rated 4 of 5 stars Хорошая обувь, очень качественная. Немного тяжеловата, но это не проблема. (Translation from Russian: Good shoes, very high quality. Bit heavy, but it's not a problem.) Сейчас эта обувь очень дорогая, а качество желает быть лучше. (Now these shoes are very expensive, and wants to be better quality.) Full review

1569 Shoe

rated 5 of 5 stars The New Balance 1569 is a midweight hiking boot designed to take on rugged terrain. A well-made, solid shoe, it comes in wide widths, runs small. I purchased the New Balance 1569 (“Mens Walking” MW1569BR) at the first of the year. I was looking for some hiking boots that were more than just ‘sneakers with off-road tread’ and less than ‘serious’ backpacking boots.

At 7.4oz for the pair, they're light and easy to justify carrying… Full review

I actually tried them on in store, then purchased online elsewhere as it was about $10 less expensive. I use two options when hiking: boots and trail running shoes. For those hikes with less elevation or less rocky surfaces, I go straight… Full review

Minimus Trail

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Lightweight and comfortable for moderate hiking and wearing around camp. No major complaints after a week of hiking in Moab. Worth the $ in my opinion. I bought these for hiking for a week in Moab. The weather started off cooler and I really wanted warm socks on so I started the trip with my old running shoes and thick socks. Once temps reached 50+ degrees, these were my go-to, do-anything shoes for the rest of the trip. I put about 20 trail miles on these shoes with no discomfort. The hike down… Full review
