Preferred by professional trail crews due to its support, durability, and versatility, the Garmont Men's Pinnacle GTX Mountaineering Boot is designed for everything from heavy backpacking to mixed mountaineering. Whether you're weighed down with a week's worth of supplies or a ton of technical gear, the Pinnacle keeps you prepared to handle it. The super-supportive upper offers excellent stability when you're lugging the heaviest loads. Perwanger suede helps the upper conform to the shape of your foot while still providing long-term durability, and a full rubber rand beefs up durability where it's needed most. The upper is backed by a Gore-Tex upper to keep your foot dry through the heaviest downpours and snow storms, while still offering breathability so the boot's interior doesn't turn into a sweat lodge. The Heel Lock system keeps your heel firmly in place to reduce friction and fatigue. Lightweight and breathable, the Alveolen footbed cushions and insulates while also managing moisture and boosting comfort. Dual-density PU in the midsole provides a supportive feel, absorbs impacts, and protects your foot. The rugged Vibram Titus outsole ensures reliable grip on any terrain, wet or dry. Multi-directional lugs provide 360-degree traction, and the rockered profile provides comfort on long hikes while remaining rigid enough to accept crampons. It also has a concave heel face that enhances braking during descents.
