Dragontail MNT GTX - Women's (Fall 2020)
Low-cut and sticky approach shoe with the stiffness of a boot
For the mountaineer who prefers a low cut shoe, but still needs the stiffness and stability of a boot. The bi-density Vibram® Maton outsole features an extra-sticky compound in the toe and heel areas to ascend and descend in confidence. Ideal for approach, alpine guide training days, high alpine traversing.
The Dragontail MNT GTX features 'Alpine Tech Fit': a very precise and tight fit, with a tapered toe, which causes a reduction in the width of the sole of the foot.
This feature can make you perceive it as too narrow, especially if you are not a habitual user.
In these cases, or if you have not already tried this type of footwear, we suggest that you buy a size higher than the one you normally wear (for example, if you normally wear a 7, choose the size 7.5).
When first trying these shoes on, be sure to loosen the laces all the way to the toe before putting them on.

Garmont's Anatomically Directed Design (a.d.d.®) enables your foot's natural ability to stabilize, absorb shock, and propel forward. Fit is enhanced by closely matching design and function to the natural asymmetric shape of your feet.
The ankle cuff is lower on the outside and taller on the inside for better edging, greater overall stability and comfort when traversing and scrambling.
