It's no surprise that the Scarpa Men's Kailash GTX Hiking Boot continues to be a fan favorite. The breathable, waterproof Gore Tex membrane and Gore Performance Comfort lining keeps you nice and dry while fighting through snow, sleet, and rain on those precarious ridgelines. Scarpa slightly tweaked this year's edition, revamping the suede upper for enhanced flex and mobility without sacrificing a stitch of support. Additional cushioning is found in the new Comfort Flex Plus polyurethane insert to keep your dogs from barking before you've even made it halfway. Engineered for mountain domination, the Vibram Hi Trail II outsole is armed with trail specific lugs that ensure unbeatable traction, push off, and braking for when the ground gets shaky and unpredictable. When on high, the weather is erratic and subject to change at the drop of a hat, so the built in protective toe rand and bi directional ankle flex come in handy when you have to frantically scramble down over loose scree in search of safer ground. The unrivaled combination of Gore Tex and Vibram technology promises that this boot only quits when you do.
