Metal wires anchored to the sole support the lace fastening on the El Moros, and with the single Velcro strap fixing to a single panel that wraps both the heel cup and entire outside edge of the shoe, a snug fit is even guaranteed. A narrowing toebox means these aren’t for everyone, as wide feet will need housing elsewhere, but triple-layer panels on the sides of the heel, and tough patches either side of the toes are very abrasion resistant. A well-padded collar and tongue are comfy, and the suede upper offers low-key looks. They can take an age to dry out: when wet, the already weighty shoes just become more so.
Good overall and very supportive, a soft (trainer-like) EVA layer makes for comfy walking, but the narrow fit prevents full marks.
