You wouldn't wear a pair of stilettos on a multi-pitch climb, so why would you wear anything but the Zamberlan Women's Vioz GTX Backpacking Boot when taking on a multi-day backpacking trip in uncharted territory. The Vioz features a women-specific construction, so you don't have to worry about the whole "pink and shrink" situation that often occurs in women's backpacking boots. The upper's Hydrobloc-proofed full-grain leather and Zamberlan Flex System not only offer a classic look but assures just enough flex without sacrificing lateral support.
A waterproof breathable Gore-Tex Performance Comfort prevents water from getting the best of your adventure, and the Microtex lining wicks moisture and dries quickly. Additionally, the Z-Fit Comfort Footbed and PU midsole ensure trek-long comfort and support, and the TPU shank provides extra torsional stability as you walk. The Vioz also boasts a rockered curve, which allows for a natural forward motion in your stride. A rugged, Vibram 3D sole sports a variety of heavy-duty lugs that offer unrivalled traction in otherwise slick situations.
