Timberland Hypertrail 2009

The Timberland Hypertrail multi-activity shoe weighs 1000g (pair, size 11); up to size 15 men’s and 11 women’s; very breathable upper; reasonably aggressive Vibram lugs for traction in mud; stiff toe box for protection; supportive heel cup. But sole flex is not as smooth as higher-priced options; no waterproof lining; mesh extends low on sides so wet feet highly likely.

 

Verdict: The Timberland Hypertrail is good for walking in dry conditions, say when trekking.
