Columbia Fyter

This multi-activity shoe features men’s sizes up to 14; women’s to size 10; mesh upper for maximum airflow; reasonably stiff heel cup for support; heel end of sole is nice and stiff; reasonably aggressive sole lug pattern for mud; okay for running. But forefoot and toe flex is very soft and limits comfort on rocky ground; soft toe box limits protection on rocky ground.

Verdict: Buy it if you want a sporty style for valley walking and occasional running rather than anything more performance-driven.
