Contour Track

These multi-activity shoes from Contour are very comfortable, with padded mesh uppers and a secure fit. The stiffness in the midsole and fairly high ankle cuff provide good support over most types of terrain, and there is adequate protection at the toe and heel. The Tracks are quite heavy, mainly because of the chunky sole and extra padding on the uppers, but they provide enough support and grip for most surfaces, and the Hydro-Ban lining works well to keep your feet dry. The only negative is that they get a little sweaty on warmer days.

Verdict: Good quality at a very fair price, these shoes are definitely worth a look if you’re on a tight budget. They’re comfortable and the secure fit would also suit those with narrower feet.
