Helly Hansen The Korker 2010

Helly Hansen’s The Korker weighs 852g (pair, size 11); mesh upper for good breathability; leather reinforcement adds durability; aggressive outsole for good grip; very close fit for dexterous movement. But less stable platform than some; not as good for running as dedicated trail shoes; not as stiff as rock-orientated shoes; soft toe box offers little protection.

The Helly Hansen Korker is a very lightweight, stylish shoe, but others offer benefits if you‘re looking for a performance edge.
