If you’re searching for a last-minute Christmas gift for the hiker on your list, look no further. The Mountain Trainer Lite Mid GTX will put a smile on any recipient’s face, both when they open the box and when they’re cruising down the trail.

With to-the-toe lacing, a grippy Pomoca outsole, and a metal cable that runs around the Achilles, holding a wearer’s heel in place, the Mountain Trainer Lite shines on alpine scrambles where balance and security are essential. Its mid-height cuff and supportive EVA midsole means it crushes on backpacking trips as well, and we’ve stayed comfortable under 35-pound loads while wearing this boot on trips into the Tetons.

The Mountain Trainer Lite Mid’s upper is made from TPU-coated fabric with suede inserts, a durable combo that will keep it in hiking shape for years. More holiday cheer: This boot comes in both men’s and women’s versions.
