If you’re the kind of hiker that tackles rocky, steep, uneven terrain with pace but likes the support of a boot rather than a shoe, the Hedgehog Fastpack II Boots are for you. They’re lighter than our classic Hedgehog Boots, but are still packed with technology to support, cushion and stabilise your journey through rugged terrain. The soles are zonally fine-tuned with CRADLE™: the toe area gives added stiffness over technical rock; and the heel shape is optimised for comfort. The Ortholite® insoles maintain their cushioning power over the long term and the durable Vibram® XS Trek outer soles deliver the optimal balance of traction and durability without adding unnecessary weight or bulk. On top of all this, the synthetic nubuck upper is waterproof and the mesh is abrasion resistant, ideal for rocky and gravelly terrain. Basically, the Hedgehog Fastpack II Boots are incredibly versatile, able to handle wet, muddy and boggy as well as dry and stony and uneven terrain.
