Our testers have pounded these shoes from the slot canyons of Utah's San Rafael Swell to the top of the Swiss Alps. The verdict: Excellent rigidity for off-trail edging, roomy toebox for all-day comfort, and bomber construction that includes a wraparound rubber toe cap. Underfoot cushion is a bit lacking for long days with heavy loads, but for all-purpose fastpacking, these shoes are a bargain. Best for medium-volume feet. Also available in waterproof and midcut models.
