Redesigned for 2004
From the manufacturer:
By popular demand we’ve brought back a low top Guide Tennie. This shoe can hike 10 miles into a climb, then ascend a 5.13 route (or better yet, a thousand feet of fourth-classing). We’ve studied previous versions of our classic “Guide shoes,” and have created a new GT that’s better fitting, better performing and better looking than ever. The new last has a rocker, which makes walking efficient and comfortable.
