These approach shoes are really comfortable and durable. The soles provide the right combination of traction and grip, so they perform great on trail and rock. They are supportive enough for long alpine approaches, while still being lightweight. They are super well constructed and long lasting shoes.

After years of trying to find an approach shoe that fits well and performs, I finally found one! This shoe is super supportive on long approaches and durable too. I’ve also been amazed at how well they climb! I sized them to fit like a glove with just enough length so my toes are fine on long descents. I feel like they’ve molded to my feet perfectly. (I've got narrow feet) I almost always wear them when I’m route setting in the gym and am constantly impressed with the moves I can pull off while wearing them. The rubber is super sticky and they edge really well too. I’m definitely getting another pair of these soon… the treads are almost gone. You can even wear them with gaiters since there’s space on the sole for the bottom strap! Love!

Best approach shoe I've ever owned. As a climbing guide, I'm really hard on my shoes. Come winter time, I spend my time traveling and climbing. These shoes come with me everywhere I go. They are comfortable enough for all day wear, super durable and long lasting, incredibly supportive and sturdy, and they perform really well on technical approaches and even easy slab/crack climbs. I'm on my third pair now, and I strongly reccomend these shoes if you are looking for one approach shoe that does it all.

I'm in the field six to seven days a week in the summer months running up and down talus and approach slab. The Boulder X keeps me moving with confidence and is just what I need when the terrain turns technical.- Norie Kizaki, Colorado Mountain Guide
