Ricosta Mountain is the first hiking boot developed around a last with WMS-System. The WMS-System considers the width-and length rates during the different growth periods of a child.

A simple lacing system with few lacing points provides a two zone lacing appropriate for children. The bigger forms of the clamp hooks guarantee a quick and suitable handling for children.

The profile of the outsole provides good grip being outdoors while being very light.
Special safety is provided by the heel made of a hexa4grip rubber compound.

The design is focused on a handling appropriate for children and consciously simplified.
