Berghaus Explorer Ridge

The Explorer Ridge is perfect for UK hillwalking. At only 950g per pair, they’re very lightweight, making them suitable for mid to low-level terrain. The ankle cuffs are lower than some, and a fairly flexible midsole helps them stay feeling lightweight and comfortable all day. An excellent pulley lacing system means you can get a secure yet unobtrusive fit across the foot, and well-placed locking eyelets mean you can get tension where you need it. The Gore-Tex lining will keep your feet dry, and the ankle cuffs are sealed fairly high up. The tough rubber sole grips well on most terrain, including mud and rock.
