Walking shoes are designed to protect your feet without compromising your mobility. Ideally suited to more gentle tracks and trails, they evolved to give boot-like traction and durability in a low-cut, comfortable fit. They are lightweight and agile, offering an ideal solution for walks when high-ankled boots would be overkill. Many have a waterproof lining (often GORE-TEX XCR) to keep your feet dry, making them great for year-round use in the UK. Hiking shoes without a waterproof lining are more ventilated and a better choice for warm, dry conditions.
