Reg: $89.00, SALE From $69.97

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.

        Comments about Evolve Sports & Designs Defy VTR Rock Shoe:

        If this is your first pair of shoes, then you will probably be satisfied. These shoes do basically everything ok, but nothing super well. my pair were from a few years ago, and after about 6 months they smelled so bad when i brought them to the gym employees started looking for a dead rodent because of what they smelled,... it was just my shoes, but I've heard they have largely changed this problem (I did not have this issue with any of my other 8-10 pairs of shoes).Expect regular beginner shoes, and your get what you expected.

                  great shoes for reasonable price! unlike most shoes, this felt true to size and got comfortable very fast. the sole seems to be a little improved from the previous iteration of the model.
