Approach shoes

Approach shoes allow you to tread the line between the protection and durability of walking boots and the performance and traction of climbing shoes. These versatile shoes give you the confidence to tackle hikes combined with a precise, closer fit perfect for rock climbing and scrambling. These properties mean you’re always prepared, comfortable, and safe wherever your adventure takes you. Browse here at Taunton Leisure for La Sportiva approach shoes, Scarpa approach shoes and more.

Treat your feet to the best with approach shoes from Taunton Leisure.

If you’re an outdoor enthusiast who loves to throw a whole mix of activities, terrains, and conditions into your trip, it can be tough to know exactly what outdoor footwear to wear. What’s more, you’ll want to pack light and avoid taking pair upon pair of walking shoes or climbing shoes in your rucksack!

Here’s where approach shoes come in. They’re designed for the active adventurer who loves to take on a challenge but ensures comfort and safety while doing so.

An approach shoe is specifically designed to be sturdier than trainers and lighter than hiking boots. It has the added benefit of a sticky sole, much like a climbing shoe. These attributes make this versatile footwear ideal for eating up miles of rough ground, scrambles, and craggy climbs.

As a family-run company with 45 years of experience in the industry and a genuine passion for the outdoors, we know what it takes to make stylish and practical footwear that performs. That’s why you’ll find approach shoes from the industry’s best and most trusted brands, including Boreal, La Sportiva and Scarpa.
