Probably one of the best rugged trail shoes on the market
on May 8, 2018
These shoes are fantastic! Really!! I've been waiting to write a review until I've had a chance to thoroughly test them. I live in Colorado and have used these mostly to hike the flatirons in the Boulder area. It's a lot of rocky and steep uphill terrain. However, I also hiked some VERY rugged terrain on the closed off, rain washed route to the top of Cerro Chato volcano in Costa Rica. In all instances, these shoes have completely exceeded my expectations.
Where my friends are slipping and sliding, these shoes ensure a firm grip on most any surface. The second you take these shoes out of the package, you'll see why. Each yellow fixture on the bottom is a lug of well designed hard sticky rubber and the sole of the shoe is a rock hard plate designed to prevent your feet from bruising on any sharp objects you might step on. Extremely lightweight and breathable too.
The only downside is the heel section can be rough on your feet. make sure to wear a evenly thick sock. Meaning, don't wear a sock with extra padding on the heel (in relation to the rest of the sock), or ankle socks. Both can cause uncomfortable rubbing and blisters.
