Welcome to another installment of Gear Spotlight from FREESKIER. Here, we provide a close-up look at the gear and accessories that everyone should know about. The goal? To point you towards the best brands and products on Earth so you can trust your equipment whole-heartedly and have as much fun in the mountains as possible. Read up on The North Face’s Men’s Endurus Hike Mid Gore-Tex boot, below, then visit us again tomorrow for more awesome gear coverage.
The Endurus Hike Mid Gore-Tex is all about comfort. It’s incredibly lightweight and plush as can be, thanks to “XtraFoam” midsole technology. Broken down: This tech entails a softer-density foam underfoot for cushioning and a firmer-density EVA compound around the perimeter for stability. Round it all out with a highly waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex membrane and “sticky” Vibram soles and you’ve got a true winner for just about any and all hiking scenarios.
