Hora…..approach shoe is like a stiff soled trainer for walking into crags for climbing or scrambling usually has a stiff sole, sticky rubber and reinforced toed box like below
or a low trainer like walking shoe
both have soles that will deal with terror pins better and vibram soles are really grippy
TK MAxx have allsorts in
zamberlan recently Goretex approach shoe £30
or try hitec/regatta/brasher/karrimor …… have a look and try on
the soles are better for walking as wellPosted 4 years agoTraceySubscriber
Ive used Five Tens for years, on my second pair. Kevin has been the same. As the girls have been growing we bought them skate shoes from TK Max.
We did a Fathersday ride which took in what we know as potato alley in the Peak. Abigale asked as we are now the same shoe size if she could try my Five Tens and I use her DC skate shoes. By the time we got to the bottom I wanted them back but didnt get them back till the end of the ride.
Abigale couldnt believe how good they were and as such have ordered her a pair.
To me they are worth every pennyPosted 4 years agojustatheoryMember
I bought those Sombrio ones for £45 from CRC. Yes they are as mingin as everyone has been saying, but they look tough, they’re leather and have a flap covering laces so should be pretty weather proof. They’ll end up covered in mud eventually anyway so who cares what they look like.Posted 4 years ago
