Here is one of those shoes that is perfect for living in Steamboat Springs. Anything can happen on any given day. A blitz to the local crags, maybe a quick hike up Fish Creek, or a soft pedal around town, or a full on camp trip into the Zirkel Wilderness for a few days of fun. Anything can come up anytime so you need the footwear to let you get it done.
The 5.10 Camp Four is perfect as your everyday (including work) shoe. It hikes great offering great foot protection from stones and roots. It bounds around and over boulder fields easily with its sticky rubber soles. You can even wear it climbing up moderate rock wall routes and it smears with tenacious and secure grip. In other words, here is a shoe that will hold up to lots of mountain day use and abuse.
The Camp Four features a molded PU external heel cage that adds rear foot support and stability (ie. ankle protection). This extremely stable, secure shoe also has a lace-to-toe closure that can be worn relaxed for a long-distance fit, or tightened for climbing and scrambling. The great thing about lace to toe laces is how you can fine tune your fit… open the toe box, lace it tighter near the top for better heel hold, or any variation between the two.
