CROSS GROUND W’S GTX BROWN
Cross Ground GTX is an ultralight backpacking boot, and each element has been designed for long hikes with heavy loads, starting from the sole unit. The asymmetric design that characterizes Cross Ground GTX matches the natural ergonomics of the foot, both functionally, for instance the tongue, as well as aesthetically, with its two different lace loops. The features don’t stop there: the upper surprises with its two faces, having the internal side in suede, and the external side in fabric with over-injections that protect against abrasions, reduce seams and bring down total weight. The lining incorporates the GORE-TEX® Extended Comfort membrane providing outstanding protection from the elements and climate comfort whatever your activity. A single bicast rand protects the shoe from toe to heel, interspersed with thermoplastic geometric shapes injected directly into the fabric mesh. Every detail facilitates the anatomy of the foot: the asymmetric bellows tongue in lycra ensures thickness to be kept to a minimum, resulting in minimal creases, thus reducing pressure points on the instep. The design provides maximum weight reduction: the lycra collar means the height of the shoe is slightly lower, which also optimises fit, and metal components have been eliminated. The result is an excellent Made in Europe backpacking boot which is lightweight, protective, modern and which offers outstanding fit comfort.

ALPHA KNIT GTX BLACK
Lightweight and breathable, Alpha Knit GTX is a high-performance and versatile shoe, designed for light and fast hiking, even on mixed and demanding terrain. The contemporary design of the upper is constructed using the modern knitted technique, which boasts a superior degree of breathability and lightness. The foot is cradled perfectly, thanks also to the soft, asymmetric tongue that respects the natural contours of your foot. But the true innovation is in the coating that employs a new technology: the Gore-Tex Invisible Fit membrane. Direct lamination of the membrane on the upper ensures all creases and wrinkles are eliminated, thus reducing pressure points and ensuring a perfect forefoot fit. This special membrane helps to reduce shoe weight, and decrease water absorption and drying times. Alpha Knit GTX provides full protection in challenging weather conditions and a superbly dialled-in fit. Our innovative Smart Lacing System comprises two functions: quick lacing with integrated lace locks and external hooks, which ensures a perfect fit straight from the box and quick and easy adjustment when you’re out on the hills. Your personalised lacing even stays dialled in after you take the shoes off. The EVA midsole guarantees maximum lightness, stability and impact absorption. The Vibram® Multiverse sole features a specific design for mixed terrain types, with high-performance tread pattern for technical approaches, with maximum grip on the heel and a full toe area to provide enhanced safety when scrambling.
