One thing you can almost always count on during your summer ascents is an afternoon thunder shower. Be ready with the Chaco Men's Holbuck Waterproof Hiking Boot. Since it's made with taped seams and a water resistant suede and PU coated leather upper, you won't get your socks wet when the trail gets damp. When the sun finally decides to come back out and burns off that little bit of rain, the mesh lining will let your feet breathe so you won't feel suffocated when it heats up again. An EVA midsole makes that 14 mile scramble to the summit a bit more comfortable, meanwhile the Ecotread sole gives plenty of traction over boulders, shale, and mud.
