Vasque Constant Velocity £71
A well-cushioned shoe that will tackle whatever you throw at it. The sole has aggressive, clover-shaped lugs that perform as well on slick rocks as they do on scree. A rock plate in the forefoot shields your foot when you’re scampering over rough ground, while the soft heel protects you when you’re bombing downhill. The air-mesh upper is reinforced with hearty stitched-on overlays that will hold tightly for the life of the shoe.
