Men's Vectiv Exploris 2 Mid FUTURELIGHT Leather Hiking Boots


Regular price€180.00

Combining an ultra-light yet supportive footplate, midsole rocker geometry and SurfaceCTRL™ grip, our VECTIV™ technology is designed to maximise energy on the trail. And for the Exploris, that translates into hiking boots engineered to go the distance. But while this iteration is loaded with the same great details as the original, we've made a few changes.

The platform below the foot is broader to provide greater stability. The stack height is 2 mm higher for improved comfort and support. And the rockered midsole offers a forked heel and forefoot and a TPU plate for increased lateral displacement and stability.

The FUTURELIGHT™ membrane is still as breathable as ever and the nubuck leather is durable but soft. But even better, we source our leather from Leather Working Group (LWG)-certified tanneries, allowing us to help build a sustainable future with responsible leather.
