The Skee-Tex Xtream boots are made incorporating a Vibram sole. Vitali Bramani first came up with the alternative idea of lugged, rubber boot soles after losing 6 friends on a mountain climb partly blamed on their dubious footwear. Vitali's idea was to create boot soles that were durable, abrasion-resistant, functional and safe to use on a variety of surfaces, from hard-packed snow and forest floors to bare rock and loose scree slopes. As years passed, more varieties of Vibram soles were developed, some with the main focus on superior traction and others with an emphasis on longevity and durability. So in the Xstream boot you have the legendary boot design of Skee-Tex fitted with possibly the best sole for rough ground.
