Designed as an approach shoe, the 144 Crest GT is also ideal for lightweight hiking, fast packing, as well as for adventure travel and every day use. The durable split-leather and nylon cordura Upper and rubber reinforced toe-cap and heel-guard provides protection against rocks and sharp branches when off trail. The extended lace-to-toe system results in a more precise fit and ensures that the Upper wraps snugly around your foot. The waterproof breathable GORE-TEX® membrane and gussetted-tongue construction keeps water out while still allowing your foot to expel moisture from within. The exclusive Zamberlan A.M.S. sole package has a nylon shank to ensure underfoot comfort and overall stability, a removable moisture-wicking anatomic footbed and a grip-rubber multi-directional lugged outsole that ensures traction on those muddy, smooth and slippery surfaces.
