Columbia Sportswear Master of Faster Mid Trail Shoes - Waterproof

Sizing: Feels true to size

Width: Feels true to width

Pros: Good Cushioning, Lightweight, Ankle Support, Good Arch Support

Cons: Poor Breathability

Best Uses: Mixed Terrain, Rocky/Unstable Terrain, All Weather Conditions, Muddy Conditions


Columbia Sportswear is known for their rugged good looks and this mid height trail shoe does not let down. The mid ankle support is great comfort for times on unstable ground with a heal cup that cushions every hammered step. Lightweight, stylish, and waterproof this shoe is a great way to ween yourself off of those heavy hiking boots for a lighter more agile experience.

Because the shoe is waterproof there will be a problem with breathability especially in the summers heat and the lack of metal lace hooks instead of eyeholes where my only two gripes about the shoe.

A great buy for those with less than 35 pounds on their back looking for a quick get a way.
