The Winter Market 2015 Outdoor Retailer show introduced a ton of new and exciting pieces to explore the great outdoors. While there was plenty of stuff that caught our attention, Under Armour’s Fat Tire GTX shoes were one of our favorite offerings.
The performance apparel brand is diving head first into the outdoor gear segment, creating a fully capable hiking shoe that’s sure to be a hot commodity. Each high top silhouette is sporting a BOA closure system for easy in-and-out access, along with a Gore-Tex upper for weather protection. The toughness doesn’t stop there though – it continues through the entire shoe with an outsole crafted from Michelin tire rubber rounding out the construction. This grippy outsole has been equipped with aggressive lugs inspired by the tread on a mountain bike tire (hence the name) helping you get a handle on any terrain. Not only are these bad boys built for business, but they are also extremely lightweight for what they are, weighing in at just over a pound. These shoes retail for $200. [Purchase]
