The Tecnica Forge GTX is a mid-size, mid-weight trekking boot, and the first of its kind. Built over a burly Vibram sol, the Forge is the first hiking boot to have a fully moldable liner. This revolutionary boot employs the same technology that has given Tecnica ski boots their highly respected name. Light enough for day hikes, and rugged enough for muti-day treks, the forge is as versatile as it is unique.

Here's how the molding process works: The boots are warmed up to a balmy 180 degrees Fahrenheit by one of our savvy shop technicians. The form fitted trekker to be (that's you) steps into the liner with your favorite hiking socks and enjoys the comfortably warm sensation of Tecnica's thermo-mold technology. The tech will proceed to strap pads around your toes inflated to apply 160 millibar of pressure to mold the insole right to your feet. The process takes just 20 minutes, and after that you'll have a completely custom hiking boot formed specifically to your foot that requires ZERO break-in time. All you have to do is put them on and get out there.
