The outsole’s profile is filled with multi-directional lugs which grip on wet and dry surfaces.

This low-cut hiking shoe from Berghaus uses a midsole made of lightweight EVA foam. The use of this material grants cushioning and shock absorbency. It’s paired with an Ortholite footbed which provides arch support and underfoot comfort. This component is also treated with anti-microbial agents to prevent the user’s foot from smelling during a hike.


The Berghaus Fellmaster Active GTX features an upper made of nubuck leather. This material imbues the shoe with resistance to abrasion and the elements. A Gore-Tex Extended Comfort membrane is embedded within the upper to seal water out. It also enhances breathability by allowing excess moisture to pass through.

This waterproof shoe is reinforced with rubber caps in the upper’s toebox and heel areas for improved durability. The gear’s closure system uses a series of eyelets to secure the laces in place. Its tongue and collar are padded to promote comfort. Moreover, a pull tab is positioned at the collar’s rear to facilitate an easy on and off.
