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.

Cute, but stiff and not wide enough

I returned this product before using it

I really wanted to like these - they look really sleek and like something I'd wear daily. But for my specific feet they are just too narrow in the toe box. They also are a lot more stiff and a lot less padded than the Sportiva TX3s I eventually purchased in the same size. Some reviews here said they are comfortable for hiking, but for me and my wide feet they just didn't seem like they would work.

Great hiking shoes

I usually wear a size 9. However, with this shoe, I had to go up to a 10.5. Once I did that, they fit amazingly. I wore them once on the treadmill before going out hiking. Hiked 8, 10, and 14 miles in three straight days and had no issues whatsoever. I love these shoes as they did repel the water (not waterproof) and they are relatively light. And...I did not feel any of the rock edges we were hiking on.

Super Comfy Right Off The Bat

These are super comfortable right off the bat. They slip on like socks but the soles are super sturdy. I've already worn them for miles and miles at a time and haven't gotten a blister. My only complaint is that the top part of the shoe (the laces) is pretty stretchy, so if you're actually going to be doing some rock climbing in these, jamming your foot in cracks, they're not super bomber feeling.

I love these!

These are my first ever approach shoe and I'm in love. I took them on the first spin in a slot canyon and they did better then my expectations. I also wore them on a walk in the rain, in the city and my feet didn't get wet, I was surprised. Cons- they don't stayed tied very well, and I don't like my shoes tight while I hike, so leaves me with no length in the laces to double knot. The "sock" like top part is kinda annoying. I would totally buy these again and recommend to friends. I'm typically a 9.5 or 10....glad I went to a 10, they fit perfectly.

Great fit and good friction

I loved these shoes right of the box, which is unusual for me. They stick great, and they are are a huge upgrade from my running shoes. The round laces don't stay tied, so make sure to double loop them. The biggest bummer is after only a week of approaches there are small holes on top of the toe box where the rubber meets the fabric. I did not climb in them, only hike, so hopefully they will continue the rubber further across and that will improve their durability.

Great moderate weather shoe

This is a well made shoe. These are great for colder climates or approaches that include water obstacles. In hot and humid conditions, they can get a little sweaty and more difficult to take on and off due to the "sock" lining at the ankle, but again, this is a great plus for colder weather.
