Who should buy the Columbia Peakfreak X2 Outdry
The Columbia Peakfreak X2 Outdry is intent on wowing outdoorsy folks with every trail-worthy pro it has up its sleeve. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a hiking shoe that is engineered for hiking enthusiasts who require enhanced agility on rugged trail adventures.
- Prefer a hiking shoe that promises to make strides more efficient with its high-energy-return midsole technology.
- Prefer a hiking shoe that has the ability to stay moisture-free in inclement weather.
Excellent traction on different types of outdoor surfaces
The Peakfreak X2 Outdry comes with the Omni-Grip outsole for sufficient traction on different types of outdoor surfaces. It has aggressively shaped protrusions (commonly known as lugs) and toothy ridges, making it a highly sticky component, especially over loose-soiled terrain.
The lugs around its outer perimeter jut out slightly off the edge, delivering extra grip on tricky slopes and during lateral (sideward) maneuvers. It is made entirely of non-marking, heavy-duty rubber.
Provides adventurers with adequate comfort and shock protection
This hike-centric offering provides adventurers with adequate comfort and shock protection with its Techlite midsole—a Columbia exclusive. This one-piece layer, which is made of ethylene-vinyl acetate, can stabilize the foot over rough terrain, thanks to its partly rigid, partly supple construction.
Columbia shoemakers gave it a level of bounciness that helps wearers expend less energy during transitions. They also paired it with a removable insole to add to its provision of underfoot comfort.
What houses the foot in the Columbia Peakfreak X2 Outdry is a below-the-ankle upper made of textile. It is laden on both sides with welded synthetic overlays for abrasion protection.
Breathable and waterproof
Its inner walls are lined with Outdry, making the shoe sufficiently breathable and waterproof at the same time. Both its heel and toe box are randed, giving the footgear a more solid structure, thereby providing owners with additional support on the trail.
Excellent closure mechanism
The closure mechanism of this waterproof hiking shoe is made up of combination eyelets and flat synthetic lace. Its uppermost pair of eyelets are reinforced with synthetic overlays to prevent the lace from cutting through the fabric.
