Robust enough for light backpacking, the abrasion resistant leather and textile upper locks feet down securely for serious stability. Tons of adjustability in the lacing system lets you get a perfect, customized fit on top while the Techlite underfoot cushioning creates a comfortable, supportive bed to prevent fatigue for your hard-working feet. The substantial Omni-Grip outsole lets you tackle wet rocks and other slippery terrain with confidence. When you need a mid-height shoe thats light enough for trail-running but rugged enough for your occasional light backpacking endeavors, the Talus Ridge has you covered.
