Mission LT Approach Shoe

Out of Black Diamond's new collection of approach shoes, the Mission LT is a lightweight, technical hiker designed for fast-and-light missions on technical terrain. Its rockered-esque profile tackles steep sandstone and scree fields like a powder ski in soft snow. The BlackLabel sole's rubber is fine-tuned for traction on mountainous terrain, and a plethora of rock-protective features keep your foot ready for the climb after tenuous trails. Black Diamond's engineered EnduroKnit upper is remarkably durable and comfortably breathable in warmer weather.

Great shoe

I wore this shoe in Yosemite and it was great for the valley and walking to the walls… so a great approach shoe haha. Doesn’t seem super sturdy so I would recommend still bringing climbing shoes for the climbs and hiking shoes for the hikes. Nice shoe all around tho for the in between activities.

Great Shoe

Really solid shoe, great grip and stiff enough to do some mild/moderate edging. Solid enough shoe to even do some mild trail running if you're like me and on enough of a budget to not have both haha.

Great Shoe

Just spent a week in the Winds and this shoe was comfortable for the 15 mile hike in and performed well on the approaches and descents through steep slabs, scree and talus fields.

Excellent approach shoe. I have a slightly narrow foot and the fit is perfect. very sticky rubber that is holding up well after several months of wear. Comfortable enough for everyday wear.

Solid

Super well-built and sticky. Used mostly for long day hikes but comfortable enough to wear anywhere. They do run a bit on the small size.

Favorite Approach Shoe

It took me a while to hop on the approach shoe train, I felt like my trail running shoes functioned fine in any situation where I would use them. I ordered a size 9, usually wear a size 9.5, and wow the security these provide on approaches and scrambles is game changing. I like the tight fit, and they're still comfortable to wear after moving around in them all day. Not to mention they just look sweet. Definitely recommend these shoes!

Good Technical Shoe

I'm a 10.5-11 depending on the shoe. Went for an 11 and it fits great with some room in the toe for walking downhill and not jamming your toes into the front. Great grip and they did dry much faster than my wives hiking shoes after we did some wet canyoneering in Zion.
