Orvis Approach Shoe

Hiking, boating, wet wading, flats—the possibilities are endless in the
remarkable Men's PRO Approach Shoe. Versatility is an understatement for
this incredibly lightweight, quick-drying, yet rugged multi-purpose
shoe. The strength and reduced weight come from seamless PU cage
technology that provides superior drainage, as well as durability. An
integrated Ariaprene® sock prevents debris from entering the shoe while
providing excellent ankle support and breathability. Continuing the
innovative PRO footwear story is a the Michelin® Outdoor Extreme rubber
outsole that provides 43% better wet rubber traction and 25% higher
abrasion resistance than the competition. Removable 3D molded OrthoLite®
insole rests on a single density phylon midsole for all-day comfort and
enhanced "river feel." Integrated lace hood allows laces to easily tuck
away. Men's sizes 7-14. Weighs 23 oz. in size 10.
