We've caught wind that the Summit Mid WP is no longer being manufactured. You can still purchase the HOKA ONE ONE Tor Summit WP which is a low cut version of this boot. For $160, the Tor Summit WP shoe weighs in at 2.08 lbs, compared to the boot's 2.19 lbs (both in size 11.5).
While it didn't take long to convince us of this product's plush properties, we were initially skeptical of how it would perform across the other scoring metrics. To our pleasant surprise, it didn't disappoint. The Tor Summit Mid WP also finished above-average amongst lightweight hikers in stability, traction on wet and dry rocks, and water resistance. It was even one of the most lightweight pairs to "boot" (yep, we went there).
The lightweight hiking boot category found tough competition, and the Hoka models only beat out the Salomon X Ultra Mid 2 GTX by a few ounces, but we were impressed at how much comfort we got from such a light boot while testing the Hoka boots. Other boots shed weight in the sole, resulting in being able to feel more rocks while hiking in rough terrain.
