Locarno GTX Lo
1 review


“Life – and weekends – are short, so play hard,” could be your motto. Maybe you choose day hikes instead of multi-day outings because you want to squeeze some climbing, a paddle or a mountain bike ride into your action-packed day. With that in mind, we lightened-up our ATC concept to create an extremely versatile, modern outdoor shoe that you can wear to office, on your day hike and then when you hoist a few post-hike pints. Although light and sleek, the Locarno remains true to its core outdoor roots, featuring essential design details to keep you moving comfortably on the trail. Its new Inverted MONOWRAP® frame construction with a hybrid DuraPU™/DynaPU® midsole offers superb support, rebound and shock absorption, and the lower profile outsole offers a nimble, close-to-ground feel. Durably waterproof/breathable.

I've long wanted a shoe that was rugged enough for light hiking & scrambling on unpaved trails and terrain, but that could be worn in a restaurant and to the airport without looking silly. This is it! All of the competing shoes I've seen look far more like a hiking shoe; this looks more like a understated sneaker. It strikes the right balance between sure footing off road and comfortable walking on concrete. It's not super comfortable or super sure footed or super stylish. What it is super at is being good enough at all of those, so you can go on a trip with one shoe. For comparison, Ecco's Track II Low, which I've also owned, is a bit more comfortable to walk in, but less stable off road and, to my eye, clunkier.
