Built on the same foot-mirroring last as the award-winning Evolution Mid GTX, the TrekSta Men’s Alta GTX delivers excellent fit and comfort with maximum support and stability for long, rugged day hikes and extended backpacking trips.
TrekSta combines unique elements to the design and fit of every shoe they make so your shoes won’t inhibit you on or off the trail. TrekSta’s NestFIT last is designed to account for every contour of the human foot, eliminating unnecessary gaps and pressure points. This precise, contoured design is also found in the upper, insole, midsole and outsole of the Men’s Alta GTX. The full leather upper mirrors the contact points of the big toe, the curve of the other four toes and the indentation of the arch and instep while the insole matches the curves and contours of the bottom of the foot. Three different densities of EVA are used to ensure the correct amount of support to each area of the foot. A GORE-TEX waterproof/breathable membrane provides confident protection from the elements and t
A Lightweight, Zero Gravity EVA midsole reinforces the support of the insole and upper of the Men’s Alta GTX while a TPU heel counter protects the bottom of the foot from shock and provides torsional support to the ankles. A full-length nylon shank imbedded between the insole and the midsole softens the impact of roots and rocks underfoot. The IceLock Hypergrip outsole delivers traction in all wet or dry conditions and varied terrain.
The TrekSta Men’s Alta GTX backpacking boot is available in men’s full and half sizes. To keep the leather on this boot in good shape, and to prevent water absorption in the upper for the life of the boot, you should apply a fabric and leather conditioner as well as a waterproofing treatment (both sold separately).

Likes: Very well constructed boot with unbelievable traction on all surfaces!. Was not sure about the height of the boot for support with a heavy pack, but they do very well. Also I wanted a boot that offered no toe jam and this is it, with Treksta's Nesfit toe box. A little big feeling at first but once you get use to it...NICE!
Dislikes: Why would Treksta put 63" laces on a 5.5" ht boot? Unless you like to catch your laces on a branch come on. Replaced with REI waterproof 48" laces...problem solved.
Now the fit, NOWHERE does anybody mention to DOWNSIZE. I had to emailed Treksta about this and they suggested my normal shoe size(11) I have always plus upped a half size in all my hiking boots with no liners. I am now purchasing a pair of 10.5's ( seems to be too much play in the 11's hmmm?)to see which size I can work the best, since I like these boots a lot (remember no toe jam!!)....Thanks for the return policy BCE!!What great e-tailer.
