With a totally synthetic upper and no waterproof lining, these are very light shoes, and whilst that means wet feet when wading through puddles or crossing wet grass, it also means a lot less effort on longer walks. Any water that does get in is quickly expelled, and the Ion-Mask treatment means they never feel soggy and do dry out quickly. They have a reasonably stiff midsole, so don’t feel too out of place high up the mountain, and grip is good on a variety of surfaces.
