Moab Speed Mid GTX: Going against the grain
From just a spectator’s point of view, the Moab Speed Mid GTX can appear just like most high-quality hiking boots on the market, albeit possessing a bit more spunk. However, if you dig a little deeper, you will discover two things that make the featured shoe somewhat of a rebel.
We are talking about its noticeable lightness (considering it is a supportive gear) and the boot’s focus on sustainability. The former quality is straightforward, being that compared with other kicks from the same category, the Moab Speed Mid GTX is significantly lighter. This shaved-off weight, combined with the hiker’s cushy-yet-tough underfoot platform, translates to upped mobility.
The latter, on the other hand, goes against the flow of the ill effects of modernization. Indeed, having several components—laces, liners, outsole—being made with recycled materials (whether completely or partly) is something to celebrate about.
