True to its name

I just put about 30 miles in these in the Needles District outside of Moab and they did great. These shoes give you great grip on slickrock even if it has a light coating of sand or water. I went through a lot of sandy washes and didn't get any sand in the shoes, a problem I've had with other hiking shoes. I didn't get to test the waterproofing though.
