It was a thirst for adventure that led our ancestors to trek the globe on foot. Centuries later, it’s this same hunger to explore that inspires us to surpass our limits…but this time, equipped with footwear and gear at the cutting edge of technology. Here’s an overview of the brand new Vectiv Exploris Futurelight™ hiking boots.
Get your body moving
May those who’ve never been hiking never claim that this sport is a low-intensity activity.
On the contrary! Hiking is way more than a simple walk. The muscles stimulated during this activity are several and the energy required from the body to activate them is high.
And that’s precisely what Californian brand, The North Face, wishes to do through its new collection: help you perform during your ascents and downhills, and surpass your goals without overexerting yourself.
Maximize your performance on the trails
Depending on the type of trail you intend to try out, hiking tests your cardiovascular endurance, muscle strength, balance, and momentum; aptitudes that contribute to getting you where you want to go.
To get there, your body activates your internal catalysts. And this is where Vectiv technology comes into play. Specially designed to offer you maximum performance and rigorously tested by athletes, the unique structure of the Vectiv sole – composed of carbon fiber along its length – offers a distinct experience to your foot depending on the surface upon which you walk. You’ll benefit from increased speed and fluidity on flat terrain, more dynamics when on an incline, and more stability and reactivity during downhills.
The result? A technology that follows your every step and optimizes your physical efforts in order to offer you hiking footwear that takes you a step ahead.
Make your hiking boots’ strengths work for you
In addition to maximizing your performance and offering an improved workout during your hike, the Vectiv Exploris Futurelight™ hiking boots have other properties that will allow you to concentrate on your main goal: walking.
- Comfort. Installed under a lightweight, protective upper, Vectiv technology offers three layers that decrease fatigue on the foot: a 3D carbon plate on the sole, a cushioned midsole, and a SurfaceCTRL™ outsole, delivering superior stability, forward propulsion and incredible grip. These boots are so comfortable that they can even be worn straight out of the box and do not need to be “broken in” before heading out hiking in them.
- Stability. While most hiking shoes are equipped with a two-dimensional sole, Vectiv offers three for lateral stability that’s even more effective. The side panels act as a padded sports-car style bucket seat and support even on the most difficult terrain.
- Breathability and impermeability. The ultrafine Futurelight™ nanomembrane offers unrivalled porosity all while preserving impermeability. The air circulates through the boot without compromising protection against bad weather. It’s a true innovation in outdoor gear technology.
Try them on and experience their unparalleled comfort.
