As a solid everyday walking boot the Expeditor Ridge 2.0 ticks a lot of boxes and the price is very favourable when compared to other boots on the market.
- The Berghaus Expeditor Ridge 2.0 is a modern hiker capable of responding to the challenges nature lovers face in the expansive outdoors, whether on or off the trail. Among such challenges is the inclement weather, for which the boot is built with a waterproof membrane.
- Sufficient underfoot cushioning and footing security are promised by the footgear’s sole unit. It is made up of a sturdy yet shock-absorbing midsole and a proprietary outsole, called Opti-Stud.
A relatively true-to-size, leather hiking boot for men and women is the Expeditor Ridge 2.0 from Berghaus. It is offered in full and half sizes in standard width. Its lace-up closure provides a secure and custom-fit lockdown.
Opti-Stud, a Berghaus-owned sole technology, is what grants wearers ample grip in the Expeditor Ridge 2.0. Laden with multi-direction lugs, this sticky outsole gets to produce enough surface traction where the terrain becomes tricky and slippery. The ridges on its heel and front tip help hikers navigate slopes with enhanced control.
This Berghaus hiking footgear mitigates shock, gives adequate balance, and cushions the foot over uneven terrain with its EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) midsole. It works in conjunction with the boot’s Ortholite footbed to improve its ability to give underfoot comfort.
The Expeditor Ridge 2.0’s high-collared upper is predominantly leather. The back half of its cuff and most of its tongue are made of mesh fabric. Engineered within its bootie is a brand-owned technology called AQ which provides not only waterproofing but also ventilation. At its heel is a pull tab for quicker on and off.
Lace loops made of textile and a set of riveted open hooks make up the hiker’s eyelets. A flat synthetic lace is set through them, and also through the tongue’s lace keeper.
