For day-trippers who hit park paths or rolling hills
These "sleek, sporty," waterproof shoes "feel secure on both rocky and slippery slopes," testers say, with rugged rubber outsoles and "excellent traction." The shoe's cozy lining "maintains great breathability," so you won't get a case of hotfoot. The lightweight foam midsole "provides good stability" and "cushioning that's just right": It's "supportive without being rigid" and "solid enough to feel like a hiking shoe, without the weight."
