Who should buy the Garmont Santiago Low GTX
The Santiago Low GTX is a great vision realized thanks to all of its hiker-friendly qualities working in great harmony. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a hiking shoe that helps adventurers tackle trails and pavements with enhanced mobility.
- Prefer a hiking shoe that has improved stability and shock absorption.
- Prefer a hiking shoe that prevents blisters and slippage.
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.
Deliver stability, security, and comfort on the trail
The shoe’s asymmetrical cuff, differential ankle pads, anatomical tongue are among Garmont’s exclusive a.d.d. tech. These key players work together to deliver stability, security, and comfort on the trail.
Precision lacing and natural flex, which are also part of this technology, create a right-out-of-the-box comfort by allowing this hiker to flex like the foot.
