THE GOOD
This is a very stylish hiking boot and one of the best in the day hiking category. The Pulse II is perfect for day hiking and versatile enough to support up to a 25 pound pack for an overnighter.

THE BAD
The lining is a step up from standard mesh but is a bit warm on hot days.

THE FIT & COMFORT
This is one of the most comfortable boots available. The Pulse II has a standard foot shape (slight curve and medium width) the same as Nike ACG and The North Face. The arch is low and the toe is slightly narrow.

THE PRICE
List price - $135.00
Average price - $109.95

OTHER NOTES
Smoke (the rich tan color) is the most popular color style and almost impossible to find for under $124.95.

Available Sizes: Men's 7-12, 13, 14, 15
