Gelert Argyll Multi-Activity Shoes (2013)

Robust-looking shoes with an aggressive sole and supportive suede and mesh upper. Plenty of padding makes them very comfortable from the box, and the wide toebox will feel great for women with broad toes. The lacing system is a little stiff, making it almost impossible to achieve any tension across the toes if the fit is loose, but they do tighten up securely across the tongue so still offer reasonable support. Shock absorption is excellent, even on concrete, and the sole grips really well too, especially on rock. Quite a warm shoe, although the mesh panels help breathability, and it has tough heel and toe bumpers to protect against knocks. A full-sock waterproof membrane keeps water out.
