Excellent grip over rocky terrain

The Alta Via GV owes its surface-adhering power to its rubber outsole, called Vertical—a product made by Vibram in collaboration with Asolo. It features durable, self-cleaning lugs (those blocky and spiky protrusions) for added grip over rocky terrain. It is engineered with a hooked heel to help wearers descend slopes with enhanced security.

Grants shock absorption

Placed at its heel and forefoot are PU inserts that grant shock absorption. Directly on top of it sits a cushy anatomic footbed called Lite 3 for added comfort and support underfoot.

Insulated and breathable

Encasing the foot in the Alta Via GV is its high-top upper made of water-resistant Perwanger leather. It has a thickness ranging between 2.2 mm and 2.4 mm. Its liner comes with Gore-Tex’s Insulated Comfort technology, leaving the boot warm and breathable enough on the inside yet amply waterproof on the outside.

Provides extra scuff and scratch protection

Covering almost the entire perimeter of its base is a sturdy overlay (or rand) for extra scuff and scratch protection. The boot’s closure system uses mostly riveted metal loops and hooks in place of regular eyelets. The lace holes at the ankle are made of fabric.
