What to put on your feet when the weather turns really shitty and the elements become hostile? Good shoes or boots of course. Here you can find our recommendations for crappy weather.

Everything starts with good boots

In many parts of the world, the weather is nowadays quite unpredictably wet. There are different footwear options available for wet and muddy weather, depending on what properties you want to emphasize. Rubber boots are completely waterproof, but they don’t breathe and they are not ideal for longer distances. Leather boots can be greased to become fairly water repellent but it takes some time and effort. The best combination of comfort, water-repellency, and ease of maintenance comes with high-quality Gore-Tex shoes and boots.

We got both tall and mid-length Gore-Tex boots for you. Your choice depends on how deep in the muck you wanna wallow. The ankle-length ones are ideal for a bit shallower mud running and city use in shitty weather. The tall boots are true off-road models.

Merino wool socks and your feet will thank you

Forget those cotton tennis socks and choose proper ones containing Merino wool and some synthetic fibers that make the socks last longer. These will not turn into slimy and cold blobs. Carry along spare socks and change them when needed to feel nice and warm and to keep your footwear from sucking in all that moisture.

Even good boots need some love

High-quality shoes and boots can take crappy care better than poor-quality ones. However, proper shoe care will make even good footwear last a lot longer. Therefore we recommend putting some effort even in Gore-Tex shoecare. Read more in this shoe and boot care article.
