Hiking Poles and pack weight?

@Ghaznavid hey Ghaz, you referring to their uppers or soles, or both? I’ve been looking at the mid-boot as a lighter weight waterproof contender (for wet cold winter wear) but concerned about that mesh upper; I always find veld grass slashes this feature across the toe-box, quickly.
I note the Grapheme sole ought to last. Ought.

Referring to the sides of the shoes. They start developing holes around 500km and are not usable by 600km. I’m used to getting 700km out of trail shoes, which is why this bothers me.
