The Best Summer Walking Shoes

Calling all walkers! If you’re heading out for a walk, hike or trek, the most important gear you’ll need are the shoes on your feet. Having the correct footwear can mean the difference between a comfortable, pain-free journey and having to call it quits after only a short stretch. Matching your footwear to the terrain is essential but even more so in changeable weather. Swap your heavy winter walking boots to some lightweight summer walking shoes that your feet will thank you for. Whether you are going on short strolls by the beach or longer hill walks or climbs, we recommend that you switch up your footwear. Walking shoes will help you with faster movements and the ability to climb without feeling weighted. Although, in comparison to boots you do lose some ankle support but you can be the judge of where and when you wear them according to the difficulty of the walk.

How to choose the best summer walking shoes for you?

Buying the best fitting shoes is imperative to avoid sore, blistered feet. Trespass Top Tips to choosing the right pair for you:

  1. Store vs online – We would recommend going into the Trespass store to try the walking shoes on. Yes, you can buy online and send them back if they don’t fit but the guidance you’ll get in store is second to none and the sales assistants will be able to help you find your best fit. When you’re in a store we would recommend picking the shoe up to feel the overall weight before trying them on.
  2. Walking socks – Try your shoes on with some thick hiking socks, this will determine your true size. To find out more about walking socks click here
  3. Do the ‘twist’ – I know what you’re thinking… it’s not the dance move… Yes, twist the shoe to see the flex and movement in it.
  4. Find your fit – Try on a few pairs to get a feel for them. Use the shop floor as your pretend runway! Remember there’s different styles and colours to choose from at Trespass. Shop our Walking Shoes and Walking Socks here >>>
  5. Comfort – Lastly, comfort but definitely not least! Comfort should always be your number one. You will know yourself if the shoe is a little tight or if your toes are rubbing against the top of the shoe that’s why number 3 is so important. Have a walk around to check your foot isn’t too cramped or worse… sliding.
