A 2-in 1 Shoe That Goes From Tarmac To Trail 

Sizes: 6 to 11 | Colors: 3 total, including Light Blue and Anthracite | Lacing: Pull-tight laces | Key feature: Can handle light hiking, waterproof GoreTex lining

Unless you’ll be doing several days of hardcore walking or hiking, you probably don’t want to lug around a pair of bulky and heavy shoes. Lowa’s new Merger GTX Lo is a sleek and streamlined shoe that looks like a fashionable pair of sneakers that can also handle actual hiking. The GoreTex lining makes the shoes fully waterproof, while the synthetic upper ensures the shoe is lightweight and comfortable. The drawcord pull-tie laces creates a quick-and-easy on-off and, at only 300 grams, these lightweight shoes won’t weigh you down either.
