Show Description

These boots were made for exploring. Waterproof-breathable uppers let you wander through puddles without a second thought. Nylon panels keep the weight down for fast-and-light days. An exposed TPU shank adds stability, and adaptive lugs on the sole offer firm footing on loose surfaces.

  • Suede upper is more flexible than full-grain leather, with abrasion-resistant nylon panels to shave weight and increase breathability.
  • Danner® Dry waterproof-breathable membrane.
  • 6in. shaft protects and supports your ankle.
  • OrthoLite multi-density footbed is cushioning open-cell PU.
  • Vibram® SPE midsole is rubberized EVA for durable support and comfort.
  • TPU shank adds torsional rigidity.
  • Vibram® Escape outsole uses MegaGrip rubber for grip on wet and dry surfaces.
