The X-SCAPE NBK Mid is full trail on the outside and slipper boot on the inside

Deckers X Lab recently launches the trail ready X-SCAPE NBK Mid. A hybrid of street sneaker meets hiking boot with the comfort of a slipper, the NBK Mid with its Vibram® N-Oil Litebase outsole excels as a water repellent all-day boot.

The X-SCAPE NBK ECOTAN Leather upper is built into an Xponent HD midsole, which is a high rebounding and lightweight performance foam. Other features include a Meta-Rocker geometry and a flared swallow tail that enhances the feeling and performance from the natural stride associated with movement and furthering the philosophies of Deckers X Lab’s “Flow Wear”. Each natural stride is further enhanced with the addition of a Vibram® N-Oil Litebase outsole, which is made with more than 90% natural materials, providing an eco-conscious, lightweight, and extremely grippy base for the NBK.

The X-SCAPE NBK Mid is intended to be an all-day sneaker boot with extensive attention to details of comfort and stability, through all conditions and across all terrain.

Always mindful of the supply chain, the X-SCAPE NBK Mid is made in collaboration with the HERproject. A collaborative initiative that creates partnerships with brands like Deckers to empower and educate women in the workplace.
