One of the biggest questions to ask when buying adventure shoes is whether or not they should be waterproof. A waterproof liner will protect your feet from water seeping through the shoes on a rainy day or when you walk through wet grass, but it will also make them hotter and a more sweaty in the summertime. If you do want a waterproof shoe for year-round use, look for a GoreTex or other high quality material. These are more breathable and will help keep your feet cooler and comfier. We understand that buying any kind of trail shoes online can be tricky so if yours don't fit perfectly when you take them out of the box, send them straight back for a refund or exchange. It's always worth trying any pair around the house for an hour or two before deciding to keep them just so you can be absolutely sure that the fit is right.
