As the low-cut version of the Super Trident GTX, it features a leather upper and Gore-Tex® membrane to combine durability with waterproof and breathable performance. The three-season shoe is the most versatile because it is more flexible than a three or four-season shoe, but much more solid than a single season shoe. The leather is tough, thus it will cope in abrasive areas, and it will be made hydrophobic and waterproof to enhance its protection capabilities. The Gore-Tex® membrane will keep your feet dry, blocking water from getting in and letting sweat out. To complete the best protection against the elements, a rubber toe cap and heel guard protect from impact and from damage, so they last longer, and the Vibram® outsole's dense composition creates a sturdy barrier between your feet and the ground. Still, it is lightweight and most of all, provides high traction. The dual density foam (Recycled EVA) midsole provides support and shock absorption, stabilizing and cushioning the heel. It is further supported by the Trident® Heel, which stabilizes the feet and absorbs shock. Its semi-rigid soft flex enhances dynamic movement. The shoe features an Alpine Approach Fit™ that was developed to optimize a dynamic approach with a good heel support, instep stability and precision. With a snug fit and climbing-style extended lacing allowing precise adjustment, this shoe is perfect for alpine approach, hiking and via ferrata.
