Gear of the Day: Evolv Shoes

From tents and backpacks, to headlamps, knives, footwear, jackets, and apparel, our “Treasure Hunt: Roanoke” event on July 11th in Roanoke, Va., promises to be one of the biggest gear extravaganzas ever envisioned! From the prize pool, here’s today’s gear pick of the day. . .

Gear of the Day: Evolv Sports Shoes

Why you want to win this gear! Evolv Sports is sending its Pontas and Escapists shoes. The Pontas, a Chris Sharma favorite, have the performance for sending “the world’s hardest climbs.” Made for bouldering, sport and gym climbing. The Escapists are lightweight approach shoes designed for moving fast on the trail. A “high friction” outsole offers an edging zone around the toe area when the terrain gets steep.
