Product Description

A cornerstone of our new Patagonia Footwear collection, this sturdy, lightweight hiking and approach shoe has a durable, breathable mesh upper and a Vibram® Ecostep™ (30% recycled rubber) outsole with edging and smearing zones. A reinforced rand and external counter assure purchase while edging. The EVA foam midsole has 15% recycled content and the 70% recycled synthetic-cork footbed has a carbon component with antimicrobial qualities. Imported.



I tried these shoes and the fit is great for a medium to high volume feet. Mainly the heels are nice and roomy. BUt I can see that people with a narrow heel would have some lift problems.
NIcely built, seems to be a quality shoe. The vibram outsole is sticky and with just enough traction for the rough road leading to the climb. I would not climb with it, like I would with D7's for example.
The styling in these shoes are kwel!

Travis_I love them so far..

Voted 5/5

I bought these for myself as an X-Mas present and love them so far. Nice styling, nice fit and feel. I have only done a couple of hikes so far but they feel to have good traction, maybe not as sticky as my 5-10 Camp 4 but pretty good for all vibram sole.

WMLComfy hikers!

Voted 4/5

While they certainly are more on the hiking end of approach shoes, I've climbed some easy technical rock in these and not been too concerned.

What does concern me about these shoes is the durability - the eyelet and other more-or-less cosmetic things like that, displayed wear and one eyelet pulled entirely after two or three trips out.

In all, comfortable as all get-up and climb well enough to get you to strictly technical terrain where you can throw the sticky rubber shoes on and get to dancin'
