5 of the best: Footwear

Jon's sambas aren't going to get him up a mountain but are perfect for navigating the Hackney jungle


Lets face it, on some of our projects you are going to be doing some walking. So naturally you'll be wanting to know which boots are going to get you up that hill or through that jungle in the most comfortable fashion, preferably not disintegrating along the way.

Berghaus Explorer Light

With a lightweight Gore-tex design the Berghaus is perfect for treks in warmer climates providing the comfort and breathability that you'll need.

Brasher Lithium GTX

The Brasher is another lightweight boot with a host of special features including a high density moulded midsole for support and comfort as well as a memory foam around the collar of the boot.

Hi-Tec V-Lite Altitude

Salomon 3D Fastpacker Mid GTX

With a Gore-tex shell the Salamon is guaranteed to keep you dry. The gusseted tongue not only relieves the lace pressure but also keeps out any of that unwanted trekking debris.

Flip Flops / Thongs

When the heat goes up you may want to switch to something a little more lightweight. Goes great with speedos.
