The lightweight Patagonia Men's Splice Approach Shoe gets you to and from climbing crags without a problem. Its canvas upper provides the breathability, suede leather keeps this shoe together for many approaches, and Dri-Lex mesh covers the tongue and collar for extra airflow. The self-centering tongue keeps debris out, stays put, and wraps your foot for extended comfort. Patagonia also gave this shoe a cushy EVA footbed with an odor-resistant Aegis Microbe Shield treatment, a dual-density EVA midsole for support, a sticky rubber sole for traction, and rubber bumpers at the toe and heel to protect your foot from the trail.
