Manufacturer's Description refers to the men's version

The perennial global bestseller Contact was the inspiration for the Contact Rev and Contact Rev W, a more lightweight, breathable backpacking boot alternative. The new upper combines the high performing fabrics of water repellent suede, microfiber and breathable abrasion resistant textile for reduced weight.

A hand applied rubber toe and leather and PU heel ensure durability. Optimal shock absorption and improved stability are achieved with an Integrated Absorbing Drive System (I.A.D.S.) PU midsole.

For a precise fit the anatomically asymmetrical Contact Lacing System with free-floating lace points allows for perfect customization.
