If you want to buy a single shoe for all those unanticipated hiking and running opportunities, these are the only option.
Put these on when you board your flight, or climb in the car. Wherever you arrive, and whatever you find there, this shoe will handle it with style and support.
I recently ended up in the Southwest on a business trip, and thankfully wore these as my travel shoes. At the end of my four days in the region I had climbed a total of 12,000 vertical feet (some technical), forded countless washes and streams, ran 15 miles and attended three interminable boring meetings. I didn't bother wearing the shoes to the meetings.
Without these shoes I would have been staring at those mountains from a conference room instead of scree scrambling like a madman.
Do yourself a favor and buy these puppies!
