what hiking trainers?
I need some new trainers for hiking. I currently have an old pair (bought 2005) of Meindl GTX that have been brilliant but they’re now rather knackered. I’ve had a look in Blacks and a couple of other outdoor shops and it seems there’s quite a few on the market from North face, Salomon, Berghaus etc the usual names. They’ll be used mainly for all day walks in Snowdonia.Posted 3 years agoCougarSubscriber
Salomon or Berghaus would be my choice.
I’ve had two pairs of Sal’s on the bounce that I’ve used as day-to-day footware and wouldn’t hesitate to buy a third when the current pair die. (Salomon Vega, if memory serves; on offer at Go Outdoors every once in a while.)
When shopping for walking boots and after trying every pair in the shop, I plumped for a Berghaus GTX offering and they’ve (sorry) not put a foot wrong since I bought them.
I know you’re not looking for exactly what I’ve bought, but if they’re anything to go by as an example of the brand then I can’t recommend either highly enough.Posted 3 years agoJamieMember
I bought some Merrell Moab Vents from John Lewis last week, £40 in the sale. Think they are stopping selling them so banging them out for 50% RRP. Seem comfy enough, so might be worth having a look/ringing local JL store.
….on a side note, they size weird. 9s in most things, but needed a 10.Posted 3 years agojambalayaSubscriber
@cfh reassuringly expensive I imagine !
I’ve finally worn out my Salomons and will get another pair, the GTX look good to me. EDIT: I’ve just noticed they have a variety of shoes with GTS, you can get more hiking shoe type or more running type, I have the hiking / approach shoe type. I have some North Face boots which have been very good too, so I have brand loyalty there also.Posted 3 years agoesselgruntfuttockMember
I’ve got some Teva’s & wide feet, very comfy in mine & I’ve just worn them for 2 weeks walking around a volcanic island & theyr’e still top notch. My 1st Salomons were bombproof but my last pair wore out really quickly. Also got some North Face Goretex jobbies which are performing well.Posted 3 years ago
