Keep your foot comfortably protected as you make your way out and back all the while enjoying the beauty the backcountry offers.

    What do you think about this product?

    Have questions about this product?

    Super lightweight but strong boots

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    These are just the shoes that I was looking for: comfortable, lightweight, strong materials. I just started using them but they feel durable. I have wide feet and they fit nicely. I'll certainly recommend this for medium to long hikes.

    Do these have a protective toe?

    Hey Andrew,

    These don't have a steel toe if that is what you mean but the toe is protected by an extension of sole's rubber and nubuck leather. Hope that answers your question. Hit me up at if you have any other questions or need help setting up an order.
