Designed as an approach shoe, the Zamberlan 144 Crest GT Hiking Shoe for menA is also ideal for lightweight hiking, fast packing, adventure travel, and every day use. The durable split-leather and nylon cordura upper with rubber reinforced toe-cap and heel-guard provide protection against rocks and sharp branches when scrambling cross-country. The extended lace-to-toe system provides a precise fit and ensures that the upper wraps snugly around your foot. Its waterproof breathable GORE-TEX membrane and gussetted-tongue construction keeps water out while still allowing your foot to expel moisture freely from within. An exclusive Zamberlan A.M.S. sole package that has a nylon shank to ensure underfoot comfort and overall stability, partners with a removable moisture-wicking anatomic footbed to maintain all-day comfort. Its grip-rubber multi-directional lugged outsole gives reliable sticky traction on muddy, smooth and slippery surfaces.
