The sturdy soles and great ankle support of the Z-11S boots make for easier going in rocky terrain, whether carrying a heavy backpack or not. Especially in Nordic terrain, where moisture is abundant, their taller shafts reduce hassle in stream crossings. Despite their long shaft, they are not as heavy as you might think. This is partially thanks to the Cordura panels used at the rear part of their shaft.
