Columbia’s Street-Inspired Hiking Shoe Boasts Waterproofing & Ballistic Nylon

Sep 14, 2020

Category: Gear

Outdoor footwear and its street-focused alternatives have begun to collide, and with a company like Columbia in the midst of this transition, we knew that it wasn’t long before we were gifted with a contemporary model that could be worn anywhere from the runway to the trail. The most recent addition to the company’s functional footwear lineup is none other than the Facet 45 OutDry — a versatile trail shoe that channels stylistic design choices from its city-savvy counterparts.

To amplify the shoe’s presence on the trail, Columbia has introduced a unique, waterproof OutDry material, as well as ballistic textile technology, welded overlays, and integrated laces for a one-of-a-kind fit. The shoe’s grippy outsole is complemented by a stabilized internal heel, foot-cradling cushion, and a Techlite lightweight midsole, providing wearers with unparalleled comfort and support as they put in the miles on their favorite switchback. As a result, the shoe adopts an inherently “futuristic” look, bringing it in-line with may of the single-piece offerings that we’ve seen from companies that focus almost exclusively on urban street-style examples. Regardless, the Facet 45 looks to be equally as viable on the trail as it is in the city, making it an attractive proposition for those who are looking to bridge the gap between the two. Head to Columbia’s website to pick up a pair of your own for $150.
