A fully waterproof, men's-specific trail running shoe that provides a precise fit for control on uneven terrain. The waterproof Release GORE-TEX takes the wetter, muddier shoulder-season conditions of the Teton Traverse in stride. The trail running shoe features waterproof/breathable GORE-TEX Extended Comfort Range lining and gasket construction to completely seal out weather. The breathable synthetic air-mesh upper is treated with DWR (durable water repellent) to repel water at creek crossings. The Dynamic Fit Lacing System provides a precise and secure fit that custom-wraps around the forefoot. A cushioning Ortholite X-40 footbed wicks moisture and neutralizes odor; triple-density midsole stabilizes and centers the foot. Strategic tread placement on the men's-specific Vibram sole provides excellent grip and traction on sketchy terrain.
