Boot Review: Tecnica Vortex Mid TCY

Light and supportive all in the same package

Do your feet want a lightweight shoe, while your ankles desire more support? Make them both happy with this bargain midcut, a standout in our Do-It-All shoe review. "Stable on a steep 3,000-foot descent," one tester reports, praising the no-slip heel and ankle-hugging collar. The leather/synthetic uppers have a waterproof liner, the tread bites hard, and a shock-absorbing heel makes slickrock seem mattress soft. Also available in a low-top. Best for medium-width feet.
