Your daily runner’s high just gained some additional traction thanks to the Omni-Grip sole of the low-profile Columbia Men’s Switchback Shoe. This rubber sole uses a multi-directional lug to adapt to roads or ridgelines as you pilot the breathable, mesh Switchback mile after mile. Thanks to Techlite construction in the heel and mid-sole, there’s no weight penalty for ergonomic support or protection from the elements. Accelerate your excursions with the versatile Switchback.

Slip into the Switchback™ for low-profile support that looks as good on the street as it does on the singletrack. Columbia’s revolutionary new Techlite® heel moves dense stabilizing elements to the outside (putting softer material directly against your foot) to provide a cushioned and conforming fit to alleviate pain and irritation where trail runners told us they felt it most. Omni-Grip® traction on the rubber sole grips rocks, dirt, mud and just about anything else you encounter on off-road adventures. Breathable mesh and a soft material in the flex zones mean superior comfort with great agility and ease of movement. The gusseted tongue keeps out rocks, sticks, and dirt while light, sinewy overlays offer additional protection without adding unnecessary bulk.
