Coming in “Black/Ebony/Frost Gray” or “Vanilla Ice/Rainy Day,” the pair combines the early 2000’s aesthetic with today’s technology and know-how to create a pair fit for both lifestyle purposes and challenging environments. It achieves this by incorporating traction and stability-enhancing technology in the sole unit to make it work efficiently on trails, while the upper features a toe cap for further heavy-duty support.
A mixture of mesh and nubuck hark back to Y2K hiking shoe styles, while rope lacing, quick-lacing eyelets, and an overall lightweight approach make the shoe better-equipped for today’s hiking needs. Adding to this is the Contragrip outsole and the articulated 4D Advanced Chassis that is built into the midsole — appearing in tonal carbon fiber finishes across both colorways. This piece adapts stability needs on various terrains, once again making the shoe perfect in all conditions.
