Hot, dry conditions call for a special type of hiking shoe. Designed with the southern section of the Pacific Crest Trail in mind, the Trail 2650 Campo kept our feet from overheating on hikes in the Tetons and climbing approaches in Idaho’s arid City of Rocks, largely thanks to a lightweight perforated upper. We suffered no blisters even when temps climbed as high as 90°F, and the Campo dried quickly after stream crossings thanks to water-draining ports in the midsole (no waterproof membrane on this shoe). On the way down Disappointment Peak in the Tetons, the Vibram Megagrip outsole held on tight and let us move quickly through the rocky terrain. A lightweight, ¾-length TPU shank and rock plate position the Campo squarely between trail runners and hiking boots, with enough stiffness for long days with an overnight pack while still staying nimble for scrambles.
