Ok, that may or may not be true, but you'll have some extra air under your feet when you wear the Zamberlan Men's Airound Mid GTX RR Hiking Boots on your next hike. Featuring Gore Tex Surround technology, the boots bring the soles of your feet all that cool and comfortable breathability the tops of feet have been enjoying for years. This means you won't have that soggy, sweaty feeling on the bottom of your feet after a long, hot day on the trail. With a design the puts an emphasis on breathability, the Airounds have an upper composed of 3D mesh, net inserts, and PU overlays for good measure. An EVA midsole cradles your feet over miles of rugged terrain, while a TPU stability shank adds an element of torsional rigidity to the boot. And since a boot is only as good as the sole its built on, Zamberlan put rugged Vibram soles on the boots, which will deliver the traction you need whether you're moving slowly up exposed ridgelines or pounding trail below treeline.
