Components of a Boot
What is really a high quality technical boot?
Our definition is very clear: a technical boot is a boot that has been designed, tested and adapted, in which for its manufacture we have chosen special technical materials, which provide high performance, efficiency and comfort in different mountaineering activities . The quality in our way of seeing is found in the small details, but at the same time important, of the almost handmade manufacture of our mountain boots, details that define the finish and appearance of the boot, its comfort and durability.
To give you an idea about our way of making boots, and so you can see what is behind each of the product photos in this catalog, we have put together all the components that are needed to make a single boot (Not a pair!).
In this case, all these materials combined with the good work of the union between our technicians and craftsmen, have led to the creation of the TOP Mountain boot with high performance, capable to satisfy the needs of the most demanding mountaineers. The removable bootie, characteristic of the TOP series, can be worn as a comfortable, warm and waterproof shoe inside the tent or mountain hut.
