Backpacker Magazine – March 2009
The stylish Ahnu Mirage is tough enough for the backcountry or streets.
Whether we were hiking New England trails or tromping the cobbled streets of Europe, the leather, waterproof Mirages proved supportive enough for 25-pound, all-day loads. The locking, one-pull lace system made them easy to pop on and off when going through airport security, and the stylish stitching separates them from drab-looking competitors. Best for medium- to high-volume feet. $100; 1 lb. 8 oz. (8); ahnufootwear.com. Reader service #103
