Rebel Approach Shoe
Compared to Evolv's other approach shoes, the Women's Rebel Approach Shoe is more durable than the Cruzer and more casual than the Zender. It's ideal for climbers who want to frequent sport crags, climbing gyms, and hangouts in the same shoe. The Rebel's vegan upper is ruggedly water-resistant to keep clean on a rainy, muddy day.

I bought a few pairs of approach shoes to try as I'm looking for something that will be sticky, yet supportive enough to wear while lugging a heavy pack full of trad gear for a mile or more. I tried a pair of the tan (latte) in my usual street size. They fit true to size, felt initially comfortable and supportive (the insole has some arch support), and I love them aesthetically. (Except black laces instead of white would have been better.) Love that they're vegan. The uppers seemed durable. About the same stickiness I've had in other approach shoes. Most retailers carrying this shoe didn't have any user reviews yet, but I did notice that that Evolv website describes this shoe as much more casual and more for streetwear than for outdoor crags. Outdoor Gear Lab also had some good insights from testing the men's version, which was mostly that they weren't great for hiking, which is a huge need for me. I was tempted to keep them just as a casual street shoe and as an option for short approaches, but, you know, money and priorities. So based on the additional information I found on other sites, I'm returning these and trying some La Sportivas next.
