JR ALP TRAINER MID GTX

A rugged Mid boot for kids

Technology at your feet

The JR Alp Trainer Mid GTX is our first children’s GORETEX® boot with a MICHELIN® sole. Made for hiking and mountain activities, it features a rugged MICHELIN® Jr Ultra Train outsole with deep lugs and Outdoor Compound rubber for an excellent grip and stability on hard terrain.

Safety first

It features a lightweight, flexible and rugged upper, thanks to a mix of coated fabrics and leather inserts, and a membrane GORETEX® Extended Comfort waterproof and breathable membrane: water stays on the outside, while perspiration can easily be dispersed by your child’s feet.

And the OrthoLite shock-absorbing footbed provides excellent cushioning and disperses sweat, so your feet stay cooler and drier.
