For longer hikes the combination of a DuraPU heel and lightweight EVA forefoot combined with a climate control footbed provide the support and cushion you need to climb with confidence later that day.

Fit: Runs small
Size Bought: 10
Out of the box these shoes are stunning. Style is great, comfort is exceptional with lots of cushioning and good side stability. The front is hard rubber to endure any toe stubbing on rocks. My only issue is I bought size 10 and they are a bit snug. My other pair of Garmont is also 10, and they fit perfect. I would trade for 10.5 but that size is sold out. Consider 1/2 size larger as these get narrow near toe box. Still, fantastic shoes and I hope to stretch them out a bit with use.
