A good hiking boot can otherwise be hampered by weight and clunkiness. Not so with the new Arios AR Mid GTX. Built with breathable materials and GORE-TEX waterproof and windproof protection, the boots also have a 3D-molded Ultralon collar melds with the tongue. The collar moves with your ankle while also providing support and protection. The Aerios AR Mid GTX’s injected EVA midsole and TPU midfoot provide both shock absorption and torsional support for rough terrain and big movements. The lug pattern of the Vibram XS Trek outsole is aggressive for ideal traction but also contoured for agility. It’s lighter than the competition, so you know you won’t be encumbered in your outdoor endeavors.
