Kayland Convert Hiking Shoes

Kayland Convert Hiking Shoes – A fresh new hiking shoe.
If you are in the market for a pair of hiking shoes that offer plenty of support but don’t want a pair of excessively large hiking boots, then the Kayland Convert hiking shoes will certainly meet your needs. These newcomers to the hiking shoe world have definitely brought with them some interesting and cool features to say the least.

One of the coolest features of the Kayland Convert hiking shoes is its eVent membrane. The eVent membrane is as waterproof as Gore-Tex and equally as breathable, if not more. This eVent membrane lets the Kayland Convert hiking shoes release sweat, while still keeping them dry.

With the Kayland Convert hiking shoes you also get plenty of cushioning and support. The EVA foam create a nice lightweight support that can carry up to 40 pound packs comfortably. To make sure your ankles don’t think about rolling, the Kayland Convert hiking shoes laces reach near the heel to help lock it into place near the rear of the shoe.

The plastic eyelet and cord that help lock the heel into place offer up plenty of opportunities for snagging on brush. Other than that, the Kayland Convert hiking shoes are pretty sweet and very affordable.
