This versatile, all purpose hiking boot performs incredibly either on the trail or around town. With a comfortable compression-moulded midsole and breathable upper, these shoes are built for efficiency on a range of different terrains.
Using a combination of both suede and mesh materials for the upper, these shoes are both durable and highly breathable. The mesh lining allows air to circulate freely to the feet, increasing the ventilation and keeping you cool in the process. Suede leather and canvas also feature throughout the upper, preventing sharp rocks, roots or branches from damaging the shoes while you're out on the trails. Both these materials are also water resistant, and will help reduce the likelihood of your feet getting damp in wet conditions.
A compression moulded EVA Midsole holds excellent cushioning abilities absorbing shock as you move through the heel strike phase of the gait cycle, ensuring that with every step you take you get the same shock absorption and comfort. A stability shank is added to decrease the chances of ankle rolling or injury from occurring, by providing a bit more stability to the foot whilst out on rough terrain. A removable metatomical dual density EVA Footbed also features to provide additional comfort and protection from the ground beneath.#
The outsole is made of rubber and is non-marking, which will prevent surfaces from being ruined as well as being a supportive base for your feet to walk on. It is also highly durable and provides incredible traction even in wet conditions, allowing you to grip the terrain to ensure ultimate stability out on the trails.
