Leather losing lustre for athletes

Great article, thanks for sharing. I just did 400 miles of backpacking in the Appalachian Mountains this spring in synthetic trail running shoes. It's great to know I can boost my performance while also staying true to my ethics.
The Mountain Masochist by Montrail was named Gear of the Year by Outside Magazine. All synthetic and I've read some pretty good reviews on them, including one guy who took them hiking for 800 miles before retiring them. I sell them at my vegan shoe store and the customers love them.
