Outdoor Scene Ascent

Soft and spongy and limited arch support left feet feeling tired and vulnerable. Quite narrow at the toe, but the upper was soft enough to compensate, so it didn’t give any real discomfort. The Vibram sole didn’t feel as stiff and substantial as some. The low ankle cuff and minimal midsole support makes them best for low-level walks only. Lightweight.
