Protection from sand
This shoe features an integrated gaiter, which prevents sand from entering the shoe.
For better protection against sand, we recommend pairing this shoe with the Desert 500 trousers.
Depending on the terrain, what type of boot would you recommend?
We designed these boots for sandy deserts. Indeed, the sole is very flexible, allowing your foot to roll through properly, which is ideal for walking on sand dunes. If you are trekking in a sand desert (e.g. the erg in the Sahara), these boots are ideal. If, on the other hand, you are trekking on hard rocky ground (e.g. the reg in the Sahara), then we would recommend some mountain trekking boots instead.
Why is it more breathable?
In the desert, there is no need for waterproof boots! However, most boots are waterproof thanks to a membrane that keeps the water out.
Given the desert boot's lack of a membrane, it is all the more breathable.
How to choose the size of your desert boot
In the desert (or in warm climates), the feet tend to swell. So, do not hesitate to take one size up from your usual size to ensure a comfortable trek.
