Excellent traction

Users can tackle virtually all types of terrain with this day hiking boot’s non-marking Sawtooth outsole. Its profile is filled with a pattern of aggressive lugs designed after the Sawtooth mountain range in Sun Valley, Idaho. There are lugs found on the outsole’s side which provides lateral traction to the wearer. The sole’s front end also extends upwards for extra protection against stubbing.
