Great light hikers for technical terrain

Okay, these might not be a "pure" approach shoe, but they are fantastic as a hiking shoe.

I was on a multi-day trip in the Sierra where I was hiking up and down through boulder fields routinely. The Camp Fours are SO awesome on this kind of technical terrain where slipping could have serious implications. You can put actual miles on them too...they are comfy with good stiffness so you don't feel every little rugosity on the trail.

I have had mine over a year and they look almost brand new. They are burly.

The only bummer is one lace sorta shredded (the outer layer of the lace came off but the inner layer has hung tough for many more miles). Hey, 5.10 is sending me a new set of laces for free.

Following up: I have had these now for over 3 years and hammer them summer after summer in the Sierra. I am on my 3rd pair of laces, and the tread is definitely worn, but these shoes just won't die. I'm going to order another pair soon for peace of mind.
