A low-cut trekker suitable for the alpine.
The Garmont Women's Dragontail LT GTX Approach Shoe has enough stability and support for trekking up to the alpine. Its waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex Extended Comfort keeps your foot comfortable in the alpine's ever-changing weather once you get there, and the suede leather upper ensures long-lasting durability for seasons and seasons of alpine approaches.
Underfoot, the Dragontail LT features a tri-density, microporous rubber midsole for sturdy support, and there's a foamy, cushy PU insole that breathes for extra comfort. Vibram's reliable rubber comes in a tread that gives this shoe's sole plenty of traction on any terrain. There's also a FrameFlex Lite footbed that moves with your foot from heel to toe.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I purchased this shoe for light alpine climbing, bushwhacking and scrambling in the Pacific Northwest and it has delighted me with its versatility. I found the shoe stretches about 1/2 size during use, and is still suitable for rock climbing and scrambling, carrying a pack and kicking steps in snow. If you want footwear that is lighter than a mountaineering boot and more supportive and climbs better than a trail shoe, the Dragontail is a great option.
I've had other Garmont, Five Ten and Scarpa approach shoes in the past, and this one is by far the most cushiony - more similar last to a boot than a rock shoe. It can perhaps best be described as a low-top hiking boot with a rock climbing boot toe box.
Amazing shoes! ... for narrow feet

This shoe looks really well built. I would love it fit me, but unfortunately my fat feet were not comfortable in them. I think they would do well with normal or narrow feet!
Unbelievable...best boot ever...

If you want a supportive, solid boot this is your ticket. I love this boot and highly recommend it. Light weight and yet solid for heavy long distance to easy day hikes. You won't regret this purchase.I typically wear a size 9.5 but sized up to 10 and it's a great fit.
