Long or short, summer or winter...Discover our advice in order to select a suitable model.

Your choice of hiking boots will depend on 4 criteria: the terrain on which they will be used, the duration of the outing, the weather forecast and the support.

The Different Terrains

Greater comfort and freedom of movement is required when walking across lowland.

On the contrary, when mountain hiking, you will also need the support of a warm shoe.

Duration of Walks

The duration of outings is often linked to level:

over 3hours of walk

For medium to long periods (over 3 hours) you will require built-in cushioning.

less than 3hour of walk

For a short period (less than 3 hours) heel cushioning is adequate.

Weather Conditions

Some people plan outings dependent on good weather, others are more daring. Which category do you generally fall in?

 hiking in all weather

If you are hiking in all weather, you will require waterproofing

require breathability

If you only hike in good weather, you will require breathability.


Dependent on ankle strength, you should choose boots with a high upper for better support, or low upper if you prefer freedom of movement.
