Why are hiking shoes so cheap?

The best hiking shoes are often affordable, but you can’t go wrong with a pair of cheap hiking shoes.

Here are a few reasons why: •They’re waterproof •They don’t come with a case or strap, so you can take them anywhere without having to worry about them breaking •They fit well into shoes that are narrower than the widest part of your feet and are easy to get on and off •They won’t break if you slip and fall •They are easy and comfortable to wear and maintain •They can be made in several sizes.

They can be bought on Amazon for €12 to €30 or from the likes of the US company Brooks or the UK-based Sainsbury’s for £6.50 to £16.50.
