Built for the Beyond.
Built for backpacking in tough, varied terrain, the Zamberlan Men's Vioz Lux GTX RR Backpacking Boot assures the performance and traction you need to conquer talus fields, steep outcrops, and chossy descents alike. The Vioz Lux features a durable and breathable full-grain leather upper that's backed by a Gore-Tex membrane for waterproof protection and passive breathability. An additional Hydrobloc treatment really gives moisture and precipitation a run for its money, while the PU toe rand bolsters your defense against trail-side obstacles. The PU midsole is shaped to provide day-long support, shock attenuation, and energy return, and the ZFS outsole is not only lugged with Vibram rubber to assure ample traction, but it also touts unencumbered flex in the event that you require it.

- Q & A
Burly boot for a wider foot
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
To start I was surprised at how quickly these boots started to break in for how burly they are. It took 2 hikes totaling 15 miles for them to start to break in. Since then I have nothing but great things to say about their comfort!
I have a wider foot and really have struggled to find a full leather boot that fit. These meet my needs!
The Vibram sole seems well built, time will tell though.
All in all, this is a quality boot that I would recommend to anyone looking for a solid leather upper that is built to last.
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Fit: True to size
Feedback I received: After going through 2 pairs of lighter style hiking boots in 2 years I decided to go for a burlier boot. They are a bit heavier and I am sure will take longer to break in but those are both sacrifices I am willing to make to have a boot last longer than 150-200 miles. The construction seems super solid. I'm hoping the all leather upper and Vibram sole are a recipe for success.
I have a wide foot (long toes) and really struggled to find a boot that would fit. This one seems to do the trick.
They have a pretty cool retro ski boot look, especially with the red laces. Always a plus.
I haven't gotten a chance to get out and put them to the test yet but I am confident in their construction. I am excited to get out and play in these!
