- Vibram sole
- Laces up nicely
- Back tab to pull shoe on is too small
The shoes are solid, well made, and can handle a lot more than they are designed for. I used them to carry packs off-trail in scary steep terrain as well as around town. The shoe is very lightweight, but has a solid Vibram sole underneath, giving it the ability to multi-task. It could use more support for super heavy loads, but again, it is not designed for that.
Buy this shoe if you want something lightweight to wear around that can handle those last minute trips to the trail. This shoe might also make a good extra trail shoe for an AT thru-hiker.
