Why We Love It
Engineered for moving faster and lighter on all terrain, this boot also performs well on rock. Its highly wear-resistant, but lightweight, TPU-coated fabric upper has suede inserts for stability and is coupled with GORE-TEX® Extended Comfort lining for durable waterproof protection without sacrificing breathable comfort.
Where We Use It
Backpacking and hiking.
Overall your foot will have good freedom of movement, yet still feels well supported - essential when you're carrying a loaded pack for multiple miles and multiple days.
The lasted mid-cut boot construction allows enough space to comfortably accommodate your toes, whilst ensuring all-day comfort and support with the right amount of flex. Inside the heart of the shoe, the EVA midsole delivers good shock absorbency and rebound. For additional stability and protection, there is a forgiving ankle cuff, a heel stabilizer and a rubber toe cap. Underfoot, the outsole guarantees reliable grip thanks to the Pomoca compound rubber and tread pattern with deep lugs and grooves and the versatility to cope with a wide range of terrain from mud and grass to rock, ice and snow. The climbing lacing, which runs right down to the toe, allows easy customization for greater precision in technical terrain or more relaxed wear. Our women’s MTN Trainer Lite Mid is a lighter mid-top, 3-season alpine footwear solution for long-distance hikers and backpackers who want to shed weight from their feet but are not prepared to compromise on water resistance and comfort.
