The shoe is light enough to be worn all day, but rugged enough to withstand the toughest outdoor treatment. Great in the wet and breathes well.


  • Stability
  • Well cushioned
  • Dry


  • A bit stiff in the sole until worn in

The size runs a tad small, for me I usually take a US 12-13 and I needed a UK 13 in this shoe. The toe area is roomy and caters to a good thick walking sock so go up rather than down in size. The sole is a bit on the stiff side, so buy them and wear them in in plenty of time for that long hike.  

Excellent breathability and well cushioned the shoe is at home on the street or the trail. It appears to be well made and should last well beyond many competitors in the price bracket.


previously retailed for:
$74.00 - $80.97
