since i spend quite a bit of my time either running, hiking or tooling around various fire roads, what better way to take advantage of the terrain with only one shoe than these suckers. the upper is a stretchy mesh which is virtually seamless, so the fit is snug yet with room to roam. plus, it has a one-tug lacing system designed for speed, with a hidden pocket to hide the laces in.
the sole looks like a traction beast, with miniature hang glider cutouts designed to plant in the toughest conditions. i hope to take these puppies out for a spin this weekend...
