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!
