The Olympus has the hearty leather and simple appearance of an extended backpacking boot, but has been upgraded and lightened with new technology. Its hidden-stitching construction and choice of high-quality materials, make it worthy of the dirtiest conditions and the longest adventures. But the I.C.E. system transforms the boot from a comfortable SUV to a front-pointing Mazzaratti.
We designed the boot with a leather upper, because it creates a feel like no other material. Although the stretch tongue-panel construction requires minimal break-in time, leather has the virtue of conforming to your feet over time, creating a custom-like fit. And it makes the boot great for miles of pounding, whether level or steep. The I.C.E. system and steel cleat are so light, flexible, and carefully designed—you won't notice they are there until you want them.
