Via ferrata High performance even on the smallest ledges.
“When I set off on a via ferrata, sure-footedness is what I need most. A single careless step can quickly produce a disastrous result. Then again, this is what gets your juices flowing sometimes as well.”
No matter whether you are scaling a steep mountain or strolling from café to café along chilly city streets of town – GORE-TEX footwear will always keep your feet pleasantly dry. Your footwear will always be waterproof and provide optimal breathability.
Vibram® has been one of the leading brands of high-quality soles for many years.
Optimum positioning of the tongue, without any slippage or pressure points: This is what X-LACING® technology is all about. This special lacing system secures the tongue both vertically and horizontally. As a result, the lacing system gains independence from the height of the instep, making it perfect for any type of foot. This technology ensures that the pressure of the laces is transferred not just to the hooks but to the tongue as well.
To provide optimum stability for the heel and to maintain a strong connection between the front and rear foot, a special form of heel rubber is attached while under tension. This SLINGSHOT effect generates a powerful restoring force, creating optimal grip and excellent adaptability.
Generalist As a rule of thumb, a good via ferrata boot is a generalist. After all, the route covers not just steps carved into rock and ladders, but also classic mountain trails, meadows and hiking paths.
Torsional stability Climbers who are taking long tours or have to cover difficult passages need secure footing. This is why via ferrata boots offer exceptional torsional stability and give wearers firm footing even when they are carrying a full load.
