Its usually hard being all things to all people, but this hiking shoe/tennis shoe/work shoe manages to please everyone. The durable upper is a breathable blend of synthetic and suede. The insole wicks away moisture to keep your feet dry and yep, breathable. The rubber sole provides great traction when youre on the go, wherever you might be. DeWALT has thought of everything, even including reflective patches for nighttime visibility. We know, its pretty much perfect.
