Training is an important part of any kind of mountaineering activity, and that consists of various options, such as running, and specifically trail running. Although I do not particularly like to run on mountain trails -I much more prefer to enjoy the views and the surrounding environment- I understand the importance of this type of exercise. For this type of activity I use the Salomon Speedcross 3 purchased from Ali Express. Some say these shoes are genuine but with some minor defects, instead others claim are rip-off Salomon models. Either case, this will be a review for the specific shoes.
Combining waterproof protection and generous support, The North Face Verbera Lightpacker GTX boots are ideal for medium-load backpacking.
These boots feature suede leather and Panatex ballistic textile uppers, complemented by advanced Gore-Tex® membranes for waterproof protection and breathable performance, so feet remain cool and dry whether the rain is pouring or the sun is out.
Weight-efficient Smartlite® mudguards and premium EVA Northotic foot beds also come as standard, along with Cradle technology for extra support and stability in the heel regions and Vibram® outsoles for grip on slick ground.
