Technicals Nimbus 2009

The Technicals Nimbus multi-activity shoe weighs 884g (pair, size 11); mesh upper for maximum breathability; stiffened toe box; reinforcement around shoe for more durability. But no waterproof lining; outsole lug pattern is very shallow and easily clogged so not ideal for grip in mud; very bendy sole unit offers minimal support.

Verdict: The Technicals Nimbus is a stylish, low-cut shoe for lounging outdoors and travel, but others offer better performance.
