4 SALOMON XA PRO 3D GTX £120
Okay, this is not a lightweight, responsive shoe but if you are out for long periods on tough ground this is the shoe you want. The speed lacing adjusts to a good fit and there is enough cushioning and protection for hard and rugged ground. The support and stability is good in terms of both the midsole and the upper construction. The grip works well on most surfaces although you may want a bit deeper tread if you are spending you’re your time on sloppy ground. The weather-proofing and gusseted tongue keep the elements out too.
