Returning in the popular purple and pink shell, the Cochise 95 W is a great hike and ride option offering all day comfort for the medium width foot. It has a three buckle design with a large, lockable power strap which acts as the fourth buckle. This can then be released when hiking to allow more motion in the cuff. It comes with din compatible soles, but a touring sole with Dynafit inserts can also be purchased. A softer plastic is used over the instep to allow easier access.
Pro: Great value for a hike and ride boot at that price
Con: It is a little heavier than some competitor models
