The Columbia Granite Pass walking boot is a well built trail shoe that's lighter than it looks. Alf Alderson puts it to the test.

Overall Score
Light, rugged and comfy
Understated looks may not appeal to everyone

Despite its burly looks the Granite Pass is a surprisingly light trail shoe which features an independent lug pattern in the sole to provide traction and stability over a variety of surfaces.

The uppers have an ‘OutDry’ waterproof-breathable membrane to keep your feet dry and comfortable in poor weather conditions and dry and cool in hot, and it works well in warmer summer weather.

The Granite Pass has good heel and ankle support despite the low cut, and there's a general feel (and look) of ruggedness and stability despite the light weight.

The understated looks may not appeal to everyone, but for more traditionalist hikers looking for a plain, hard wearing shoe for summer hiking the Granite Pass is well worth checking out.
