That's why they're using such a durable material they've got overlays here but. Then they have some other kind of textile materials synthetic materials.

Constructed of a few different materials but overall it's a really durable suede. That suede is going to last a long time. When you're encountering sharp rocks going to show some wear and tear and. That's why they're using such a durable material they've got overlays here but. Then they have some other kind of textile materials synthetic materials. Around the heel that you can really snug in and then again you have that rand because all the way around so that protects the suede even more and you've. Got the same material in the back overall the fit is pretty narrow these. Are approach shoes climbing style shoes. So they do want to give you a nice snug fit especially up here in the toe box. Again you can adjust the lacing for more. Comfort but if you're not used to approach style or climbing style shoes if you're just used to hiking shoes they're going to seem pretty narrow but.
