Description

Lightweight shoes for hiking to classic climbing routes.

The historic Grand Teton is host to plenty of classic climbing routes with miles separating it from the road. Millet designed its nimble, lightweight Men's Trident GTX Approach Shoe to keep your foot comfortable on the trail so you're ready for the alpine ascent right when you get to the base of the mountain. This waterproof version of Millet's Trident Guide shoe features a Gore-Tex membrane that will keep your foot dry on wet, muddy trails. The 3D Aeromesh upper lets the shoe breathe so your foot isn't pooled in sweat halfway through the hike. Climbing-style extended lacing lets you dial in a precise fit so you're not slopping around in the shoe on uneven terrain.

The Trident's Heel Frame Trident heel stabilizes your foot and absorbs shock, and the heel counter provides support as you billy-goat up uneven trails. Impacts are further softened by the EVA midsole, and the dual-material insole that also features a Hygiene antibacterial treatment to keep the shoe fresh. Your foot is well-protected by the rubber-reinforced toe and side rands; the carbon synthetic reinforcements on the upper add abrasion-resistance. The high-traction Vibram outsole has Climbing Zone grippers to keep you on your feet when the trail takes a steep and rocky turn. This shoe has an anatomic shape for comfort. And an unrestrained flex means you can move up the trails fast in this sensitive shoe.

Useful, but only to the bipedal

  • Fit: True to size

Selling these as 'lightweight' is kind of silly. You're not going to mistake these for minimalist running shoes and you're not going to catch yourself mid-ascent marveling at how lightweight your boots are. When you lace these up on your man hooves you will note two things: (1) these are some pretty ugly shoes on my feet, and, (2) these are lighter than those waxed boots that Dad still dusts off before he climbs Mount Tallac on his annual mid-summer getaway to Tahoe with Mom. If those observations qualify these boots as lightweight then so be it.

Stiff sole, excellent traction, and the gore-tex works to keep water out [and in] as is the material's nature. You'll be grateful for the shock absorption when you see your friends bellyaching down the granite in cross trainers, but I wouldn't wear these unless traversing some serious stone for an extended length.

But for maybe being a little narrow in the toe box the footwear fits as expected. For reference, I wear the exact same size in these shoes as I do in your everyday Nike, Asics, and Puma [shoes].

I've owned these ankle baring boots now for five or six months now; worn 'em wet and dry; and put in some good miles. That being the case, I'm confident in the construction of the clodhoppers and I think the pair of 'em will last me more than a few seasons as long they're used for appropriate adventuring.

Whether these are a good buy for you will ultimately weigh heavily on the purchase price. There is nothing about these shoes that make 'em standout among the competition, so if you find a cheaper alternative that checks all the same boxes then go for those shoes. I'd recommend these but not at the MSRP.

So far I'm stoked with this purchase!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I was not able to try this shoe on before I purchased it. But got turned on to Millet by trying on a similar shoe from this brand, the Rock Hopper. It fit so well I took a chance. Been on 6 full day excursions with this shoe. From long hikes to light mountaineering. Fits true to size and breath well for a gore-tex shoe.

How does this shoe size? I've read conflicting reviews on sizes. Some say it's right on with typical shoe sizes and some say to order a full size bigger because they run small. I normally wear a 10m and don't normally wear very thick socks. Would it be safe to order a size 10?

Hey Walt,
Sorry for the confusion- unfortunately it kind of depends on your foot size and shape. It sounds like you would be fine trying the size 10.0 out, they should work!
Feel free to contact me with any further questions at any time- kweiser@backcountry.com

Will you be getting 10.5 men's size any...

Will you be getting 10.5 men's size any time soon?

Hey Dalvay,
Unfortunately we currently do not have any more size 10.5 ordered to come in at this time, sorry about that!
