Columbia Sportswear Master of Faster Mid Trail Shoes - Waterproof

Columbia Sportswear is known for its rugged good looks and highly functional products. This mid height trail shoe does not let down. The mid ankle support is great comfort for times on unstable ground with a heal cup that cushions every hammered step. Lightweight, stylish, and waterproof this shoe is a great way to ween yourself off of those heavy hiking boots for a lighter more agile experience.

Because the shoe is waterproof there will be a problem with breathability especially in the summers heat and the lack of metal lace hooks instead of eyeholes where my only two gripes about the shoe.

A great buy for those with less than 35 pounds on their back looking for a quick get a way.
