From casual strolls over sidewalks to serious sprints over dirt-covered trails, the Columbia Men's Flightfoot Hiking Shoe provides the comfortable support you need. Weighing in at just 8. 5 ounces, the Flightfoot is seriously lightweight so you can take flight on your ultralight hikes, summits, and adventure races. Its mesh upper material ventilates your foot while you cover miles over a hot desert trail, and a rubber screenprint over the mesh adds protection against stones and sticks without adding noticeable bulk. The Flightfoot combines a close-to-ground feel with underfoot cushioning for all-day comfort whether you're lacing up for an outdoor adventure or simply walking to class. Its Techlite midsole brings a surprising amount of comfort and support while keeping the weight down at the same time. The midsole is also antimicrobial so your shoe won't stink after a few days hiking through the Canylonlands. The shoe's Omni-Grip sole handles any terrain you throw at it whether it's a flat trail in San Fransisco's Bay Area or the rugged backwoods in Indiana.
