- Heinen Terracare® Upper – 2.2mm full grain sanded nubuck leather upper is robust and durable to extend the life of your boots. It's also open pored for breathability while remaining fully waterproof.
- GORE-TEX® Lining - Allows for moisture and sweat to escape while preventing water from entering from the outside through a semi-permeable membrane that also provides optimal breathability.
- C4 Tongue – Reduces pressure on the instep and allows for improved flex and comfort through anatomically shaped tongues which cradle the left and right foot specifically.
- X-Lacing Stud – A patented LOWA technology that holds the tongue in place horizontally and vertically thus reducing tongue movement and preventing pressure and blisters.
- Roller Eyelets – Small rollers in the metal eyelets allow for quick and easy lacing with minimal friction.
- Medium Flex Stabilizer – Provides sturdy underfoot support while retaining forefoot flex through a full length and full width Nylon Stabilizer. (5mm at the heel, tapering to 3mm at the forefoot).
- PU Midsole – Reduces fatigue and and potential injury when walking long distances by correcting the manner of walking and controlling excessive rolling movement of the feet outwards or inwards (over-pronation or supination).
