Product Highlights

Winner of Outside Magazine's "Outside Gear of the Year" award in 2010, the Patagonia Footwear Drifter A/C trail shoe performs on a wide variety of terrain. Durable leather and mesh construction make the Drifter A/C lightweight, agile and breathable, yet sturdy and supportive enough for long day hikes, lightweight backpacking and multi-sport activities.

The Drifter A/C's air mesh and Nubuck leather create a comfortable fit with great breathability in hot weather. A breathable bellows tongue and polyester air mesh lining help keep debris out of the shoe and allows sweat to move out of the shoe and dry quickly. The Drifter A/C has a full volume toe box and medium arch/instep support.

Under foot Patagonia's Air Cushion Plus provides shock absorption and an 80% post consumer recycled Polyurethane insole board makes the Drifter A/C supportive and stable on uneven terrain. A Vibram Ecostep outsole, made from 30% recycled rubber, grips rocky surfaces and offers excellent traction.

Sold in pairs, the Patagonia Footwear Drifter A/C trail shoe is available in men's full and half sizes. To keep the leather on this shoe in good shape and to prevent water absorption in the upper for the life of the shoe you should apply a fabric and leather conditioner as well as a waterproofing treatment (both sold separately).

    Likes: size was just as described, stiff sole, breathable, perfect for summer trail/running shoe

    Dislikes: nothing so far

    Likes: These hiking shoes strike me as well-made and sturdy. I have hiked with them for about 30 miles -- a typical break-in period -- and have found them to be really comfortable. The biggie for me is to maintain ample toe room. I CAN tie these shoes for firm support at the heel while leaving the toes room to move.

    Dislikes: A buyer should realize that the tread on these shoes is quite aggressive. If you need to grapple for traction, they will help you. I would not wear them to work on hard floors!

    I have not yet worn them in the rain. I expect my feet will get wet.

    I am suspicious that they will cease to "breathe" the moment I step into deep mud and coat that mesh with goo. Until that happens, I am enjoying these light and airy hiking shoes!
