Kenetrek Mountain Extreme Boots

October 2020
Author: Brady Harang

A serious boot for rugged terrain, the Kenetrek 10" Mountain Extreme is made with 2.8mm full grain leather and one-piece vamp boot uppers – meaning no stitching at the tongue to come loose or allow moisture to penetrate. The uppers sit on top of stiff yet lightweight nylon midsoles with high traction K-TalonTM outsoles. Waterproof, breathable Windtex membrane ensures you stay dry and either Non-insulated, 400 grams or 1,000 grams of ThinsulateTM Insulation for extra temperature protection. Sure to become your favorite boot due to their awesome support, what will really surprise you is just how lightweight and incredibly comfortable they are! Made in Italy.

“When it comes to choosing the right boot, there are a ton of options out there. You need a boot that fits your demands, but it must also fit your foot. If you're looking for the most rugged, dependable boot out there, you should really give the Kenetrek Mountain Extreme a look. For years, these guys have been building boots and testing them in the field themselves. You'll be hard pressed to find a company made up of more hardcore hunters and dedicated craftsmen. When I put a pair of Kenetrek boots on, I always trust that they will hold up.

The comfort side of things is a little trickier. Since their boots are so well built, it takes a lot of time to break them in properly. Be sure and do this! Also, if you have any hot spots or areas that rub, you can send them back and they will mold the boot to your foot. Care for their high-quality leather is also very important, but if you take care of these boots, they'll take care of you. Build quality aside, the Mountain Extreme is most impressive on the steep and rocky terrain. They are the perfect stiffness for technical hiking on moderate to extreme terrain, and it allows you to focus less on your footing and more on your mission. If you're looking to spend time in the more hospitable parts of the world, these boots will perform!” – Brady Harang, Media Producer
