Mountaineering boots have a rigid sole for climbing. A flexible sole is more appropriate for the approach. Therefor, alpinists had to carry two pairs of shoes. This is over now.
HiKlimb possesses a flexible sole, which can be stiffened for climbing. Moving the tension lever also clears the crampon fixation, thus preventing faulty operation. To increase the grip when descending steep slopes, the heel spreads like the hooves of mountain goats. An abrasion proof leather coating replaces the old-fashioned rubber rand. The hooks are embedded into the leather, eliminating pressure marks.
