Trekking & hiking shoes – For freedom of movement
If you know your hiking route consists mainly of easy terrain, then opt for trekking or hiking shoes. These are much lighter and more breathable than boots! For example, they offer your ankle more freedom of movement and your feet higher walking comfort. You'll be spoilt for choice in our trekking and hiking shoe category – as we have a large range full of low and mid-height models. The faster you expect to walk, the more breathable and lightweight your trekking shoe should be. But more breathability also means thinner and less robust uppers. Regardless of whether the upper material is leather or synthetic, a good outdoor shoe should also be waterproof with a profiled, non-slip and abrasion-resistant outsole.
