Size and fit

The Zamberlan 1025 Tofane NW GT RR caters to male backpackers. It is offered in standard width and regular sizes. Also, it fairly runs true to size.

The brand shaped the boot using the ZBPK last. It has a backpacking profile which includes a low volume at the instep and wrapped foot flex point and toe area. The heel zone is tapered to create a snug rearfoot fit. The heel tip is sculptured to increase grip.

Outsole

This boot for backpacking employs the Zamberlan Vibram NorTrack outsole. The multidirectional lugs at the center render 360-degree traction. The aggressive, widely-spaced boots along the side of the sole create a self-cleaning system. The toe area has a beveled design for a smooth toe-off while the heel tip is sculptured to increase grip.

Midsole

The Zamberlan 1025 Tofane NW GT RR features a bi-density PU wedge underfoot to absorb shock from ground impacts and provide cushioning to users. The groove, which is visible at the exterior of the midsole, promotes flexibility. Additionally, a 3.5 mm Nor-Flex Light + PE insole enhances comfort.

Upper

The upper of this mid-cut backpacking boot uses a durable 2.8 mm full grain waxed Tuscan leather. It is treated with Hydrobloc and is lined with a Gore-Tex Performance Comfort laminate. This construction makes the 1025 Tofane NW GT RR waterproof, breathable and moderately insulated.

The leather hiking boot has a rubber rand at the toe area which enhances its durability and protects the foot against knocks. Comfort is amplified by its padded tongue and collar. The Zamberlan Flex-STM (ZFS), a flex junction in the ankle area, increases flexibility. Lastly, its lacing hardware features metal D-rings and open and closed hooks for fit management.
