END Footwear Stumptown LT
Here's what other sites are saying:
END Stumptown LT boots have what you need for the trail without the weight and complexity of traditional hiking footwear. These boots are ideal for fastpacking, day hiking and even urban exploring. Environmentally Neutral Designs (END) questions every material and process that goes into manufacturing, striving to minimize environmental impact. Durable ripstop nylon and nylon mesh uppers are highly breathable; synthetic leather overlays provide structure and support. Rubber toe caps provide protection for uppers and toes against bumps and abrasion. Polyester and natural bamboo fiber are blended to offer moisture-wicking and antimicrobial linings. Compression-molded EVA midsoles feature 10% recycled EVA content and supply cushioning comfort for extended wear. Structural thermoplastic urethane plates deliver support, stability and rock protection; plates are co-molded into midsoles, eliminating use of cement. Trail Radius durable carbon rubber outsoles contain 25% recycled rubber regrind and supply solid traction on all types of terrain.

END created the vegan-friendly Stumptown LT Hiking Shoe to fill the needs of activists who spend all their time either on the trail or thinking about being on the trail. This super-lightweight high-top uses a mix of recycled EVA and virgin EVA to create a somewhat sustainable midsole, and bamboo-infused synthetics in the upper for extreme breathability. A molded protection plate gives long-lasting support and END's Trail Radius Regrind Outsole smears rock and cuts dirt equally well.

The Stumptown LT Hiking Shoes by Environmentally Neutral Design aka END, are the first in eco-friendly, sustainable shoes made exclusively for hiking and traveling on the trail. END designs their shoes with clean, simple and classic lines with the most minimal of materials, and focuses their shoes to be comfortable, durable and made from sustainable materials, especially in comparison to other hiking shoes. The Stumptown LT was created by END as their ultra lightweight shoe that provides stability for long hikes or fast and furious backpacking trips. Made with an upper that has precise patterning and a mixture of synthetic materials that give breathability, fit stability and comfort. Constructed with a protection plate for torsional stability and stone-bruise protection. The protection plate is cut from sheet stock ESS and then co-molded with the mid-sole which allows for natural forefoot flex and eliminates the need for glue.
