The Best New Walking Shoes And Boots For 2019


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

Here is a selection of the best new shoes for your 2019 outdoor adventures

A new, multi-functional outdoor shoe – perfect for hiking and camping – with a host of sustainable features including Hanwag’s PFC-free EcoShell lining and TubeTec Ecosole unit. The upper is made from two different leathers (suede and waxed suede) from the renowned Perwanger tannery. The outsole is made from 75% recycled materials – reducing the amount of virgin materials required for production.

The new Trekker Lite III GTX is the third generation of this successful Aku boot. It’s robust enough for rocky terrain but light and comfortable to wear all day. Its suede upper features AKU’s Air8000 technology for breathability.

Italian-designed Karraig has been specifically built for technical ascents and backpacking trips. Constructed with a premium leather and performance mesh upper, with a full length shank and a high rebound PU midsole for cushioning and stability. Other features designed to improve fit and support include an integrated dynamic ankle support, contoured heel lock and lace-locking eyelet in when traversing undulating terrains. Cleansport NXT odour control is designed to keep your feet comfortable and dry whatever the conditions.

The Samaris Crosstrek is a new water-friendly, breathable trekking sandal that is perfect for heading out on the hills in the hot summer months. The adjustable lacing system can be customised for your own personalised fit

A sporty but extremely robust low-cut hiking shoe designed for comfortable walking in alpine terrain. The Ducan uses a unique mix of technologies for a comfortable fit. The Flextron Technology uses a steel plate, with flexible waves integrated into the lasting foot bed. The waves follow the natural, biomechanical movement of the foot, a combination of which results in more stability during all walking phases due to better distribution of power and pressure, improved posture, anatomically correct foot position, and, in turn, has a positive effect on the person’s performance

Price TBC
The new Trento walking shoe – available for men and women – takes the best features of Vango’s walking boots and puts them into the lighter and more compact shoes that campers love. These are perfect for day walks and low level hiking from the campsite. The polyester/suede upper is designed to keep your feet dry and cool while the rugged sole provides plenty of grip on slippy terrain.
