Technology takes to the trail with the new Wind River III, a boot designed to handle the toughest treks you can throw its way. Its asymmetrical chassis delivers flex when you need it with exceptional lateral support to prevent ankle rolling, dual zone lacing, waterproof protection and integrated flex zones engineered to go the distance. From its PU heel pod that is cored out to provide lightweight support and long–lasting cushioning to its ultra-protective toe cap on top of our most rugged outsole package, it’s fully loaded and capable of going wherever the trail may lead.
