It uses a breathable microfiber upper material, a protective rubber toe cap, and a single ratcheting buckle closure along with two Velcro straps. The footbed use shock absorbing EVA for comfort and damping, and the insole has a prominent arch and anti-microbial treatment for odor control.

They feature a sticky and durable Vibram lugged outsole and a flexible forefoot, with a stiffer shank throughout the midsole for power. They come in black and glowing red colors, retail for $180 and will be available in December. The Giro Terraduro shoes look stylish, have a nice fit and feel, and the lugs should work well for hiking. The sides and toe cap should provide excellent foot protection, while the EVA footbed should offer great damping.
