This boot is a transition between a running shoe and a walking boot. The company designed this boot for people who intend to move quickly and efficiently over mixed terrain.
I wore the boots everywhere. It didn’t matter if I was wearing it to wash the car on top of concrete or taking it out for a long hike on rocky trail. I put this boot to the test.
