Tecnica Outdoor has been awarded two awards for its new Forge Collection of thermo-moldable hiking boots: the Backpacker’s Editors’ Choice Award and the ISPO 2018 Product of the Year in the outdoor category.
Tecnica Outdoor launched the Forge Collection of trekking boots that combine a precise anatomical fit right out-of-the box with effective heat moldable customization capabilities in last month to specialty retailers across the country. The collection features a technology new to footwear, Custom Adaptive Shape or C.A.S., that offers a fully heat moldable customization process resulting in a personalized fit in 20 minutes. The C.A.S. technology was first used in Tecnica’s alpine ski boots. The Forge Collection is offered in two models for men and women: the Forge GTX (MSRP $250), with a nubuk upper, and Forge S GTX (MSRP $270), with a proprietary synthetic upper.
