By "decent", I mean shoes that are equally suitable for beginners as they are for more advanced climbers. The models I mentioned are affordable, and provided that they are properly fit they will perform well on most types of climbs.
In addition, Evolvs are fairly well made and sturdy -- they are not prone to delamination and are generally more wear-resistant than other brands. I've had shoes from other companies (including very pricey La Sportivas) that fell apart for reasons other than regular wear-and-tear.
If you can find a pair of new Evolvs for less than $100 (~5000 pesos?), you're looking at an OK price. In the US, the Defys and Elektras go for about $80-90, which is pretty low as far as climbing shoes go. Shop around if you can, however. For instance, In Taiwan and HK I regularly found 5.10s (a generally mid-expensive priced shoe in the US) for almost 30-40% less than prices in America.
