Our best selling men's model just got an upgrade. The Defy VTR appeals to new and advanced climbers alike as a comfortable, great-fitting shoe that performs exceptionally well. These are very comfortable shoes with a bedroom slipper feel and design. The soft midsole enables good smearing and sensitivity, while an asymetric toe profile allows good performance, even for new climbers. The upper is perforated for added breathability. These shoes feature the VTR 3D rand system. Variable Thickness Rand Technology is a new technology that features strategically varying thicknesses in the toe rand (see below).
