The Epic Women line was conceived and designed by an almost all-female team with the following three factors at the heart of its creation:
- · NEED – detailed research was carried out to discover the real needs of today’s female mountain, hill and nature lovers.
- · CONSTRUCTION – the boots have technical features built specifically to accommodation the foot, the fit and the posture of women.
- · SPIRIT – the range captures the fearless spirit of the first female ‘climbers’, who challenged the prejudices of their time and made history by opening the way in mountains and in life for all women.

The 330 Marie GTX is dedicated to Marie Paradis – the first women to reach the summit of Mont Blanc.

The 332 Henriette GTX is dedicated to Henriette d’Angeville. In 1838, the noblewoman and French traveler challenged opposing opinions, bad omens and heavy prejudices to follow her uncontrollable desire to climb Mont Blanc. At 44, with six guides and two bearers, she conquered extreme ascents and the cold and high altitude. Considered cray at the start, eventually she was celebrated when she came back safe and sound after her heroic adventure made her the second woman to have climbed Mont Blanc.
