Bottom line

In the areas of comfort and fit, the Amuri Knit from Millet is arguably one of the best the brand has ever produced. This incredibly lightweight approach-centric shoe is also a force to be reckoned with in terms of sticking performance.

That being said, the questionable durability of its grippy outsole sticks out like a sore thumb from its rather blemish-free resume. Nonetheless, the Amuri Knit is a solid addition to Millet’s ever-expanding family of outdoorsy shoes.

Good to know

-The Millet Amuri Knit is designed to be breathable enough for summer approach trips and protective enough for challenging excursions around mountain bases. Its rigidity is set to medium, giving hikers a bit more flexibility and creativity in their step.

-Its heavy-duty sole unit, which is made up of the shoe’s single-piece midsole and proprietary outsole, is capable of adapting to several traversal scenarios. Case in point: It has a broader rearfoot coverage for expanded support around the heel, and a rockered toe for added walking comfort over level terrain.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

The Millet Amuri Knit’s upper is rounded out with the shoe’s lace-up closure. It consists of 8 pairs of eyelets (all with plating for longevity) and a sturdy lace made of interwoven synthetic cords.

-This approach shoe has an all-synthetic sibling in the Millet Amuri.
