Gear of the Year!

From National Geographic Adventure:

“…few models of footwear are so comfortable in mixed conditions and mixed use as the Tor Ultras. This hybrid design, one part boot, one part shoe, with its high ankle wrap and fat squishy padding underfoot, lets one travel through dirt, mud, and slop, over rocks and across tree roots, while running, scrambling, jogging, and hiking as well as any model we’ve tried. The eVent membrane keeps out the wet and cool better than anything else. The structure gives just the right amount of support—not too much, not too little. And at one pound, they’re light enough that you can put in decent running mileage….”
