Built for alpine adventures and active outdoor sports, the HIKE UP GTX features a Vibram® outsole providing high traction, and a waterproof GORE-TEX® liner. To ensure smooth progress on rough ground and in very wet conditions, the fit is engineered to minimize pressure points and while maintaining good lateral support while walking. This shoe promotes the foot's natural roll, with the ankle mobility of a low-cut upper for enhanced agility. Heel cushioning remains reliably pleasant over time, as does the leather outer, which durably resists abrasion. Lightweight and robust, this shoe is dependable on adventures and versatile day to day.
