Outsole for multi-terrain use

The Hillmaster II GTX depends on its Vibram outsole in helping hikers maintain their footing on various types of outdoor surfaces. Most of its ability to produce traction, whether the terrain is wet or dry, comes from its multi-directional, debris-shedding lugs.

It has a hooked heel (also known as heel brake) that grants stopping power on descents.

Berghaus Hillmaster II GTX's shock mitigating midsole

Users get to keep a steady balance with adequate shock absorption and cushioning on the trail thanks to the gear’s heavy-duty midsole. Its single-piece build gives the boot a sleek profile overall. Its ability to provide a comfy ride is enhanced by the boot’s cushioned footbed.

Robust leather upper

The almost seamless upper of this Berghaus waterproof hiking boot is made mostly of leather. It has ample weatherproofing and breathability all because of the Gore-Tex Performance Comfort technology applied to its main bootie. Covering its lowest section is a thick rand that provides abrasion protection.
