Timberland Pathlite Low GTX 2010

The Timberland Pathlite Low GTX weighs 820g (pair, size 11); Gore-Tex waterproof lining; mesh upper increases breathability; good price for features: good stiffness in sole for rocky terrain; reasonably aggressive outsole lug pattern for mud; well-cushioned sole; good heel support.
