The FORCE STRIKER TEXAPORE MID is a great little hiking boot for the junior world explorer. It does everything a proper kids' hiking boot should do. It's waterproof, supports the foot extremely well and has a sure-grip sole.It provides the perfect combination of good stability and comfortable cushioning. The heel and toe protectors stabilise, support and guide the child's foot, and the EVA midsole gives good cushioning. This is particularly important on longer hikes. And the special tread ensures good grip on any terrain.Given how versatile the FORCE STRIKER TEXAPORE MID is, it is remarkably light. This is partially due to the synthetic materials, which also make the boot hard wearing and easy to maintain.
