This is a great approach shoe. I helped product test these and beat the crap out of them and they are still holding strong. Good rubber and Super comfortable. Definitely recommend these! Ian CB

Pretty random, not much of a review, but here's the link for those interested...

Looks like a solid shoe. Psyched to snag a pair when my Escapes wear out.

Looks nice. I had the Evolv Maximus 'approach' and climbing shoe from a couple years ago. It climbed better than it hiked for comfort, and this new shoe looks like it is better for the approach hike and probably not intended much for a climbing shoe. Woodchuck ATC

Nothin' beats this. Lightweight and functional. I wore these to my friends wedding in Tallahassee AND hiked to the base of Simply Read.

Yaaaaaaah!

These are very well made solid shoes. I work on my feet about 65hrs. a week and these are holding up great. Previous shoe was scarpa pro something high top approach shoe and these are holding up better and more comfortable. The scarpas may climb a touch better but not so much that it makes a difference for approaches. Evolves grab better on slab scarpas on edges. BETTER THAN ITALIAN SHOES. tim naylor

I wonder how they compare to the camp 4s...I put close to 100 miles in a pair before ditching them, loved them, but since they run $150 now, I haven't bought a new pair :/ alleyehave

100 miles? That's not much... Did the rubber wear off that fast? I'm looking for some light hiking and scrambling shoes that could do some easy 5th class. I had a pair of Scarpa Zens, but the leather split where it meets the rubber toe rand. Stupid design on their part. Great shoe otherwise.
