- The Skyline Lo Lace from Ariat delivers on-trail comfort and protection in a durable package. It features an upper that is mostly covered with suede overlays to support its form.
- It is built with an Ariat-exclusive technology, known as Advanced Torque Stability (or ATS). It gives the gear enhanced support and cushioning underfoot, thereby fostering proper posture. It also pro-actively reduces fatigue.
Ariat’s Skyline Lo Lace is a relatively true-to-size, low-top hiker for men and women. It is offered in a range of whole and half sizes. The men’s shoe comes in widths regular and wide, while the women’s pair may only be had in regular. Its closure system grants wearers a personalized fit.
Thanks to its dual-density Duratread outsole, this footwear is sufficiently capable of adhering to tricky surfaces. The geometry formed by the majority of its low-profile lugs provides multi-directional grip. The treads at its heel and forefoot are ridge-like, offering ample slip and skid resistance on climbs and downhill traversals.
This hiking footgear provides balance and cushioning over rugged terrain with its heavy-duty midsole made of ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA). It has a broader coverage at the heel for added stability. Ariat designers paired this cushy yet protective layer with a cushioned footbed to give users extra comfort underfoot.
The Skyline Lo Lace’s low-top upper is primarily made of suede leather. Its collar and inner liner are made of mesh. The interior of the ankle cuff is engineered with light padding for a comfier in-shoe feel. It comes with a supportive heel counter and a protective toe rand both made of a sturdy material resembling rubber. It also has a fabric heel pull loop to make on and off a speedy affair.
Rounding out all things upper for this Ariat hiker is its lacing system. It is comprised of a synthetic lace, plated eyelets, and leather lace tunnels.
