Here's what other sites are saying:

While the Columbia Descender Shoe for men was intended as a walk-off climbing/bouldering shoe, the versatile features and support make it a popular multi-sport shoe both in and out of the backcountry. Whether you keep it in your ascent pack or wear it in the shopping mall, you'll appreciate the traction of the blended high-traction rubber and Omni-Grip sticky rubber throughout the sole. Columbia even added a rear carabineer loop in case you need to clip your Men's Descender Shoe to the outside of your climbing backpack.

The Columbia Men's Descender NM Shoes mix the sticky-rubber grip of climbing shoes with the comfort of sneakers. This means that, after a long multi-pitch route or a technical hike, you can hike back to the car with comfortable feet and without face-planting when the descent gets rocky.
