Promote breathability and comfort in arid outdoor conditions

The upper of the Journey Pro GTX uses nubuck leather. Mesh is used in specific areas of the shoe to promote breathability and comfort in arid outdoor conditions. The foot is protected from wet encounters through a Gore-Tex laminate.

Delivers extra protection on rocky trails 

The brand engineers added a layer of reinforcement on the toe and heel areas to deliver extra protection on rocky trails and enhance the shoe’s durability. Comfort is amplified by its cushioned tongue and collar. To manage fit, it uses webbing loops and two sets of metal eyelets at the top. A pull-loop at the back of the shoe facilitates smooth on and off.
