Ride the elevator with CEO Steven Sashen.
For a casual dayhike, a heavy, stiff, technical hiking boot is overkill. The new DayLite Hiker weighs just 10.2 ounces for a men’s 9, and only 9 ounces for a women’s 7.
We made the shoe with the same foot-first, natural movement philosophy of all our shoes and sandals. This shoe has a wide toebox, zero-drop, and is low-to-the-ground for balance and agility. The super-flexible sole lets your foot move naturally, and there is an eye-catching lacing system to secure both your heel and midfoot.
The DayLite Hiker is designed to handle the kind of hikes that make up most of what we do. It works best with non-technical trails where a thick, heavy, stiff boot is way more than you need.
It’s designed to let you “feel the world” and connect with your environment, thanks to its light weight and flexible sole.
The huarache sandal-inspired adjustable heel strap and midfoot straps help you get a just-right fit.
