Where are you going?
As diverse as the outdoor experiences are, so diverse is the range of outdoor shoes. So the first question is always: Where are you going? Glacier or jungle? Mountain peaks or low mountain ranges? The second question is about to follow: What terrain is being walked on? Do you walk on paved roads, dirt roads or rough terrain? Because there is the optimal shoe for every terrain.
Outdoor shoes for hiking in the lowlands
If you run mainly on flat ground or with slight inclines, for example on a long distance hike, on a city trip or when travelling, then shoes that have good cushioning properties and thus cushion the vibrations when running on asphalt are an advantage. They do not have to be cut ankle-high like hiking boots, which saves weight. A light, well cushioned hiking shoe with a good profile and low bootleg is just the right thing here. In our shop section for hiking and approach shoes you will find a large selection of hiking shoes.
Outdoor shoes for mountain hikes
If you leave the paved paths and are in the mountains on unpaved and impassable terrain, a hiking boot should be ankle-high in any case. This is the only way to provide the foot with the necessary stability, for example to have a firm hold on scree, and to protect it from buckling sideways. A stiff sole with a good profile provides sure-footedness and support. Classic, high hiking boots such as hiking boots or trekking boots are just the right thing here. They form the transition from light, well cushioned hiking boots to trekking boots with a firmer sole and high upper.
Outdoor shoes for alpine mountaineering
Shoes for alpine mountaineering have a particularly firm sole. This gives the climber even more grip on small treads. Another characteristic of mountain boots for alpine mountaineering is their crampon resistance. Only in this way equipped one can master also high tours over 3000m height. The upper materials are even more robust than hiking boots to meet the higher demands of alpine mountaineering. Mountain boots and alpine touring shoes are the right choice for alpine tours. In our shop category for mountain and alpine boots you will find a large selection - from entry-level models to expedition shoes.
Outdoor shoes for sport climbing
Climbing shoes already look fundamentally different from hiking or mountain boots. They sit very close to the foot, have a sole without profile and a firm toe protection. So you can also find a foothold in narrow crevices in the rock or on a small step in the hall. They are made exclusively for climbing - both in the climbing hall and on the rock - and are unsuitable for running on impassable terrain. This is where access shoes are used. These are light hiking boots with a low bootleg and a non-slip sole, which climbers can use, for example, to climb up to the rock face without having to pack the large, heavy climbing boots. However, climbing trails or easy climbing can also be done with climbing shoes or approach shoes - provided you are experienced and have the necessary stability of the ligaments and joints to prevent sprains of the ankle at the first unevenness.
Outdoor shoes for mountain hiking with lots of luggage
If you are travelling with a lot of luggage - from a weight of 10 - 15 kg you need even more support than with light luggage - regardless of the terrain. An ankle-high shoe with a firm sole and a strong profile is recommended. This way you can balance the extra weight and have a secure kick. A sturdy, high-cut hiking shoe, trekking shoe or mountain shoe is the right choice here.
