Tecnica Forge Thermoform Hiking Boots

Jul 25, 2017

Custom-fitting thermal technology isn’t necessarily something new. In fact, it’s been used in ski and snowboard boots for years now. What we can’t figure out is why nobody is applying that to, say, hiking boots? Looks like we’re not the only ones wondering, because Tecnica has just released info on their Forge – the brand’s first thermoform hiking boots.

Made with Tecnica’s C.A.S. (Custom Adaptive Shape) technology built-in, these boots offer a superb out-of-box fit that can be further customized in just 20 minutes to fit your feet exactly. And it’s not just the fit that makes these boots amazing – they’re also equipped with an innovative overlap collar, kevlar loops rather than metal hardware with a self-locking design, and a triple-density EVA midsole and Vibram Megagrip outsole. There are also two versions – the Forge and Forge S – which are both lined with Gore-Tex, though the former features a Nubuck leather face whereas the latter has a high-tenacity fabric. They will be released in February of next year.
