Super Trident GTX: What the box might not tell you
As an approach shoe with a mid-height clearance, the Super Trident GTX at face value can be taken as a more supportive option for low-grade ascents. Beyond that and its weather-ready confines, however, the boot has other characteristics that deserve your attention. These traits are as follows:
Cushioned heel + rear guard
This combination makes the Super Trident GTX a reliable companion for extra strenuous routes, especially where heel impact is a common occurrence. These two components give the boot more longevity, making it viable for longer hikes with a light pack.
Yes, its rubber rand has both its sides raised higher than most. This design will allow you to safely perform forefoot jams in bigger cracks.
Its sole unit is engineered to be snowshoe compatible. On top of that, it also works well with most stretch gaiters, which repel snow without hindering mobility.
