With waterproof or Gore-Tex hiking shoes, there’s no excuse not to get dirty and embrace the elements.
High-cut hiking shoes help keep nature out of your trail hiking boots where you can enjoy it, are designed for ankle support and provide extra protection from sharps sticks or biting insects and leeches that may try to hijack a ride.
Low-cut hiking shoes are lighter, offering freedom of movement to stone-hop across narrow rivers with agility or conquer well-maintained trails. They’re a favourite for experienced hikers that enjoy moving fast, are confident in their proprioception skills and ankle strength as well as on shorter, less technical hikes where you won’t be burdened by a hefty trail pack.
Whether it’s Vivobarefoot's ultra-thin, puncture-resistant outsole for a close-to-ground feel, Salomon's Contagrip MA outsole for multi-terrrain traction and durability or On Running’s Missiongrip outsole to bite into soft grounds and lock onto slick rocks securely, you’ll find your grip on your next adventure.
