You need multipurpose shoes if you like to do faster and more athletic activities in the mountains. Light­­weight gear is what matters most in nordic walking and speed­hiking. Hikers in these disciplines frequently use poles to stabilise their bodies and strengthen their core muscles. The regular exercise also develops and promotes an indi­vidual’s general physical condition and coordination. The two athletic activities differ in terms of the speed at which they are performed, elevation changes and total distance.

Nordic walking Lightly covering terrain.

“Nordic walking is an optimal intro­ductory sport for outdoor enthu­siasts. It puts your whole body to the test. It gives your muscles a great workout and stim­ulates your meta­bolism. It is certainly much more than a stroll with poles. Our sports company also has models for Nordic walkers in our collection. These shoes are perfect for this type of exercise.”

Other tech­no­logies for Nordic walking:

PADDED EDGING The padded edging is softer and more flexible because of women’s lower calf muscles.
