Boreal Mens Tempest Walking Shoes
Your new favourite trail walking shoe. Tempest is lightweight, grippy, weatherproof, comfortable and stylish.
Tempest is a versatile walking shoe for year-round all weather use thanks to its great mix of comfort, grippy outsole and weatherproof lining. Use them for everything from street walking in winter weather to light hiking and crag approaches.
The uppers are constructed from a mix of durable premium quality split leather and synthetic textile. Inside Tempest you find the exceptionally high performance Sympatex Moisture Tech® waterproof breathable lining. Unlike lesser walking shoes, Tempest features board-lasted construction with a full-length mid-sole for better underfoot support on rough terrain. The Vibram™ Omnific outsole has an aggressive tread pattern for superb grip on soft and loose surfaces, is lightweight and well cushioned.
Thanks to the unique structure of Dry-Line® Boreal boots are able to breathe both horizontally and vertically. Regular membrane systems can usually only attempt to breathe horizontally through the upper materials of the boot. In most boots this horizontal breathability is severely restricted by layers of leather, synthetic reinforcements, glue and rubber pieces which all combine to greatly impede the transmission of moisture vapor. Dry-Line® is much more than a waterproof membrane, it is a unique lining system developed by Boreal with superior performance and reliability. Dry-Line® is exclusive to Boreal.
Dry-Line® combines the waterproof laminate Sympatex 337 professional (a Sympatex® membrane with breathable micro-fibre lining) and a leather or synthetic outer layer. Between the membrane and lining is an air space created by a monofilament pile layer. Moisture vapor inside the boot enters this air space and is ‘pumped’ out of the boot during normal walking action. This vertical chimney like movement of water vapor is a key part of what makes Dry-Line® superior to other membrane systems.
Trekking shoes require a snug fit around the heel area to prevent unwanted movement which can lead to excessive friction and blisters. HFS is a system of anatomically shaped high quality foam padding which helps to comfortably hold the heel securely whilst accommodating different heel shapes.
