Provides grip on wet and dry surfaces
The ECCO Aspina GTX High is equipped with a lightweight outsole for traction. Its surface is filled with rectangular lugs which provide grip on wet and dry surfaces.
Can withstand various ground conditions
The outsole is made of a durable rubber compound to make it withstand various ground conditions. Moreover, this component has Dual Flex Grooves in the heel area which facilitates the push-off action.
Shock absorbing and comfortable cushioning
This high-cut day hiking boot is built using a Strobel construction method, making it flexible. It uses a direct-injected midsole made of PU to create a cushioned ride for the user. This component also works by reducing impact in every step.
Provides stability and rigidity
The boot’s anatomically-designed shank, part of the brand’s Receptor Lite technology, provides stability and rigidity. It also grants dynamic support from heel-strike to toe-off.
Enhanced durability against abrasions
ECCO’s Aspina GTX High features a yak nubuck leather upper for enhanced durability against abrasions. The upper is coated with a Hydromax treatment solution, giving the footgear a water-resistant finish. It is lined with a Gore-Tex membrane to prevent water from being absorbed without compromising breathability.
The boot’s closure system consists of a series of eyelets to hold the lace in place. Its tongue and collar are padded to promote comfort. A pull tab is found at the back of the gear to permit an easy on and off.
