EXCURSION INTO THE WINTER WORLD - NO PROBLEM WITH THE RIGHT FOOTWEAR
When looking for winter shoes, you need to know what you need them for. Not every shoe is suitable for every terrain and every location. If your main concern is to keep your feet warm at all times, then order winter shoes that are lined. However, if you want warm and dry feet, then choose waterproof winter shoes that are lined and breathable. Icy surfaces and frozen ground also require a non-slip tread and an excellent sole so you never slip. High-quality and sure-footed winter shoes are among the most important pieces of equipment for all hiking and mountain tours in wintry regions.
WELL ON FOOT THROUGH THE WHITE PRAC
Winter shoes in particular often have to cope with uncomfortable conditions, support the foot with every step and keep it warm and dry even on the longest trekking tours. With winter shoes, the upper material determines whether the shoe is waterproof. Don't let it spoil your fun on hiking, trekking or mountain tours, but opt for high-quality materials such as suede, nubuck leather or nylon. The shoe is rounded off with a vulcanised rubber sole that does not allow any moisture to penetrate.
However, if you prefer a leisurely stroll through the winter forest in glistening snow, then warmly lined boots are the perfect companions that also look good. For hiking on dry winter days, winter shoes made of water-repellent leather are a warm and sure-footed partner. Remember that leather shoes must be impregnated with appropriate care products beforehand so that you can enjoy them for a long time.
EVEN BELOW FREEZING THROUGH SNOW AND ICE
An important criterion when choosing the right winter shoe is protection against the cold, because ice-cold feet halfway through a run are annoying and certainly won't give you any pleasure. The lining of winter models is the be-all and end-all. Wool-lined footwear keeps your feet particularly warm and also regulates the moisture balance inside the shoe. Removable inner boots made of felt have also proved their worth, as they can be easily aired out in the evening. Models made of a material mix such as synthetic and wool are also recommended. The combination of materials wicks moisture away from the feet and thus supports a pleasantly dry shoe climate.
When buying shoes, make sure that the upper reaches at least over your ankles - this ensures a secure and firm hold, especially on steep climbs or tours through rough terrain. The sole is also crucial for relaxed winter use. Shoe manufacturers now take the cold of the ground into account and insert an additional insulating midsole that provides pleasant warmth and cushioning.

Your winter adventure stands and falls with the equipment. Therefore, don't compromise and coordinate the purchase of winter shoes with your activities.
