It’s a conundrum faced by ever more skiers these days. There’s more and more activities to enjoy in resort off the ski slopes – tubing, tobogganing, snowshoeing, mountain coasters and many more – but you need the right footwear to enjoy them.
Many traditional apres ski boots don’t really work that well once you get active, they’re either too flimsy or too clumsy, sometimes both – you need some serious all terrain footwear which you can also use just walking around the resort in the snow when you’re not in your ski boots.
The next consideration is weight, if you’re taking the boots to the resort along with all your ski kit, probably already pushing the limits of your baggage allowance.
Well we think we’ve found the answer to the conundrum with ECCO’s EXOHIKE boot. Designed to perform in all weather and all conditions, they’re also lightweight and feature GORE-TEX waterproof protection.
The ECCO EXOHIKE also boasts a responsive Michelin rubber outsole, a cushioned midsole for comfort and an innovative heel cup for outstanding traction and support – perfect on snow and ice.
The other great thing is that unlike snow boots these are year-round outdoor boot so great to use out hiking back home through the rain and mud spring, summer and autumn, so there’s added value there.
