Brasher Calusa XCR

An odd fit, as the upper is very stiff and notably pre-shaped, but might be exceptionally comfortable for the right feet. The Calusa is a very stiff shoe that takes the sharp edges off rough ground, however it feels a little too rigid for its low-cut style. Good grip on most surfaces, though.A stiff and uncompromising walking shoe that’s best-suited to rougher going higher up the mountain. It’s nice and light, but check the fit carefully.
