The Columbia Men’s Crestwood Hiking Shoe is our favorite footwear for all-day versatility. Whether you are out for a day hike or trail run or need to run some errands in town, these shoes offer a superb combination of support and style that’s up to the task. At well under 2 pounds, this pair is light enough to take jogging. We also love its extra-wide base, which adds stability to each step and reduces the likelihood of rolling an ankle on uneven terrain. The Facet 60 is comfortable, and the gusseted tongue makes this shoe easy to slip on from a tailgate or a tent.
There are a few details that kept this model from the very top of the category. We found that the mesh is breathable but also not totally waterproof. Though we didn’t run into any issues, multiple users reported issues with durability, primarily around the adhesive between the sole and the upper. All in all, between their comfort and tennis shoe aesthetic, we would recommend this model to anyone looking for a versatile pair that they can use for activities besides just hiking.

Question: are this suited for hiking with a heavy load? added weight of a backpack?
Answer: While it is an “all-purpose” hiking shoe with good foot, arch, and sole support, as a low-cut design it does not provide ankle support. For backpacking trips on relatively smooth trails, it would probably be fine. But if you are going to be hiking on rough terrain with a heavy pack, consider a mid or high ankle hiking boot (there are many choices).
Question: Why are the red trim shoes $10 less?
Answer: Probably a less popular shoe so it’s to get rid of the stock

Question: Are the insoles removable
