The perfect hiking shoes for fall

Fall and winter bring a show of colors and create a unique setting for outdoor hiking. However, the season change is also a challenge for hiking enthusiasts. The ground is often wet and slippery, making it essential to wear the right footwear in order to ensure safety and comfort. Check out the most important features to look for when choosing the perfect hiking shoes for fall.

Water resistance and insulation

When the rains arrive and puddles form on the ground, it is essential to wear waterproof hiking shoes. The upper part of the shoes should be made of water-resistant materials, such as Gore-Tex or SympaTex membranes. These technical solutions help keep your feet dry even in wet conditions.
Moreover, at this time of the year temperatures can be cold, with a strong temperature range between early morning and midday. In the fall, it is important to choose hiking shoes that provide proper thermal insulation and good breathability. This will always help keep your feet in the right conditions without suffering for excessive heat or cold.

Safe walking, even in wet weather

A sturdy, slip-resistant sole is essential for tackling autumnal muddy and slippery terrain. In the fall, shoes with grooved rubber soles have a higher gear. They can provide optimal grip on wet and dry surfaces. Vibram soles are specifically famous for their wear-resistance and traction that suits any surface.
When walking on uneven and slippery terrain, ankle support becomes even more important. Tall and mid-cut hiking shoes provide greater stability and ankle protection. This can help prevent injuries and sliding while hiking.

San Marco’s All Terrain shoe line

All Terrain hiking shoe line is specifically designed for spring and autumn. All models are waterproof and will keep your feet dry at all times thanks to the SympaTex membrane. This waterproof, breathable technological fabric allows perspiration but prevents water from seeping inside the shoes.
Seams are made with great care and well sealed to prevent water infiltration. Vibram or San Marco soles ensure safe walking while trekking or hiking. Vintage and Civetta shoes also feature a shock-absorbing system that supports the foot and increases comfort. Colors range from cream to beige and from sage green to gray, all of which perfectly match fall colors.
