One shoe to do it all. Designed around the logic that your only gonna have one pair of shoes with you, besides your quiver of rock shoes, the Switchback will act as an excellent sticky multi purpose approach shoe. Fold the heel down and have an easy to slip on and off clog, and it's built to flatten out nicely for your summit dash pack. Versatility, compatibility, lots of friction. I'll take two please.... a right and a left.
