YOU ARE SETTING OFF ON PASSABLE PATHS
Lastly, for treks that for the most part take place off the beaten track, where cairns are sometimes your only point of reference, it is preferable to opt for stiff and higher cut boots, offering maximum protection. Névé crossings, ascending in scree and other passages with rock climbing on offer will subsequently be approached with greater confidence. The GR20, renowned as one of the hardest treks in Europe, offers the perfect terrain for this type of boot.
About THE SOLES?
Another very important feature of trekking boots is the sole. By providing grip and adhesion, it actually makes the trekker safer. To let each of us, depending on our preferences, opt for flexible or stiff boots whatever the type of terrain, we, at Forclaz, have decided to offer the maximum amount of adhesion on all our models, whether made for passable paths or off the beaten track.
It's our commitment to safety. Are you setting off soon? Find out how to properly choose your trekking poles!
