“Killer deal” & “Best ankle support” - Backpacker, Gear Guide

Wyoming's Wind River Range holds forty peaks over 13,000 feet, 1,300 lakes, and the headwaters of five rivers. Oh, it's on your bucket list, too? For those long, remote approaches, you'll need support and durability at a reasonable weight. The Wind River II boot bundles the weight savings of EVA, the durability of PU, a waterproof/breathable B-DRY lining to keep feet dry, and our innovative lacing system to lock your heel in place.

Fit Tip: Length runs true to size.
