Maybe not quite what you’re after, but red brick safety boots are one of the few options that are a rare combo of: mid ankle, trainer-ish, but with Kevlar toe and midsole. They’re the right balance of durability vs lightness for me. Can’t be chewed hiking about with 2kg of boot on.
Popular in the Netherlands but rarely see them here.
Since about 2 years I have Cofra Stoppata, of which the other models look similar to the one you mentioned: http://www.cofra.it/en/products/footwear/footwear-lines/1-footwear/49-old+glories?
Interesting, some of their models look almost identical to the red brick ones. Aluminium rather than Kevlar toe. I’d be interested to see what the weight was. My current pair are looking a bit tired after 5 years, I replaced the insole to get more life out of them, but a new pair are on the horizon. Choices, choices. . .
