Russet

The namesake Sphinx emerges like a ship’s prow from waves of peaks. At 10,800 feet its summit block is no skyscraper, but don’t let that fool you – The Sphinx is an all-day commitment of lung-burning goat paths and gully scrambles. Fifteen miles, unpredictable weather, 4,500 vertical, and a deceptively long round-trip interval make it one of our staff’s favorite shake-down hikes for evaluating new product. All-day nimble comfort, with the right amount of stability and breathability? Check! Awe inspiring views? Double check!

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