This is our Rock+Run Essentials range. Having been in business since 1983, we've come to appreciate what climbers, hikers, runners and campers really want from their kit - high quality, cost effective products that do exactly what they say on the tin.
Mens approach shoes are a hybrid footwear which combine hiking/walking boots and rock climbing shoes. An approach shoe that's fitted correctly can be worn for either hiking or scrambling, and in some cases for low grade climbing.
Approach shoes generally have a sole made from the same kind of sticky rubber you find on climbing shoes, and this helps you to stick to the rock when scrambling or climbing. They are usually the perfect footwear for most approaches to crags, where the terrain can be rocky, slippery or uneven. Climbers generally prefer to wear them over hiking boots, as approach shoes are lighter, more versatile and more breathable.
