The Zamberlan GTX Civetta II - Men's backpacking boot provides excellent support and protection for your feet. The one-piece nubuck leather uppers and the Gore-Tex linings keep them dry and comfortable. Vibram Bifida outsoles feature self-cleaning lugs, dual-density rubber cushioning and forefoot grooves for natural flex. Durable polyurethane midsoles cushion and protect feet. Shanks supply the support you need on rough and uneven terrain. Padded ankle collars and padded gusseted tongues protect feet while keeping out trail debris. Toe and heel counters are made of a thermoplastic reinforcement to protect the boots from bumps and bruises of the trail. Overall a great mid-weight backpacking boot.
