Made for rugged terrain where sheep like to live, the Kenetrek Mountain Extreme boots will provide serious protection, excellent traction and all-day comfort in warm weather environs.
Made in Italy for hiking in the rocky terrain of the Alps, the Kenetrek Mountain Extremes feature a full leather upper, a wrap-around full rubber rand, heavy lug K-Talon outsoles, single piece vamp, swiveling hardware, plenty of padding and nylon flex points. The real secret to the protection of the Kenetrek Mountain boots is the solid nylon foot insert that runs the full length of the boot. This rigid midsole not only protects from penetration from sharp rocks, but it also prevents over-flexing of your foot arch that can result in mechanical injury.
The rich brown leather is full-grain for added toughness and is an attractive mocha color. Flexing metal eyelets move with your motion and pivot to prevent breaking off under extreme stress.
The full wrap-around rubber rand acts as a bumper to protect your foot and boot from abrasion when it comes into contact with sharp rocks and also adds an additional layer of waterproofing.
Designed for chasing sheep and goats in warmer environments, like the desert, the non-insulated version provides all of the waterproofing of their insulated version, but without the 400-grams of Thinsulate of the Mountain Extreme 400s. This will allow you to keep your cool, help avoid blisters and hot spots to keep you on your feet for more miles, which is definitely the recipe for success on a sheep hunt.
The upper of the boot is designed with plenty of room to flex and plenty of padding in places where boots rub your feet and ankles. A nylon flex cut at the heel lets the boot give so it doesn’t slide against your heel.
In addition to being comfortable, these boots are extremely waterproof. The single-piece vamp and integrated tongue prevent water from moving inside the boot. Dry feet are happy feet, especially when you are hiking for miles with a heavy pack in rough terrain.
Kenetrek has a reputation for engineering footwear from the ground up and the Mountain Extreme series of boots are some of their most rugged and well-designed. They are a favorite for those who hike in loose scree, sharp rocks, and slippery mud. For hunters, hikers, oil field workers, and anyone who has to be on their feet on unforgiving ground in warmer weather where insulation isn’t desired, you can wear these boots all day in comfort. They are a favorite of Search and Rescue personnel and Wilderness First Responders for a reason. Check out the video by clicking on the QR code and seeing these boots in action for yourself.
