The Friction II GTX is made for mountain adventures. This versatile, alpine boot will cope with demanding hikes and treks or climbing trips and glacier tours. Its stiffer, reinforced sole is compatible with semi-automatic crampons. For additional comfort, we equip it with a full-length, shock-absorbing element. The robust upper uses Bergrind leather from mountain cattle and hard-wearing Cordura®. And the insulated lining and GORE-TEX membrane will keep your toes warm and dry. With deep pull lacing, offset tensioning hooks, nylon lace loops and lace clamping for two-zone lacing and a secure and precise fit.
