    Beat the heat and escape to the trails.

    When the heat in the city is too much to handle, grab your Ahnu Women's Sugarpine Air Mesh Hiking Shoe and enjoy cooler climes at elevation. Breathable and moisture-wicking mesh inside and out on the Sugarpine keep your foot from feeling like sweaty piece of overheated meat. The EVA midsole offers cushioning while an integrated nylon shank gives your arch a bit of assistance. Nementum Low Profile technology guides your foot forward, whether you're laden with a 30-pound pack or walking without weight. A plate underneath your forefoot fends off bruisers of broken rock when walking through a scree field. Rugged Vibram rubber on the bottom gives your sole some grip when the going gets rough. Since the path less traveled can be a bit murky, self-cleaning lugs leave you more time to enjoy a cold one at the end of your hike.

    From Trail to Town

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 8.5

    Ahnu is derived from the Celtic goddess of balance and well-being...the Air Mesh live up to the Ahnu name by balancing performance and style in a lightweight, comfortable, & feminine shoe whose casual style transfer well from trail to town.

    These are super lightweight thanks to the mesh uppers, 4 eyelet lacing, and cotton laces, and have a similar design to a fitness shoe. To me, these feel almost as flexible, comfortable, and supportive as the Nike Free. The inner support is comfortable and provides moderate arch support, which is enough on short moderate day hikes, but I found that with pack weight added they tend to lose comfort and not provide enough support.


    The soles are fairly supportive and firm underfoot thanks to the Vibram soles, yet they're extremely flexible in the forefoot/toe area. The soles flexibility excels on well-managed trails and moderate terrain, where they provide a running shoe-like fit and stride, but they lack support on Rocky, uneven, loose, or demanding terrain.

    The Air Mesh feature a fairly shallow and not very aggressive tread. They tend to hold traction on well managed trails of mostly dirt, but on steeper grades and loose rocks, they don't hold up well.


    The bright mesh uppers are soft, stretchy, breathable, and the colors definitely pop, but I've found that your feet do get a bit too cool when the temps drop down. As far as the uppers water resistance, I found them to keep moisture out in dewy fields and puddles, but they did fail when crossing 2-3 inch streams.

    Overall, the Air Mesh are casual, feminine, and stylish in fit and design. Across technical outdoor applications, they're far less versatile. These are best for day hiking and dog walking with crossover wear into town. I found these to be a bit on the large side...I'm normally a solid 8.5, and easily would have been comfortable in an 8.

    Emily,

    Spot on review! The shoes are built for "lighter" activities in warm / dry conditions :-) We offer people looking for something a bit more rugged the Montara in both a low and boot. Will we also have a new backpacking boot very soon!
