Walking Shoes vs Boots
You don’t always need to wear walking boots, sometimes it can feel a bit much to lace up a pair of boots for your walk. Walking shoes are the middle ground between your day to day shoes and walking boots. They still have a rigid sole to help tackle varying terrain, offering more support than a standard pair of trainers, but they’ll feel much lighter on your feet than a pair of boots.
Walking shoes or hiking trainers are ideal for lowland rambles or trail walking. Something to keep your foot in place while walking when you don’t need the ankle support of a boot. Walking shoes are sturdy and make for the ideal day to day shoes, and the range at Decathlon is such good value for money, many people don’t wait till they’re out walking to wear them. Team your hiking shoes up with a fresh pair of walking socks for the ultimate comfort.
If you’re out in warm weather and looking for some outdoor footwear that is even more lightweight, then why not try out our range of walking sandals.
