Go Anywhere Shoe

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm on my third pair of these shoes - two low tops and one high top. As the name implies, they have exceptional ventilation. On trails with fine dust, it works through to my feet. Other than that, they're great for everyday wear, hiking with lighter packs, scrambling (good traction), hot weather due to the ventilation or wet weather due to the fast drying (I prefer a Goretex sock to the built in Goretex lining that is too hot when not getting wet). I've worn them on week long trips with a light pack and one pair of Smartwool socks and finished very happy with their performance. I'm going to buy some ultralight gaiters to see if they help protect the shoe on scree slopes and morning dew on the grass.
