Pros and Cons of this hiking shoe:
Water or moisture is the culprit for many foot infections, smelly foot or even a cause in hiking accidents. When water penetrates the foot from the outside, it causes alterations in the stability, due to the slippery contact inside the shoe.
This technological advancement aims to provide the hikers with dry feet to help enhance the hiking experience.
Earthkeepers Accessories are featured in Timberland footwear to honor their commitment to preserving natural resources, and improving energy and water management.
These accessories are made from recycled and organic materials as well as other used leathers that can still be made usable.
Premium waterproof leathers are used by Timberland to ensure the user has dry feet.
These leathers are perfected during the tanning process and then seam-sealed using a breathable lining to help in the passage of water vapor and air, resulting to dry feet despite wet conditions outside.
BSFP Motion Efficiency System is derived from the four motions made by the feet: brake, support, flex and propel. This is a system created and placed on the specific motion locations in the foot, ensuring stability and improved movement and traction.
This system helps contribute to the long-lasting usage of the shoes and comfort of the user.
One concern pointed out in reviews is the presence of a rather thin-gauged stamped metal in the lace metal grooves above the ankle area. Complaints of these getting eventually removed were noted.
But other than that, these hiker boots seem perfect for hikers who are looking for a good buy of hiking boots.
