Within its own production dedicated to hunting, Zamberlan is developing some footwear lines with specific features designed for various environments and the different ways enthusiasts make use of them.
Since hunting has the mountain as a natural setting and therefore the crossing of rough and uneven areas, Zamberlan produces boots that tend to sit high on the ankle and with considerable plantar support and torsional rigidity to ensure safety and comfort to the hunter.
Zamberlan Kodiak GTX hunting boots: details and special features
Among these specific models dedicated to mountain hunting we tried the Kodiak GTX, a boot that thanks to its design and its construction has proven capable of facilitating long hours of walking in different environments and conditions, particularly protecting ankles and part of the calves.
The upper in Nabuk is soft and of the right thickness to resist rain, snow and humidity thanks to the Hydrobloc treatment.
With regard to the upper it must be stressed that in the front part closer to the toe it is one-piece, then turned up and more protective against not only water but also brambles.
The total waterproof and breathable control is guaranteed by a Gore-Tex membrane.
The Vibram soles offer excellent grip on all terrains and a particularly appreciable flexibility during walking hunts even in the woods, where you are often forced to jump or overcome natural obstacles in the undergrowth to advance.
The particular design of the sole with lugs far from each other facilitates the self-cleaning action and the best traction of the boot in the mud.
A protective rubber band covers the entire perimeter of the boot, including the heel, another part of the foot subject to shocks and rubbings.
The Zamberlan Kodiak GTX boot is designed and manufactured entirely in Italy.
