Boreal Ordesa Boot
As a light-ish 2-3 season leather model for all round use on easy-to-moderate hill terrain, the wide-fitting Ordesa might all the boot you need, says Richard Prideaux.
For the forthcoming winter season, Dolomite presents Cinquantaquattro Trek Gtx, the hiking boot with an exquisitely heritage feel, drawing inspiration from traditional leather footwear for the mountains.
The upper in crazy horse leather is combined with a light, microporous Adula Vibram® sole that will absorb impact while also offering lightness and grip on all surfaces.
The GORE-TEX lining makes for excellent breathability and waterproofing, while the rubber rand ensures great protection from knocks and blows.
The DAS Light technology provides postural stability and comfort, even while walking.
The men's version is fastened using hooks, while the women's version does up with eyelets; the two metal fastening hooks hark back to traditional mountaineering footwear.
It is also available in a women's version, made using the "Perfecta" ergonomic last.
Comfort, durability and performance are combined in this shoe with a splendidly Italian design, a new "classic" that has already become an icon.
