Velour leather and mesh uppers with waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex lining. Meindl Contagrip Trail sole unit for optimum grip and protection. Cupped heel stabiliser and toe protector.
A great-looking shoe with a lovely, sporty look, these are very comfortable to walk in, with a soft yet supportive upper and an easy-pull lacing system that gives a really secure fit with no slipping at the heel. The midsole is one of the stiffest on test, so works well on gnarly terrain, and the flex across the toes helps spur your feet forward. The chunky sole offers great shock absorption, and the aggressive lugs provide excellent grip on rock yet shed mud well too. A Gore-Tex lining will keep your feet dry and the high mesh content in the uppers helps keep them light and breathable. A reinforced bumper does a great job of protecting toes from knocks. In a nutshell:
A great-looking shoe that’s as at home in the hills as it is on the high street.
