“Any colour so long as it’s black,” said car manufacturer Henry T. Ford, in 1909.
This product is made from a unique cocktail of materials; resulting in a hardy boot that’s comfortable, quick drying, and easy to take care of.
One aspect of this boot that perfectly illustrates just how tough it is, is the extremely protective Schoeller Keprotec upper made with Kevlar. If you know anything about bulletproof vests, you’ll no doubt already be aware of the role Kevlar plays there. And, let’s face it, when a feature on a boot brings to mind gear designed to stop bullets you know you’re looking at a seriously durable bit of a kit. The sheer toughness of this thing is underlined further by the presence of the Vibram Four Season outsole.
“…when a feature on a boot brings to mind gear designed to stop bullets you know you’re looking at a seriously tough bit of a kit.”
The RECCO Advanced Rescue Technology, which has been implemented in the tongue of the left boot, will be a welcome feature for anyone heading into high-level or alpine territory in these boots. It gives off a directional signal that will help search and rescue teams to locate you should you ever get lost on your outdoor adventures.
A nuclear bunker for your feet, albeit far less heavy thanks to the complete lack of concrete present, the Grym Keprotec utilises Gore-Tex Performance Comfort in its build. We like that this feature delivers durable waterproofing, without sacrificing breathability, and adds to the impression that this boot has been designed to shield your feet from the world around it.
