M Crest Mid B Dry Gunmetal Side

So your JMT permit finally came through? Awesome! But 211 miles of unpredictability can make for tough decisions. We worked with our Ambassador team to dial in the details so you can focus on important things like “leaves of three, leave it be.” Strategically placed upper overlays, speed lacing, a functional collar, and combo PU/EVA midsole help you keep things pointed in the right direction.

Fit Tip: Length runs true to size. Form hugging heel cup, sculpted mid-foot, and a roomy forefoot & toe box.
