New Dragontail extension designed for people who wear their spirit of adventure on their sleeve

SHORT HILLS, N.J. (March 21, 2022) – Today, Garmont, the premier Italian performance footwear brand, introduces the Dragontail SE, a striking, low-cut approach shoe incorporating Garmont’s updated fit and last for Spring 2022. Hailing from Garmont’s best-selling Dragontail line, the Dragontail SE (Special Edition) is designed for outdoor enthusiasts who look for a technical yet versatile solution.

The Dragontail SE ($140) is a low-cut shoe perfect for the approach, hiking and everyday use. Featuring Garmont’s new fit developed specifically for the North American consumer, the Dragontail SE is designed for those who prefer a wrapped fit but with enough forefoot volume to ensure maximum comfort without sacrificing precision on technical terrain. The Garmont Diamante rubber outsole features multi-directional lugs for optimal stability and traction, and the semi-blocked climbing area on the toe is designed for increased climbing performance. Ultra-lightweight materials and a membrane-free design make these shoes the ideal choice for hiking on tough trails, even on the warmest days.

Key features:

  • MSRP: $140

  • Sizes: 5 – 13 US

  • 1.6mm suede leather upper with ultralight Efoam inserts on the toe box and heel area for added protection

  • Lace-to-toe closure for better climbing performance and customized fit

  • PU footbed with moisture and odor management properties

  • Membrane-free design for breathability on warm days

  • FrameFlex Lite insole provides stability for edging and hauling loads on rough trails and descents

The limited-edition Dragontail SE is an expansion of Garmont’s best-selling Dragontail line, which offers low- and mid-cut approach shoes and hiking boots. The introduction immediately follows the launch of Garmont’s redesigned website.
