Forget the bulky boots.

This lightweight, tough shoe is primed for staying light and fast when moving through the mountains, and it's versatile enough to handle everything from hiking to easy fifth class scrambling.

This is a very comfortable pair of shoes. a little bit hard to put on or take off, but after my feet inside, I can feel the shoes wraps my feet and support the feet bottoms. I have to say before this pair of shoes, I am a big fan of Keen. But now, I am very happy to buy it, of cause Keen is easier to put on. I do not know how it resists the water, because have not the chance to test. But hope it works. anyway, very good one.
