A lightweight hiker made for the modern trail, the Gateway Mid offers an adaptable sneaker versatile enough for day hikes, overnighters, and road trips alike. Engineered from water-resistant materials with recycled content and grounded in a slip-proof Durabrasion Rubber sole, this mid-rise silhouette delivers blister-free comfort no matter the miles.
Nice design, simple but catchy. Shoe is very comfortable and quite light but also surprisingly sturdy. Only downside is if your foot is narrow, the area between the toe and the beginning of laces may rise up, or ripple, rather than fit tightly over the foot - seems to be a characteristic of the material the upper is made from.
I've used this product for light hiking and disc golfing through heavily wooded courses. The shoes are true to size, a little low volume, but comfortable. Soles are soft and are showing a little wear. But makes a great light hiker.
I wear an 8.5 and have narrow feet to start and these are really narrow at the base of your toes. I struggled to even get the boot on my foot. The fabric of these is not elastic at all so you won't get much stretch either. It almost seems like a design flaw as I've never had to worry about a shoe being too narrow. Length seemed fine.
Really like these shoes - they are lightweight and comfortable and so far have held up for some quick hikes and just being outdoors. Haven't had them for too long so can't speak to their longterm durability, but so far they are great!
Spoiler: I'm a woman. I normally hate the design of womens' hiking boots and these were the perfect alternative for me (or basically anyone who doesn't like "traditional" hiking boots). Lightweight, not too bulky; a perfect camping boot. I normally wear 9/9.5 and and went with 7.5 to leave room for thick socks.
