A no-compromise shoe built for the mountain. Drom packs all the performance features you need and will take you where you want to go. Perfectly at home walking to your local crag or high in the mountains, Drom is like a 4×4 for your feet.
The upper, in durable premium quality split leather laces very close to the toes for a really secure and highly adjustable fit and is lined with the exceptional ultra-breathable Moisture-Tech® lining from Sympatex. A very generous protective rubber rand around the forefoot guards against scuffs and abrasion.
Unlike lesser approach shoes the Drom boasts a fully board-lasted construction with a full-length midsole giving it excellent underfoot support on rough terrain. This midsole has a soft EVA top surface layer which greatly enhances underfoot comfort on long hikes.
A great mountain approach shoe needs a great outsole and for Drom we chose the Vibram® Pepe rubber outsole which has an aggressive deeply lugged tread pattern for excellent traction on soft and loose surfaces and weight saving cut-outs to shave away any excess weight.
Drom is comfortable and stylish enough to use every day but was born for mountain approaches, scrambling, Via Ferrata and trail walking.
