Teva Ossagon vs. Colombia Master of Faster

As a hiker there are three major things that I look for a shoes; first, durability – have a shoe that stands on rugged uneven terrain. Second, comfort – do a test hike to feel the comfort on your feet. Third, stability – in hiking a simple slip can cause big trouble so be on balance with your shoes. Below are the two trail (men) shoes to chose from, the Teva hiking trail shoes and the Colombia running trail shoes.
