Ideal for wet and warm conditions, a waterproof and breathable membrane is built into the upper part of the boot to keep feet fresh and dry from wet grass and terrain or damp weather. This moisture-wicking, breathable lining is imperative for all day long foot comfort and will keep you out hiking for longer, however changeable the conditions.

Lightweight construction to the walking boots and shoes from Hoggs is an essential criteria for hiking footwear, designed to relieve foot fatigue and make walking easier and more enjoyable. This is achieved by using a blend of materials including suede, mesh, leather and synthetic fabrics that ensure a lightweight shoe.

Energy and comfort to the feet as you walk is heightened by a super comfortable cushioned midsole and a padded cut away collar to protect feet. Shock absorbing pads within the removable cushioned insole will absorb any impact caused by rocky or uneven ground, designed to let you walk miles and miles.

Superb grip and traction is essential and each Hoggs walking boot and shoe features excellent traction from a cleated rubber sole to keep you safely upright on slippery or muddy conditions. The hardy and abrasion resistant Vibram sole on the Munro Classic has alternate lugs and a smooth surface to aid traction and grip across a range of surfaces plus great comfort and protection from knocks or bumps.

In terms of comfort and cushioning, a walking boot will win over a wellington every time, cushioning the feet with each step and keeping your feet dry and comfortable. A decent pair of walking socks will also add to foot comfort and protection, give energy to your feet and prevent blisters by rub or damp conditions.

Designed to let you walk miles and miles in all types of conditions, walking boots are a welcome treat for your feet, cushioning and absorbing impact, keeping feet dry and waterproof and exceptionally comfortable throughout your day.
