The history of the birth of the snowshoes rEVVOlution

EVVO snowshoes are a technical innovation created in the heart of the Parc Natural du Pilat (42), designed for all snow-lovers.

The brand saw the light of day in 2017, led by Hervé Piron and Joel Varaine, both directors of MPI, a local company specialising in plastic injection moulding, accompanied by Olivier Reboullet, a designer passionate about sport. Together, they wanted to put the skills and expertise of their teams to the service of lovers of outdoor activities by offering them innovative and intuitive solutions.

EVVO wanted to give snowshoes a new turning point in their history. An overshoe in innovative fabric, easy to put on, offering protection and thermal comfort.

An intuitive adjustment system facilitating its adjustment over any type of shoe. An ergonomic design certified by podologists for a natural stride. A unique light, silent sole, with true all-terrain grip developed in partnership with Michelin, guaranteeing adherence and durability.
An innovation which won the Observeur du Design label in 2019.



EVVO was born in the heart of the Pilat Regional Nature Park (in the Loire department). Its teams have worked on the development of innovative products, respectful of the environment, meeting the needs of users, while preserving the practice environment.

In this objective of respecting biodiversity and improving circularity, EVVO is committed to ensuring that all new developed products are 100% recyclable.

In this sustainability approach, our Snowshoes are all repairable. The choice of materials is focused on low environmental impact from bio-sourced or recycled materials, without reducing the performance of our products. The sole is a perfect example: we have worked with Michelin R&D teams to offer you a biosourced 90 sole

In the same objective of circularity, we provide a collection service for your used products so that they can be recycled and used to create new EVVO products. Finally, we also offer second-hand products!
