With a Gore-Tex® liner and ankle protection, this mid height approach shoe is perfect in the Rockies, Sierras, the PNW or New England. A sticky Vibram® X-Traction Idro Grip outsole provides excellent traction and grip. The upper is breathable and durable and takes a beating in scree, wide cracks and sharp moraine while protecting your ankles. The patented Mythos lacing system provides uniform tension across the foot for a great fit. A 2mm polypropylene insole protects your feet from trail obstacles and adds excellent support when humping loads. This shoe is a versatile tool that lets you kick steps, hike with a large pack, negotiate technical terrain and reach your destination.
