The Thatcher retails at £60 and is a perfect example of Patagonia Footwear's dedication to the environment as they are vegan friendly and are a part of the SmartStep which indicates that the Outsoles are composed of part recycled rubber. Here's some more technical specifications about the Thatcher -
Description The Thatcher has a collapsible mesh upper that's easy to hang off a harness or stuff into a pack – and it's light, breathable and abrasion-resistant. The durable Vibram® EcoStepÅ outsole (30% recycled) has a sticky toe for technical approaches. An air-cushioned midsole softens the ride; the synthetic-cork footbed (70% recycled) has a carbon component with antimicrobial qualities. Steel-shanked board lasting provides support and stability under a pack.
Patagonia footwear are the proud sponsors of the Keswick Mountain Festival.
