Updates to Zamberlan 1023 Latemar NW

  • The 1023 Latemar NW from Zamberlan is a classic leather hiking boot that uses modern materials to deliver optimal outdoor performance. It uses the Norwegian Welt construction which attaches its leather upper to the midsole through a two-stitch process. This method allows the boot to be resoled.
  • Its sole unit includes a bi-density PU midsole for cushioning and a Vibram outsole for surface traction. This combination creates a rockered profile which grants a more natural toe off.

Size and fit

The Zamberlan 1023 Latemar NW caters to male day hikers. It is available in medium (D) width and regular sizes. Generally, it runs true to size. Its traditional lace-up closure enables users to customize the boot’s overall volume.

This hiking gear is shaped using the brand-owned ZBPK Performing Fit last and Foot Wrapping System (FWS). The former has a low instep and tight heel area for a comfortable and snug fit. The latter is molded on to the boot’s upper to optimize fit.

Outsole

This Zamberlan footgear sports a Vibram Nortrack outsole. The grooves on the side promote flexibility while the large and multidirectional lugs render 360-degree traction. For improved adherence on most terrain types, it is designed with large contact toe and heel areas. Its pronounced heel brake boosts the sole’s anchor on steep downhill slopes.

Midsole

This mid-cut day hiking boot wears a dual-density polyurethane (PU) midsole. This element provides long-lasting cushioning and bolsters shock absorption. The brand’s designers also added a 3.5 mm Nor-Flex Light insole to optimize comfort.

Upper

The upper of the 1023 Latemar NW is equipped with a hard-wearing one-piece waxed Tuscan leather (2.6 mm - 2.8 mm). Underneath is a supple calf leather (Pelle Di Vitello in Italian) which lines the toe to the ankle area. Both materials are pretreated with Hydrobloc to enhance its water-repellency and prolong its life.

The vent holes at the top of the padded tongue and collar amplify air circulation and comfort. Its closure system includes combination eyelets and a synthetic lace which permit fit management.
