Putting your best foot forward on challenging terrain has just got easier, thanks to the extensive range of speciality walking boots and hiking footwear now available to buy online from outdoor clothing and equipment experts, OutdoorGB.com.
The variety of shoes has been carefully chosen by the experienced team at the firm, and is designed to cater for the novice walker through to the well-versed hiker. Engineered for specific terrains and environments, your feet are sure to be the envy of all in your party whether you’re hiking in the Himalayas or just enjoy a more leisurely walk in the Peak District.
For advanced mountaineering and hiking along high routes in the mountains, Alpine boots are essential. Designed to be compatible with crampons, OutdoorGB.com’s range of Alpine boots are perfect for those requiring specialist support in extreme environments, such as glacier and ice climbing. The Zamberlan Kontact GT RR Alpine Boots 3900 utilises the best of leather and fabric to allow maximum movement while the microtex wicking nylon collar controls excess moisture. The Zamberlan easy “step-in” system makes the boots stiff enough to use with semi-rigid crampons.
Hiking boots for harsher trails are also available from OutdoorGB and give a superior level of comfort, grip and ankle support. The Zamberlan Napo GT Plus Hiking Boots 143 is supple and comfortable and features a low cut design for quicker and easier movement. The boots are lined with innovative Gore-Tex material for excellent protection and breathability and also feature Zamberlan Dual-Grip PU sole for traction, durability and better comfort.
Chief executive of OutdoorGB.com and SailGB.com, Edward Giles, said, “We know how important it is to have the right equipment with you when you set out on a trip, and to have high quality support that won’t let you down when the going gets tough. This is why we stock a high quality range of boots that will ensure your feet stay protected even when venturing in the most demanding of conditions.”
Mountains with harsh terrains call for undivided support for the feet and ankles, and the Zamberlan Baffin GT RR Mountain Boots 634 features a foot wrapping system, which firmly holds the foot in place and allows a precise fit. Zamberlan’s Rubber Reinforcement System enhances protection to the upper, giving a comprehensive mountaineering solution.
Mr Giles added, “We recommend Zamberlan because they are excellent in their craft, thanks to their years of experience. The company is based at the foot of the Italian Small Dolomite mountains, and so their expertise is born of necessity, because they live and work in a mountainous environment.”
The firm also stocks a variety of trekking boots suitable for hiking, long excursions and military use. La Sportiva Trango Trek 347 Micro EVO GTX GRIGIO Trekking Boots give a snug fit and comfort along with the rugged durability that is crucial when going off-trail and carrying heavy loads. For countryside treks and hillside walks, the firm suggest Contour Nevada Walking Boots. The lightweight boot gives padding for sharp or uneven surfaces while the supple calf leather and waterproof, breathable lining ensure feet stay warm and dry on even the most arduous of trips.
