New for Fall 2010, the über lightweight Timber Lite joins the line of improbably light, waterproof hikers from GoLite Footwear. As part of the Class 1 collection, the Timber Lite is the penultimate boot for peak bagging: lightweight, stable and protective, yet agile, and boasting new technologies and materials to make even the longest day seem short.

Featuring GoLite Footwear’s new BareTech technology, the Timber Lite utilizes a proprietary EVA Paw Pad™ sole for exceptionally lightweight, low-profile shock attenuation, TPE caging for flexible support and protection, and a resin-impregnated plate for torsional and longitudinal rigidity.

Weighing in at a feathery 15 oz or less, the Timber Lite combines a waterproof high-top silhouette with the best lightweight protection and Soft Against the Ground Technology, to deliver the ride of a trail runner and the performance of a boot. Really, can you ask for anything more in a boot? The Timber Lite is perfect for any adventure, no matter where you go.
