Great shoe first time shoe, I got them fairly snug and they worked great for me! They held up well, the rubber didn't wear too fast and they had a decent life. I really enjoyed them and now I've moved on to my next pair of Evolv shoes.
The Defy does exactly what it promises...delivers great performance for an enrty level shoe. It has a stiff sole which provided great support for standing on the smallest edges on vert and slab. This coupled with its hard sole rubber provides great performance on really small holds and on longer climbs. It is a very comfortable non specific fit which means it can be worn all day without discomfort to the feet even when very downsized (like I wear them). The easy double strap closure system means security while also making them easy to put on and take off between pithces. They are a great training and gym shoe and the heel is good enough to do even hard boulders. I have even been able to send hard toe hook problems in them. A great shoe for the gym or long day in the harness on a multi pitch.
