There are also two new sole types called Trail Grip (5mm lug's and agressive, quick clearing edges and tread pattern) and the Trail Speed sole (4mm lugs with a more light weight running tread pattern). Water proofing is provided courtesy of Gore-Tex XCR in the Apex and Meridian models for all weather excursions.
Basically, you're going to find a model that'll suite your purpose, whether it's a crag shoe or a trail shoe or even down the pub!
