Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Materials: leather synthetic lining
Use: light hiking, aproach scrambling,moderate to easy climbing, street wear
Break-in Period: a week or so

Your friends will hate you when you send their project in your street shoes. Very durable soles for approach shoes. The leather wears a little quick, but for the money, well worth it.
