The Oboz Scapegoat Low shoes are a versatile, breathable, and light weight hiker. These have been perfect for the summer and fall temps here in the Arizona mountains. The breathable mesh allows them to dry quicker than your average hiking boot if you happen to get them wet and they allow your feet to breathe and stay cool when hiking in the dry deserts.
The tread on the shoes provides enough grip to help you travel through sand, rocks, and even muddy terrain. I have put quite a few miles on these shoes and feel comfortable in saying that I have for the most part switched from a heavy hiking boot to a low cut hiking shoe. I still keep a pair of boots in my footwear arsenal, but trail runners are slowly out numbering my boots. The lighter weight allows for less stress put on your feet and joints while hiking and makes huge difference in how my feet feel at the end of the day. If you hike 3 miles or many, these shoes will take you as far as you are willing to push them and beyond. Learn more about the Oboz Scapegoat Low shoes.
