Going out on the trail without wearing proper equipment can be dangerous to say the least, which is why you should always pick your apparel and footwear carefully when planning your adventure. When it comes to shoes, the leather Peak Freak Mid by Columbia is pretty much ideal, and that’s because it includes just the right technologies to make your trip as safe and as comfortable as possible.
The full grain leather upper is as durable as they come, and it is able to ensure great support. Moreover, the shoe’s OutDry breathable waterproof construction keeps water away from the feet, while an Omni-Grip non-marking traction rubber outsole offers plenty of grip for those slippery surfaces. We should also mention the Techlite midsole, as it is responsible for exceptional cushioning and high energy return. These rugged shoes for men are available in a Cordovan/Bright Copper colorway, which will look right at home on the trail.
