Some outdoor athletes prefer not to make a commitment about whether one should head out on trail adventures with alpine boots or LOW-CUT hikers. So, it’s nice when the model is available in both variations. The sporty CADIN GTX® can be found either as a MID-CUT version or as a LOW-CUT approach shoe. But a few things are quite certain: Whether at the crag or on the way to get there, these alpine companions quite prefer to breathe high mountain air. Plus, they are especially impressive with their performance features.
Both an approach shoe and an outdoor boot, they definitely follow their own path. In design, both m
odels march to a different drummer with their sporty, fresh look. In addition to their sporty colours, embossing on the upper contributes to that flair. In order to keep the weight as light as possible, the protective rand at the toes and heel is applied directly onto the durable synthetic material. Despite the pretty rigid sole, both models are distinguished by their very broad range of use,
whereas the CADIN GTX® MID offers significantly more stability on alpine terrain with its crampon compatibility at the heel and a Vibram® Mulaz Approach outsole. In contrast, the CADIN GTX® LO can fully play out its strengths on an approach or a via ferrata.
With both versions of the CADIN GTX®, different goals can indeed be pursued but basically both boast the identical alpine DNA. Because aside from the soft gaiters to protect from stones and dirt, and the easy lacing system, many of the numerous performance details are evident precisely where both the LOW-CUT and the MID-CUT versions feel most at home – outdoors on wide open terrain.
