Tecnica’s Forge is the best fitting hiking boot on the market today not despite the fact that it’s the brand’s first foray into the hiking category, but because of it. Primarily a ski-boot manufacturer, the Italian sportswear company built this hiker using the same true heat-molding technology that have made their ski-boots so popular. The heat-molding process makes it so buyers skip the painful break-in period and get a perfectly fitting hiking boot equipped with Gore-Tex linear and Vibram outsole right out of the gate. The downside to that customization is the buying options for the Tecnica Forge are limited to brick-and-mortar stores that keep it and its boot-fitting robot in stock. But that small hurdle is worth it for a hiking boot that fits better than any you’ll ever put on.
