Who should buy the Millet Amuri Knit

The Amuri Knit is a solid addition to Millet’s ever-expanding family of outdoorsy shoes. It is a solid option if you:

  • Prefer an approach shoe that is designed to be breathable enough for summer approach trips and protective enough for challenging excursions around mountain bases.
  • Prefer an approach shoe that gives hikers a bit more flexibility and creativity in their step.
  • Prefer an approach shoe that provides walking comfort over level terrain.

Size and fit

A below-the-ankle approach shoe for men and women is the Millet Amuri Knit. It comes with a slim profile, which provides the foot a snug enclosure with a kind of toe box that underscores precision. Wearers can achieve a secure lockdown in it via the shoe’s traditional lacing system.

Excellent surface traction and slip resistance

Thanks to its 4 Points Grip outsole, the Amuri Knit can stick to practically all sorts of backcountry surfaces with sufficient traction. Low-profile honeycomb-shaped lugs are built all around it to supply approach travelers with multi-directional slip resistance over loose-soiled earth. It comes in extra thin to keep the shoe’s weight at a minimum, all while enabling the user to pull off hiking and climbing maneuvers with enhanced agility.

Excellent edging performance

Its front tip, around the big toe part, reads, “Climbing Zone.” This feature, which is unique to approach kicks, delivers improved toeing precision and sticking power on edges.

Provides protection from terrain hazards

The Millet Amuri Knit promises to protect the foot from a variety of terrain hazards with its thick-yet-light midsole. It is made of ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA for short), which rivals rubber in terms of resilience and rebound rate.

Comfortable, supportive, and stable cushioning

Its heel section is slightly fanned out to give adventurers more help with support and stability. Millet engineers topped it with a cushioned footbed for additional comfort underfoot.

Excellent ventilation

Hikers-slash-climbers can expect to approach their rock destination with as much breathability as possible in the Amuri Knit’s knitted polyester upper. Its high-wear sections are imbued with Matryx fabric, which is a combination of hard-wearing Kevlar and nylon.

Easy to wear

Getting in and out of its moderately padded interior is a convenient affair, thanks to its pair of synthetic pull loops.
