Who should buy the Garmont Miguasha Low Nubuck GTX
Appealing both on and off the trail—this no-nonsense description pretty much gives the Miguasha Low Nubuck GTX justice. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a hiking shoe that is equipped with a number of technologies that give a performance for day hikers.
- Prefer a hiking shoe that is engineered to give grip on most types of terrain.
Size and fit
The Garmont Miguasha Low Nubuck GTX is a low-top hiking shoe for men and women. It is equipped with a traditional lacing system, which enables wearers to personalize its fit. This shoe is furnished with a Heel Lock in the rearfoot region. The heel lock is connected to the lacing system to prevent the heel from slipping.
The Garmont product features the brand’s Anatomically Directed Design (ADD) technology, which consists of an anatomical tongue and a roomy toe box. These components match the natural asymmetric shape of the foot to hold it securely and comfortably in place.
Renders traction on virtually all types of terrain
This shoe for hiking trips comes with a Vibram S1381 outsole. It is made of a Vibram XS Trek rubber compound, which grants durability against rough ground conditions. Its profile employs a spacious pattern of multi-directional lugs to render traction on virtually all types of terrain. Its surface is also designed to shed dirt and debris to optimize grip.
The sole’s forefoot and rearfoot zones are engineered to give users added control when ascending or descending. A heel brake is integrated into its construction for extra stopping power. Moreover, its front end extends toward the toe box for protection against accidental bumps.
The Garmont Miguasha Low Nubuck GTX is equipped with a durable midsole made of dual-density microporous rubber. It is designed to give a cushioned ride while absorbing shock.
It is paired with a footbed made of ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam, which renders extra cushioning and underfoot comfort.
The men’s and women’s Garmont Miguasha Low Nubuck GTX features a 1.6mm greased nubuck leather upper, making it robust and resistant to abrasion. It is lined with a Gore-Tex Extended Comfort membrane to keep water out while allowing excess heat to pass through. A rand is found on the shoe’s forefoot zone for protection from trail hazards.
Secure fit and easy to wear
This Garmont offering for day hikers uses a series of eyelets for its lacing system. These components are crafted to help wearers manage the footgear’s fit. A heel lock is positioned at the rearfoot region for added heel support. The collar is lined with full-grain leather for comfort and easy entry.
