Eco-friendly shoes used to be fine for backyard lounging, not the backcountry. With its new footwear, Patagonia makes it clear such restrictions no longer apply. Here’s why. Performance: The outsole’s narrow profile and stiff edges boosted my confidence on sketchy downclimbs, while the upper’s durable leather felt slipper-soft after a few days. Sustain-ability: The Huckleberry’s outsole, midsole, and poly-cork foam footbed are all made with recycled materials or factory-floor scraps.

Bonus: It nails the Patagonia ethic—hardworking, yet handsome enough for casual Fridays.

Bummer: Testers with low-volume feet found the lacing finicky—achieving a snug fit required futzing.
