Description

Toddle through town or hike the hinterlands while letting your ankles breathe.

The Chaco's Men's Hinterland Hiking Shoe is a versatile and robust low-cut shoe that gets it done on the trail or in town. You can walk from the Eiffel Tower to Montmartre, hike amid the spectrum of fall colors in Isle Royale National Park, or enjoy strolling through the neighborhood in comfort and style.

The Hinterland offers the same high level of support as Chaco's midheight boot with the same name, but with a low-cut ankle. Like its taller kinfolk, this shoe sports the removable Luvseat footbed, a lightweight EVA midsole for cushioning, and an ESS shank provides torsional support over rocky ground.

Your feet won't lose contact with ground control due to deep lugs and a vigorous tread constructed from EcoTread rubber. EcoTread rubber contains 25% recycled rubber, which helps minimize your carbon footprint even if your physical footprint is a size 13. While this earth-loving sole won't prevent you from ice-skating down the driveway in winter, it does offer stability and grip on slippery slopes, sandy trails, or rain-slicked roads. If the path you chose is littered with gnarly bits, the gusseted tongue prevents low-lying debris from entering your shoe. If the princess wouldn't sleep with a pea under twenty mattresses, why should you hike with a pebble under your heel? A polyester mesh lining works to remove excess sweat and heat from your foot, as no one enjoys overcooked tootsies.

Winter Bar Hopping Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

My feet are always cold and I am not making any new friends when I wear my big BOGS, in AK things would be different. This shoe fits the bill for everyday wear around town. Definitely warm and burley this shoe made it through New Years which is impressive, that was not a short walk through the snow. I could see myself doing some light biking or hiking with these but, they run a bit big. I am 9-9.5 and the 10 gives me some heel slip. Overall I like the shoe and wear it often, definitely really comfortable.

Great Around Town Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

These shoes are very comfortable, offer great arch support, have a very beefy mid sole and a wide toe box. They look good and are perfect for walking around town or hitting the trail for a short hike after lunch. I wouldn't use these as a backpacking shoe or a performance day hiker though. The heel is very loose because there isn't really a pocket to hold it in place and the Eco Tread Rubber sole, although deeply lugged, does not have the same versatile performance offered by Chaco's traditional Vibram soles and are not good in rocky conditions. The sizing is pretty true to size as I wear an 8/8.5 and went with an 8 in these.

Not bad, but still work to be done

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

The great part of this shoe is that it has great overall arch support and cushioning. The other parts of the shoe that I will be discussing reflect what needs to be changed for the future for it to be a good shoe no matter what the situation.

After using these shoes several times I have noticed that the overall heel pocket needs to have more of a cup shape put into it, compared to what it currently has. With the shape it currently has it doesn't allow you to go on steep terrain without your heel lifting and potentially causing rubbing that would have you get blisters after wearing them a couple of hours.

Another thing about the heel area is the Achilles area that would protect your Achilles from moving around and getting stressed. There isn't enough protection in this pocket area to hold your Achilles in place.

The next part of the shoe that I would strongly recommend be changed is the out-sole, or would just recommend people get micro spikes whenever they are in a snowy/slippery area. These soles don't have a single ounce of grip and if you are even in a little bit of snow you will notice yourself hesitate and get into a more crouched position because of how uneasy you will feel. Don't even think about wearing them on the trail during winter unless you have micro spikes. You can cause yourself injury and cause uneasiness with others around you because of how you look wearing them.

Keep in mind that the sizing is a little weird. I am used to how Chaco's sizing is, so I went with my traditional size 9 and they fit fine. I couldn't go any lower or higher. With running shoes I will normally run with 10.5's with an extra 1/2 size for overall space to allow my forefoot to splay out.

Not bad, but still work to be done

Great all-around shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

To start things off, this is just my initial impression. I've haven't had these for too long, but will update this post in a couple months. First thing I want to say is that these run true to size. I normally wear a 12/12.5 and the 12 in these fit just right. They seem to have all the things a good hiking shoe should have: a stiff sole with deep lugs, a hard toe, solid construction and stitching, and a rigid heel cup for good support. I've had Chaco sandals for years and I anticipate the quality of these shoes will live up to their high quality control.

Overall, I am very impressed with these shoes. As soon as I put them "through the wringer" I will update this post. Feel free to ask any questions as I'd be happy to answer them.
