A summer with Dolomite Veloce GTX

The professional mountain guide Harald Fichtinger has spent his summer in the Alps climbing wonderful, natural mountains like Piz Badile, Grand Jorasses and the Wazespitze, always accompanied by the Dolomite Veloce GTX. This was his experience with the mountaineering shoe:

"The new Dolomite Veloce GTX is currently one of the most versatile and technical alpine boots on the market. The shoe, reduced to the bare essentials, can be used almost everywhere, from the long alpine ascents with crampons, to easier snowy terrain. It is extremely light-weight and the excellent sole provides good grip on every surface I have faced. It represents the perfect balance between stability and freedom of movement. Currently I don't know any other model as functional and performative as this one".
