Approach Shoes

Approach shoes are a hybrid footwear which combine hiking/walking boots and rock climbing shoes. An approach shoe that's fitted correctly can be worn for either hiking or scrambling, and in some cases for low grade climbing.

Approach shoes generally have a sole made from the same kind of sticky rubber you find on climbing shoes, and this helps you to stick to the rock when scrambling or climbing. They are usually the perfect footwear for most approaches to crags, where the terrain can be rocky, slippery or uneven. Climbers generally prefer to wear them over hiking boots, as approach shoes are lighter, more versatile and more breathable.

We stock a wide range of approach shoes from leading brands such as Scarpa, La Sportiva and Five Ten, and have a good range for both men and women. Our approach shoes are great for rock climbers, lightweight mountain travel, fell walking and hill walking, or just strong, durable shoes for everyday use. 

You can use the filter menu or quick collection links to help refine your search.
