Pros Stylish, stickyLightweight, comfortable, supportive, climb wellAwesome balance of hiking and climbing abilities, great supportSupportive, durable, very sticky rubberDurable, great traction in dirt and mud, excellent value, workhorse approach shoe
Cons Average climbing performance, not very supportiveSynthetic uppers not as durable as leatherRelatively heavy and bulkyHeavyHeavy and bulky, especially when carrying on your harness or in a pack
Bottom Line These skate shoe style kicks are cool, but not our choice for big walls or big approachesOnly snow and ice can stop these approach machinesSpecializing in heavy loads and big wall climbing, this model is also a well-rounded favoriteIf you find other brands run too wide, these may be the best choice for long approachesThis workhorse of a shoe is good to go on everything from alpine scrambles to El Cap
