The Taku GORE-TEX® is a lean hiker with the durability of an off-trail bruiser. Looking to build an extremely nimble boot, we started with the Vibram® Neo Day Hiker sole. This streamlined platform features broad-based lugs which are strategically situated to maximize the flexibility of the boot. This makes for incredible foot feel, especially when things get sloppy and slick. Topside, the Taku GORE-TEX® boasts clean lines and a low-profile lacing system for a very modern aesthetic. Add a dependable GORE-TEX® membrane and you have a premium all-leather hiking boot, perfect when both agility and protection are required.
Fit Profile: The Taku GORE-TEX® is built on the Arc Tempo Last, featuring an asymmetric curve for people with higher arches, a tapered toe box which provides adequate toe room, but without wasted space, good vertical toe room, and a medium volume heel that fits a wide range of shapes. The last is ideal for people wanting agility and quick foot turnover, moving quickly over technical ground. The asymmetrical shape provides a more powerful toe off, and the aggressive toe spring facilitates rapid obstacle clearance.
