of a hook-and-loop fastener performance shoe. With the feel of a sensitive slipper, the Defy will smear on any slick sloper or stick on overhanging faces while being comfortable enough to wear on long multi-pitch routes or gym marathon-training sessions. Climbers of all abilities and styles will truly appreciate these shoes after just one day with them. The Defy is a must-have for every climber who wants a comfortable shoe that fits and performs superbly out of the box.

Inspired by Team EVOLV design feedback and TRAX Rubber Co. technology, the Evolv Evo Climbing Shoe is a new all-around, super versatile performance shoe. With a comfortable and anatomical fit, the Evo can be used as an all-around long route shoe when sized comfortably, or if sized tightly they can serve as a performance shoe. The Evo is equipped with highly functional features like the perforated, pliable toe rand rubber that delivers a sticky toe hooking surface or crack climbing help, and technical heel hooking ridges. The molded TRAX XF-3 outsole was engineered to have variable thickness gradients of the sole to conform to the foot and provide perfect anatomical support and stiffness and sensitivity where needed. The molded sole of the Evo Climbing Shoe is thinner in the arch section for better arch fit and ridged and thicker in the heel section for mild cushioning and the semi-stiff half-length midsole underneath enhances edging power.
