These are way too nice to wear on the trail. That was my first impression of the Toro Evo GTX Lo from LOWA. With a dark gray leather upper, these hikers look as nice as some of my dress shoes, but their trail performance really sets them apart. The Gore-Tex nubuck keeps my feet dry, the tread provides great traction, and the lightweight midsole pulls together a durable and comfortable hiker.
Available at Schnee’s and the Round House; $190.
