A fairly light shoe that’s at its best on easier surfaces and good paths. It’s well-padded and very comfortable from the box, but the lacing doesn’t extend far down the foot and this, combined with a quite flexible midsole, made it difficult to get a really stable fit on steeper ground. A Gore-Tex liner kept water out well, and the high mesh content meant that they never felt too hot – great for overseas walking. Quite expensive but they do look good and therefore will make a top casual shoe, too.
