ADD® - ANATOMICALLY DIRECTED DESIGN
From the Ground UP!
Garmont's Anatomically Directed Design (a.d.d.®) enables your foot's natural ability to stabilize, absorb shock, and propel forward. Fit is enhanced to closely matching design and function to the natural asymmetric shape of your feet.
Your foot is an extremely complex anatomical structure: 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 muscles, ligaments and tendons. Garmont® boots are designed to deliver the best mountain experiences. We start from the inside and work outward - by understanding the anatomy of the foot, analyzing movement, and determining what is going to deliver the best performance.
The shoe flexes like your foot for out-of-the-box walking comfort.
ROOMY TOE BOX
Features a straighter shape to accomodate the natural position of the big toe. With this design your toes can provide better balance and propulsion.
DIFFERENTIAL ANKLE PADS
Securely locks the heel in place for a precise fit around the ankle bones for better stability and support.
The ankle cuff is lower on the outside and taller on the inside for better edging, greater overall stability and comfort when traversing and scrambling.
The tongue matches the asymmetric shape of the top of your foot and ankle. It is thicker to the outside and progressively thinner toward the inside. This anatomic shape keeps the tongue in place resulting in better control, stability and comfort.
