Tested: The Tecnica Forge Trekking Boot

Each year we head to the Outdoor Retailer show to find the latest innovations in outdoor gear. One of the products we are most excited about this year is the new hiking boot from Tecnica, which uses a heat molding process to custom fit each pair of boots. They claim to have zero break-in time, so we snagged a pair off the showroom floor, got them molded, and headed to a local mountain to test them out.
