Kit Focus – AKU Alterra Lite GTX Waterproof Hiking Shoes and CEP Compression Hiking Socks

AKU Alterra Lite GTX Waterproof Hiking Shoes
The AKU Alterra Lite GTX Waterproof Hiking Shoes are designed for hill walking and leisure wear; rated for anything up to a 'moderately difficult hike'. For me, they are the perfect winter walking shoes; with waterproof protection, superb breathability, and the versatility that they are not out of place on a wide variety of terrain.

The AKU Alterra Lite GTX is made primarily of leather, with a Gore-Tex lining to ensure waterproofing and breathability. Inside there is a comfortable Ortholite insole to provide support for your foot, while the moulded EVA footbed offers cushioning and further support.

The underside sole is a robust rubber tread that will find traction on a wide variety of terrain. The sole also features enhanced protection from stony paths and sharp scree.

The Alterra Lite GTX fit very well, with the foot feeling well supported in the insole. The adjustable lacing system allows you to tailor the volume within the shoe to keep your feet comfortable in a variety of temperatures or with varying sock thicknesses. I have quite narrow feet, but found there was still plenty of scope to cinch up the laces and create a comfortable fit.

Lightweight, durable and versatile, the Alterra Lite GTX Waterproof Hiking Shoes offer the ideal all-terrain option for exploring towns, footpaths, and beaches this winter.

Kit Focus – CEP Sports Hiking Light Merino Mid-Cut Socks

Hiking shoes have come a long way since those loose fitting leather boots of the 1990s, and so too have hiking socks. The CEP Sports Hiking Light Merino Mid-Cut Socks bear little resemblance to the thick woollen hiking socks of yester-year, and offer far greater comfort and foot control.

The Hiking Light Merino range from CEP are made from a blend of high quality materials; combining merino with fast wicking man-made fabrics to offer a comfortable and lightly insulating feel. Merino is the perfect ingredient for hiking socks—the natural material absorbs an incredible amount of moisture and keeps your feet fresh and noticeably drier; together with the skin-tight fit, this reduces foot friction and helps prevent blisters.

The innovative compression technology found in the CEP Hiking Socks range has proven to help activate your muscles and joints, as well as enhancing your body awareness (proprioception) of your ankles—which lends itself to more accurate footwork on rough terrain.

The CEP Hiking socks also feature anatomically positioned padding zones to add comfort and reliable cushioning on long distance walks, and better foot support.

Dry, cushioned, and comfortable; these modern hiking socks from CEP Sports are the perfect complement to the AKU hiking shoes featured above.

  1. Wearing moisture-wicking socks has several advantages. Wearing moisture wicking socks keeps your feet dry all day, which is one of the finest advantages. Work Gearz, on the other hand, is a great place to go if you want to get the finest moisture-wicking socks.

  2. If you're hobby is doing hiking and while hiking, you're not wearing glasses then you're putting your eyes in a serious risk, you must always protect them before anything bad happens by purchasing hiking sunglasses.
