Patagonia makes excellent trail shoes that work well on concrete as well as in the trail.

  • Collect mud easily
  • Hard to clean mud off sole

I've owned these for a couple of years and have used them for walking around town and day hikes where I'm not carrying a backback. If I were to hike in a hot climate these would be excellent, likewise if I were to do something like the Camino de Santiago. For winter use, I would leave these at home even with the Gore-tex just because of the mud issue.

The Patagonia Drifter A/C GTX Hiking Shoe is a waterproof and breathable low-top hiking shoe that's supportive enough to haul a light pack and sporty enough to wear around town.

The low-top shoe's waterproof/breathable air mesh and nubuck leather upper keeps you cool, while the highly breathable bellows tongue keeps out debris. The GORE-TEX(R) gasket construction and inside fabric lining seal out water and increase ventilation. Additional features include an EVA footbed shaped to cushion your foot, Patagonia(R) Air Cushion Plus in the midsole and heel that absorbs shock, and a Bi-Fit? (80% post-consumer recycled) polyurethane waterproof insole board for stability. Vibram(R) Trail Ecostep(R) outsole with 30% recycled rubber grips slick surfaces.


Get out there and pound out some miles in the Patagonia Drifter A/C Waterproof Mid Hiking Boot. The Drifter keeps your foot cool and dry with mesh and nubuck panels in the upper. A Patagonia Air cushion soaks up the shock with a little help from an EVA footbed and a polyurethane insole board.
