The Karrimor Skiddaw features an upper made of leather, a material known for its innate toughness and resistance to abrasive elements. It is lined with a layer of textile material to keep the wearer’s foot plush. A Weathertite laminate is integrated into the upper to prevent water from penetrating it. It is also engineered to allow excess moisture to escape, making it breathable.
This mid-top hiker employs a series of metal D-ring eyelets and hooks for fit management. A counter is positioned at the rearfoot section for heel support.
