Trezetta Chinook Low

These are fairly heavy shoes that are only available in a unisex fit. However, the fit feels nice and secure and they’re pretty comfortable from the box, although watch out for the high ankle cuff, which may dig in a little at first. They’ve got a stiff midsole that will provide support on uneven terrain, and a Vibram sole that provides excellent shock absorption on hard ground, especially at the heel. The sole grips very well on rock, too. Mixed mesh and suede uppers will enable your feet to breathe, although they have a tendency to feel quite hot in warm weather, so watch out if you suffer from sweaty feet. There’s a waterproof lining to keep your feet dry, and a decent rubber bumper to protect from knocks and improve durability.
