BEST FOR: Desert dwellers. THE TEST: With lots of cooling mesh and a one-hand speed toggle for the laces, the lightweight Colorado is a sport-sandal-running-shoe mashup. The minimalist upper is all about heat dispersal, but it’s mated to a moderately lugged sole that we found plenty grippy and a deep heel cup that kept our ankles from rolling. While the airy mesh made for cool feet on sweaty hikes, it let in some grit on sandy trails. And the soft toe box means you either have to tread carefully in rocky terrain or risk jamming your toes. These minor gripes aside, testers loved the Colorado for moving fast in hot weather. THE VERDICT: This summertime day hiker can double as a runner in a pinch. 14 oz
