Outdoor Footwear Approach-Shoes MS Speed Beat GTX Salewa
MS Speed Beat GTX

A fast-paced waterproof hiking shoe with strong grip and stability ideal for quick movement on difficult terrain in all weathers. Lightweight design 375g

Lightweight, comfortable, well ventilated, durable and with a good sole unit. These are the requirements of many people who want footwear for travelling and use in hot arid environments and uses in Britain such as fast crag approach on clement days. To suit the needs of such customers we have selected a variety of shoes. We have a range of waterproof shoes also.

(Please note: Trail and mountain running shoes can be found in the Fell Running section and there are paddling and kayaking shoes in the Canoeing Clothing section and beach shoes in the Watersports department.)

In our non-waterproof range:

For approach to crags, scrambles and easy rock climbs the Scarpa Mescalito and the Salewa Wildfire Edge are worth considering, as they offer good support for walking, but have a sole with rubber and moulding particularly designed from a climbers point of view, and good adustability to tighten the fit for technical terrain.

For easy approaches followed by a trip to the pub afterwards, the colourful range of the Boreal Bamba might be considered, with a durable sole and comfortable cushioning being the focus over grip and support.

In our waterproof range:

For a lightweight walking shoe, men should be looking at the Salomon X Reveal GTX or Outline GTX, or Salewa Speed Beat; for women, the Lowa Ferrox GTX. For both, the Meindl Respond is also a good option. These shoes all provide a good level of support for the foot, whilst being well ventilated.

For slightly more durable shoes, the wide-fitting Meindl Philadelphia (M+W) and Boreal Magma (M) both offer good support and tread, along with nubuck leather uppers for a tougher finish. The tough-but-soft-underfoot Keen Targhee III might also be considered for easier terrain but hard wear.

For scrambles and tough approaches, but also for longer walks, the Salewa Mountain Trainer 2 brings the adaptability we've come to expect from Salewa, a tried-and-tested Vibram sole unit, and a lighter build than before. Alternatively, there is the Scarpa Vortex, a classic for British muddy approaches and leaf-strewn tracks, albeit with less protective and grippy rubber wrapping the shoe.
