The Patagonia Boaris is a skate-style shoe. It is made of pigskin and a number of recycled products. We found it to be a street shoe and definitely not for big hikes. For an urban style shoe we lean more toward the Five Ten Chase or for an all around shoe (street and trail) we recommend the Five Ten Guide Tennie or the Five Ten Camp Four that also performs on serious big wall style climbs.
