Berghaus Expedition Trek 2.0 Walking Boots
An upgrade from their predecessors, the Expedition Trek 2.0 Walking Boots are a hardwearing, durable companion for your next hiking adventure.
The uppers of the walking boots cover your foot with comfortable suede fabric, that's soft to touch. To protect the fabric from getting damaged and your feet getting wet, the upper is lined with an AQ waterproof protective layering, ensuring all-day dryness, and exceptional comfort. Not only this but beneath the suede materials is a layer of mesh lining, providing optimal airflow to your feet, throughout the materials. The mesh allows cool, fresh air to replace any warm air that lies in your boots, preventing your feet from getting uncomfortable and sweaty. The collar and tongue of the boots are lined in soft fabrics, ensuring your feet are comfortable, helping to prevent any irritation or natural abrasion. Completing the upper is a traditional lacing system, which locks down the midfoot to ensure a distraction-free stride throughout your journey.
A full-length platform of EVA resides underfoot for lightweight, responsive cushioning. Generous, soft and durable, it spares your joints as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving surfaces. Exceptionally lightweight, the EVA ensures long-lasting cushioning to keep you comfortable on long-distance days. EVA is extremely firm, which will absorb shocks instantly and effectively, preventing them from causing any damage to the sole of the foot. The energy produced from this will also be returned as rebound, which will give you an added spring in your step. The midsole ensures you're ready for unpredictable trails and tough terrain. As well as this, a breathable, cushioned Ortholite footbed ensure long-lasting underfoot comfort. The insole allows for ample ventilation so your feet remain cool, dry and comfortable at all times, as well as, prevents unpleasant odours.
An exceptional grip is provided through the means of OPTI-STUD outsoles, allowing you to stay confident and comfortable on uneven, tricky terrains. The Berghaus traction system combines both large and small studs to provide a cushioning impact and bite into the ground, allowing your feet to make effective contact with the floor, and providing stability even on the trickier hikes.
