8 Of The Best Walking Shoes

Camping Magazine - 8 of the Best Walking Shoes

Whether your walking adventures take you onto the hills, along low-level footpaths or simply to the nearest pub, you’ll need the right kind of footwear.

These shoes are made for walking… and that’s just what you’ll do.

TIPS FOR BUYING WALKING SHOES

1 Speak to an expert. A retailer that specialises in outdoor footwear is a great first step (pun intended). Most suppliers have a facility on their website to find a shop near you.

2 Check the components. Lots of specialist items are sourced… As ever, it’s a question of what works best for you.

3 Look for other aspects, such as where the last is made (Europe is usually best for European wearers etc), lacing styles etc.

4 Consider your terrain. Where you walk has a huge bearing on what shoes are most suitable.

Here's what they had to say about our Skyetrail shoe.

"Trail walking? Fast hiking? More? This is the type of shoe for you, offering a level of comfort and sturdiness. The upper is a mix of suede and ballistic (ie harder wearing) polyester, with a Tri.aria membrane for waterproofing/breathability. The sole is from Vibram, the company that’s been making such products since 1937. It’s combined with Anatom’s own Bioform Ultralite insole and nylon footbed. Typical weight is 746 for a pair of size 10s. In men’s and women’s versions.

Key features Vibram Sky Running sole, Tri.aria lining, suede/polyester mesh upper, phylon midsole, heel cradle support system"
