Berghaus Explorer Trail Low GTX

A comfortable, pretty full-on shoe that pushed the top two quite hard. It’s quite heavy compared to some, but this translates into protection and support on rough ground. The fit is quite neutral, meaning it should suit most feet, but the lacing doesn’t extend very low at the toe, and this adversely affected stability on steep descents. The midsole is stiffish, without being over the top, and the outsole worked well on soft ground and didn’t do a bad job on rock. Top value for money, too.
