Trekking shoes: perfect for hikers who want the very best
Mountain boots suitable for outdoor enthusiasts and seasoned explorers.
Knowing how to choose trekking boots to meet your needs, as well as terrain types and seasons is important. But it’s even more fundamental to understand the distinguishing features and recognise the technical specifications that go to make up quality footwear.
Trekking boots: which ones to choose?
When choosing your ideal trekking boots, it’s essential that you can recognize some fundamental characteristics, such as durability, lightness and comfort, especially if you’re planning to be wearing them for long days on the hills. For hiking or fast hiking, boots or low-cut shoes are recommended. These are more flexible than mountaineering-specific shoes, which usually have a higher cuff, and are more rugged and rigid.
Two other aspects to consider when choosing a hiking boot are the weather conditions you expect to encounter and the season you’re planning to be using them in:
- In cold, wet conditions waterproof fabrics such as Gore-Tex membranes are a better choice, as they guarantee excellent breathability and perfect waterproofing, ensuring your feet are well-protected from water, wind and freezing temperatures.
