Brasher Helium X CR

Amazingly light, especially for a shoe with a waterproof lining. But overall they feel more like a running shoe than a multi-activity shoe. For walking, this will suit those that are prepared to sacrifice comfort and support to save weight, but they are just a bit too flimsy for the really tough stuff unless you have very strong feet and ankles. They are designed to fit very snugly,and this, combined with a gusseted tongue, makes them very hard to get on.
