Garmont Sticky Stone GTX notable features

-The Garmont Sticky Stone GTX is engineered for adventurers who prefer to speedily make their way across approach zones, whether uphill or downhill. It comes built with components that make it a competent tool for low-grade bouldering and via ferrata.

-It is imbued with two of Garmont’s exclusive technologies: a.d.d. and Double Damper. The former, which stands for Anatomically Directed Design, promotes the foot’s natural ability to provide stability. The latter, on the other hand, grants enhanced shock absorption, resulting in safe landings.

Size and fit

The Sticky Stone GTX from Garmont is a low-top approach shoe for men and women. Its designers used the Ergo last in its construction, giving the shoe a kind of interior that hugs the foot naturally. It belongs to the fit type the brand calls Alpine, which leaves the shoe with a roomier forefoot zone. The hiker’s to-toe lace-up closure provides a secure and customized fit.


Sufficient surface traction in the Garmont Sticky Stone GTX is courtesy of the Vibram Extended outsole. It is a hardwearing component that promises to produce enough friction over different types of terrain, be they wet or dry. Triangular lugs (also known as studs) are strategically placed all around it to help the foot stick to damp-slash-loose soil. On smears, this Megagrip-based Vibram layer promises to deliver extra grip with its dedicated climbing zone.


The Sticky Stone GTX is engineered with an EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) midsole with Double Damper technology. It comes in two parts. The upper part, which is a single-piece construction, offers lasting comfort and front-to-back stability. The lower part, on the other hand, ups shock absorption, especially around the heel.

On top of the shoe’s two-part midsole is a footbed made of polyurethane. Its inclusion translates to even more cushioning as well as additional underfoot support.


What stands between the rest of the foot and the elements in this Garmont piece is a heavy-duty shell made with a combination of mesh and 1.5-mm thick suede leather. It comes lined with a Gore-Tex membrane called Extended Comfort, rendering the shoe watertight and breathable at the same time. Garmont designers furnished its forefoot with a hardy toe cap for abrasion protection and extra climbing traction.

The bulk of the Sticky Stone GTX’s parts—asymmetrical collar, differential ankle pads, anatomical tongue, precision lacing, roomy toe zone—are the components that make up the a.d.d. technology. The shoe’s lockdown system is comprised of a synthetic lace and combination eyelets.

I am passionate about maintaining an active lifestyle. I’ve been running and playing tennis since high school. In the last 5 years, I’ve picked up weight lifting and bouldering as part of my regular fitness routine. You can usually find me hitting the weights or rock walls at the gym, or trying out a new sport.
