Salomon Quest 4D 3 GORE-TEX Walking Boots Quest 4D 3 GORE-TEX is all about walking comfort, with technologies to reduce fatigue over the duration of your treks. Light and cushioned with running shoe adapted technology, yet supportive enough for backpacking, this pair of boots will help you get to the next campsite with happier feet. GORE-TEX Upper A huge part of the uppers construction is the GORE-TEX membrane. GORE-TEX is well known for its reliable waterproof properties as well as its superb breathability. This means that all water is blocked from entering through the material but cool air is allowed to flow through at the same time as warm air is being released, creating a cool environment inside of the boot – ensuring a dry wear. Nubuck leather is also used on the uppers construction. This is a superbly hard wearing material which will protect the foot as well as wrap it snugly for much-needed support. A protective cap has been placed across the heel and toe area of the boot. This will offer much-needed protection to these key areas which could potentially be damaged or feel discomfort if the boot is knocked against rocks, walls and various other loose terrains that are commonly found along the trail. These caps can also offer additional support, helping to hold the foot securely in place inside of the boot. Placed on the upper area of the heel is a pull-strap. This will allow the wearer to firmly grip the boot, making it easier for application and removing. The Gusseted tongue allows the boot to sit snugly against the skin without causing irritation and also helps to block dirt and loose debris entering the boot and becoming lodged inside. The bootie construction offers support to the top of foot and ankle area, reducing the risk of injury and maximising coverage. Placed on the footbed is an Ortholite Moulded Sockliner. This offers additional cushioning to the footbed of the shoe and allows it to mould to the user’s unique foot shape, offering a peGORE-TEX – Ensuring that the boot is completely waterproof.
