Technical, breathable and durable, Oboz Hyalite cross-trainers take peak baggers on day-long ascents or low landers on tough boulder field scrambles. Rugged nubuck leather and breathable mesh uppers feature thermoplastic urethane (TPU) overlays for added structure and support. Welded forefoot cages and molded TPU heel cages lock feet in to deliver technical yet nimble multisport shoes. Nylon mesh linings wick moisture, dry quickly and further enhance breathability. Anatomic EVA footbeds and dual-density EVA midsoles provide cushioning over a long day of hiking or a short burst of high-impact activity. Nylon plates offer torsional stability and protection underfoot, increasing surefootedness on varied terrain and reducing rock bruising. High-friction, nonmarking rubber outsoles grip both wet and dry surfaces with ease.
