User Review: Raichle Switchback GTX
Materials: gtx, leather/cordura
Use: lightweight hiking
Break-in Period: About 30 seconds (no kidding)
Price Paid: $119
I posted the review of the Sundowner II a while back.
I traded them back to REI for the Switchbacks cuz the Skywalk tread on the Vasques were making my wet-weather hikes very scary/slippery/dangerous!
The Vibram lugs on the Raichles are awesome, the weight is light, feels like a slipper, and the price was right.
I wore a 10 in the Vasques but had to go to a 10.5 for these. Hopefully they'll work out fine.
