Great shoes for everyday use and trekking.


  • Comfortable
  • Design
  • Grip


  • Not durable

I have used this shoe for everyday and in mountains. 

It fits great and is very comfortable. 

The grip is great and shoes could be used for some easy climbing. 

I have used them for approach to the routes in mountains and descent.

Quality: I am not satisfied with quality. I have used them in mountains few times and descended scree once and got a few holes in the leather. 

I have used these shoe for few months.

Although I am great Millet fan, I wouldn't recommend these shoes as approach shoes to alpine climber. On the other hand, these shoes are great for some hiking on established trails.

Let the Millet Men's Friction Approach Shoe keep your foot prime and ready for the crag. Millet constructed the Friction's low-cut upper out of reinforced leather to keep it surprisingly durable for how lightweight it is. The Hygiene footbed is quick to dry and antimicrobial so the Friction won't end up smelling like your old pair of climbing shoes, and the dual-density EVA midsole absorbs shock and offers all the comfortable support you need to make it to the crag and back without an aching foot. A rubber rand at the toe and heel as well as reinforced rubber at the toe keep this shoe strong for many years. Millet equipped this approach shoe with partially recycled Vibram EcoStep for excellent traction over slabby, slippery surfaces, and Climbing Zone places extra rubber over the toe to ensure proper grip on steep approaches.
