I've got for (rather UL) trekking and hiking (including overnight stays and longer trips) generally my Inov8 Roclite 315 and 370 - which are perfect for this purpose.
However, their downside is a) not waterproof and b) not very stiff (I'm living in the alps and if going into more difficult/harsh/rocky terrain they are simply too soft).
So, for some hikes (daytours, rainy days, rocky ground) as well as for cycling in the rain or holiday trips, I'm now looking for more robust, waterproof but still lightweight hiking shoes (no boots or mids).
Generally a lot of people are using approach shoes for this purpose.
What I found so far:
- Garmont Dragontail LT GTX
- Garmont Eclipse GTX
- Garmont Zenith GTX
- Scarpa Mystic GTX
- La Sportiva Boulder X
If anyone has an oppinion of my intended use, those shoes or possible (same weight or lighter) alternatives I would love to hear your suggestion!
Thanks a lot,
