Our Review - Scott KinabaluShoe Men:
The Scott KinabaluShoe is the latest in the very successful Kinabalu range which has always had a strong reputation of comfort, protection and grip on rocky, drier terrain. Updates this year include a slightly reduced heal to toe drop but still retains a healthy 8mm drop but the slight reduction provides a little extra stability and a closer to the ground, more agile feel.
The upper made from durable mesh with a no sew construction to reduce the risk of irritation and the form fitting tongue adds further comfort to the fit. A new eRide midsole has been introduced and the materials have previously been a proven success in the RC range which is now filtering down into the standard Kinabalu to provide excellent cushioning and responsiveness across the ground.
Grip wise, the outsole is aimed at rocky, drier terrain were mud is less of a problem. The lug design and rubber compound have proven to grip the ground exceptionally and provide the wearer with confidence to attack the terrain in front of them.
The latest updates to the KinabaluShoe sees the very popular and performance proven shoe take another step up and we are sure this version will prove popular with those who loved the original and newcomers to the brand.
