In reply to UKC Gear: .....and like most 'approach shoes' they'll be rubbish on UK approaches of steep damp grass and dirt/mud. What an approach shoe needs is the Vibram mountain sole seen on many winter boots - decent thick tread for the muck, and a smearing zone for rock.
In reply to Toerag: If you read these do have a Vibram outsole....which is plenty good enough for a lot of British conditions.
Obviously sticking the sole from a winter boot on a lightweight approach shoe would not be practical.
In reply to Sir Chasm: Probably lots of us have trainers or approach shoes with soles rather like these. For really muddy conditions you want hiking boots or wellies, but these look good for drier weather or rocky approaches. I'd be more interested in how much protection they give around the sides; they've obviously used a sole with no sort of side bumper to make it as light as possible. I find trainers like that fine on some ground but like something a bit beefier if trekking over scree or loose rock.
In reply to TobyA: Looking at the pics, the tread depth is about the same as my Spotiva B5s and 5.10's dotty stealth sole, ergo they will be utter rubbish on anything other than rock. They'll even be rubbish on dry gravelly paths such as those found around euro crags. Steep grass & bluebells will become a succession of bruised arses with shallow tread like that!
