Specifically designed for the female hiker. PLASMA GTX is lightweight, flexible, agile and ultra comfortable while offering amazing traction and support- even on the most technical trails. For women who prefer mobility over ankle support and want to move faster with lightweight packs for long distances. The women’s specific anatomic last is shaped on a lower heel and instep volume compared to our men’s anatomic last. Combined with the overlap design and self locking lace, PLASMA S GTX offers a great out-of-the box fit. Utilizing the C.A.S. machine, the footbed and upper are fully customizable to the individual’s anatomy. This is a great solution for women with narrow heels who often suffer blistering and a lack of precision from their shoes. In only 20 minutes, one can experience an in-store customization process that results in a personalized and unique fit. Lined with Gore-Tex® Extended Comfort for the maximum level of breathability and waterproofness. Exclusive Vibram® outsole with Megagrip compound for approach-like grip on rocky and wet terrain.
Following the success of the award winning FORGE, the first customizable trekking boot, we are proud to introduce for 2019, Plasma, the first customizable low-cut hiking shoe. Following the same process, using the C.A.S. machine, everyone can have their own custom-fit shoe. You can now expect a level of comfort, precision and performance that meets your individual needs.

The first high-end, customizable footbed built specifically to match the unique last of our shoes.
All the benefits of a customized arch support without the disadvantages (trimming and changing the foot positioning) of expensive after-market solutions
The first heat-customizable low-cut shoe in the industry.
Tailor-made around each foot for perfect comfort, support, foot-hold and zero break-in period.
Maximum emphasis has been placed on building one of the most flexible, yet supportive, low-cut shoes in the market.
Inspired from ski boot design, we created a new, unique construction that allows us to attain the maximum comfort and performance from our anatomical last and customization features.
Premium upper materials offer water repellency and durability. Gore-tex® liners provide the ultimate combination of waterproofness and breathability.
We designed an innovative lacing solution that matches our anatomic fit.
High tenacity Kevlar® loops are used instead of the classic metal hooks. When combined with the uniquely textured laces, consistent tension is maintained throughout the day.
We wanted to create a new, out-of-the box fit experience that is both comfortable and precise. To achieve this goal, we designed a unique last, which is a true mirror of the foot. With its fully anatomical shape, this new last delivers unparalleled fit and allows Tecnica to pre-shape the FORGE and FORGE S with anatomical precision.
STANDARD TREKKING LAST:
All outdoor boots are designed and built around a generic last. Each brand has a different solution; each searching to accommodate the widest range of feet.
TECNICA’S ANATOMICAL LAST:
We created a true, fully anatomical last, including malleolar pads and a fully supportive arch. As the last is the starting point for every shoe, this unique approach allowed us to create a new generation of Trekking boots - completely anatomical, pre-shaped, precise, supportive and comfortable.
- Anatomically supportive arch and consequently anatomically supportive foot-bed
- Anatomically shaped ankle with malleolar pads for a fully pre-shaped cuff
Custom designed outsole offers great traction, agility and a high level of support.
