How to choose your walking shoes and boots.


Whether it's the GR20 or the Saint James of Compostella pilgrimage, if you have the urge to walk through the mountains or follow famous walking routes, you will want to know how to choose your walking shoes or boots.

First, we must distinguish between high-cut and low-cut shoes and boots.

High-cut shoes and boots: ideal for relieving stress on the ankle when carrying a heavy rucksack and/or walking over very uneven terrain. Top-choice model: Meindl Island. For exceptional cushioning: Lowa Renegade. For energetic walking while climbing and descending, including in the snow: Millet High-Route.
Low-cut shoes and boots: ideal if you aren’t carrying the heavy load of a rucksack and/or you like walking through gentler terrain. Top-choice model: Merrell Moab.

In any case, it is best to go with a Vibram® sole: its extreme grip is effective on both dry and wet surfaces. For waterproof shoes, aim for models with a patented Gore-Tex lining.
