Exploring the snow line and venturing to the mountains, what could be better? Here we give the heads up on good alpine footwear. Look out for a sturdy grip, a waterproof boot with good ankle support. Maybe go for the lighter-weight boots if you are just out for day treks. For more serious expeditions its important to protect your toes. Also look out for high ankle shafts and suitable sole cushioning (mountain boots have differing cushioning for different intended use). e-Outdoor include traction and crampons in the alpine and mountain footwear range as they tuck away neatly in your kit and can make all the difference in compacted snow.
