Five Ten Prodigy - Light Hikers

You wouldn't expect Guinness to make anything but stout, and you shouldn't expect Five Ten to make a shoe that can't climb. The Prodigy has obvious rock-shoe features: sticky Stealth C4 rubber on the outsole and a profile that allows tight-quarters foot placement without pinching wide feet. The Prodigy can also hike, thanks to a cushioned midsole that's rigid enough to provide stability on uneven terrain and an even flex courtesy of grooves cut into the midsole.

Bonus: Harder S1 rubber adds durability to parts of the sole where you need less traction.

Bummer: Black and yellow like a bumblebee?
