Prevents wearers from slipping and skidding on the trail

What prevents wearers from slipping and skidding on the trail, be it wet or dry, is the hiker’s Vibram S1381 outsole. Scattered all over its surface are deep enough lugs, engineered in different angles for multi-directional grip. During transitions, this sticky layer sheds off mud, thanks to the adequate spacing between its lugs.

Protective toe box

This proprietary outsole encroaches on a portion of the footwear’s toe box. This coverage (about less than an inch in size) reinforces the shoe further and serves as a protective toe guard.

Comfortable and supportive cushioning

The Garmont Santiago Low GTX can cushion and support the foot while tackling most types of terrain hazards with its dual-density EVA midsole. It comes equipped with an anti-torsional shank for added stability. The level of underfoot comfort this component provides is also improved by the gear’s default footbed.

Weatherproof and breathable

Enclosing the foot is the Santiago Low GTX’s below-the-ankle upper. It is made of 1.6-millimeter suede leather and nylon mesh. Its walls are imbued with a Gore-Tex membrane called Extended Comfort, enabling the shoe to withstand the changing weather with sufficient breathability.
