RigSend Reviews the Defy


“The Evolv Defy is a bit ubiquitous and is perhaps the most popular first shoe in the market today. So when Evolv sent me a pair to review, I wasn’t sure what I was going to say. That was before I started climbing in them though. After two months of use and abuse, I not only think the Defys have earned their place as the axiomatic beginner shoe, but they also make an excellent second pair of shoe for climbers of all ability levels.”

Mountain Gear’s “Mountain Blog” Reviews the Astroman

“Finally, my new Astroman’s arrived! I couldn’t wait to try them, and had been patiently awaiting their arrival. Having sized them a bit bigger for more comfort, the ability to wear socks for alpine or winter climbing, and the ability to heel-toe for off-widthing, I was elated to get them.”
