Constructed of 2.8mm-thick premium full-grain leather, the uppers feature a one-piece vamp -- no seams down the tongue -- which enhances abrasion resistance and waterproofness. Kenetrek's exclusive outsole design has a deep, open tread for secure traction on all surfaces.
The outsole material makes for amazingly lightweight boots. Other features include a comfortable, padded collar; full-length 7mm nylon midsoles with steel shanks for maximum support; reinforced Rubber Sole Guards for protection against rock abrasion; waterproof, breathable WindTex membrane liner; and noninsulated or insulated (Thinsulate Insulation) versions.
Price is $335 (Kenetrek, 1-800-232-6064, www.kenetrek.com).
