Size and fit

Outsole

It’s Vibram outsole features the Dynatech 3 design meant to give you the traction, stability, and cushioning you need when traversing challenging terrain. Very noticeable are the multidirectional lugs clustered mainly in the center, along the heel and forefoot, that ensures a better grip. Meanwhile, larger and more aggressive lugs are placed around the edges to boost traction on steep inclines.

Midsole

The Moraine Plus GTX comes with a dual-density EVA midsole that provides long-lasting cushioning and responsiveness. This synthetic foam also has superior shock absorption qualities which help lessen the consequences of accidental impact.

For additional comfort and protection, a separate cushioning unit is fixed onto the heel. Referred to as the “Heel Tension System,” it keeps your feet in place even on steep grounds. This structure also helps counter torsional twists and makes walking easier, even on challenging or rough paths.

Upper

The shoe upper is made of Nubuck leather which is water-resistant and long-wearing. Aside from being a low-cut model, the Moraine Plus GTX is equipped with the Flex Point system that provides freedom of movement. There’s also a rubber toe bumper that protects against impact and sharp hazards. Inside the shoe is the Gore-tex membrane that shields the foot from rain or water.

Completing the upper is a lace-up closure with sturdy round laces that are easy to tighten or loosen. There’s thick padding around the collar that does not only contribute to the comfort level of the shoes but also helps reduce the impact stress on the Achilles and the malleolus area.
