The Men's Rocker Leather GT Shoe is perfect for easy climbs, long approaches, or Via Ferrata. This shoe provides a really solid contact to the ground beneath your feet. The Rocker's sole is made from wet-grip rubber with rice husks, for excellent grip in slippery conditions. Specifically, it makes use of AHAR+, ASICS® High Abrasion Resistance Rubber - proven for longevity as well as performance, and developed to be the ultimate outer sole material. Solyte® and GEL® technologies in the midsole and heel respectively provide the cushioning you need, while an "ultrasuede" Ecsaine® heel collar boosts the comfort and durability levels. The heel and toe are reinforced with rubber.The asymmetric long lacing system is easy to adjust and control, while the tongue gusset keeps your feet dry and stops any snow from sneaking in. The shoe is also built from water-resistant suede, which won't absorb extra weight while you're trekking. And when you're not wearing them: store them safely on the outside of your pack by using the webbed heel loop.
