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.
