Guide Gear® Acadia II Hiking Boots feature performance improvements over the original—premium oiled leather uppers, OrthoLite insoles, and an enhanced fit—for a more comfortable feel that keeps you outside longer. Ortholite open-cell foam insoles are ultra-comfortable, highly breathable, moisture-wicking, and resistant to compression. Even after long-term wear, they hold their shape—so the comfort and fit NEVER change. The open-cell foam is 95%-100% breathable, allowing air to circulate in and around the foam, keeping the interior cooler. And when you DO work up a sweat, open-cell foam wicks away moisture to keep you comfortable. But the OrthoLite insoles are just one part of what makes our Acadia II Hikers so terrific.
Keep control with Vibram Tsavo outsole.
The outsole's 360º multi-traction lugs provide maximum control and stability to keep you on your toes while navigating challenging terrain. Self-cleaning channels eject mud and muck to ensure consistent traction. The toe and heel have large contact areas for grip, even on rocky surfaces, and the undercut heel helps for secure braking, too. All in a durable design for lightweight performance.
Guide Dry: Our Highest Level of Waterproof/Breathable Comfort
Guide Dry® is our own waterproof/breathable technology, designed from the ground up to provide the max in dry comfort while maintaining breathability. The membrane features tiny pores that keep larger waterproof molecules from getting in while allowing much smaller vapor molecules to escape—so there’s none of that stuffy discomfort found on cheap waterproof methods. Guide Dry® is tested and proven to perform at the highest level, and will retain its water-blocking properties long after other waterproof technologies begin to leak.
