Basically, if you’re looking for a versatile, lightweight, tough pair of shoes, that can go anywhere you do, then these are an excellent option.
Overall these are great shoes if you like gentle weekend walks in the country, a bit of gardening and daily dog walks but for anything more strenuous we'd suggest looking towards the more technical end of the Berghaus range.
- The Expeditor Active AQ Tech is a cross between a sturdy hiker and an agile trainer. It is built with the user’s comfort and movability on rough trails in mind.
- Two Berghaus-exclusive technologies are present in this shoe: AQ and Opti-Stud. AQ gives wearers sufficient water protection, while Opti-Stud provides adequate surface traction.
A low-cut, fairly true-to-size day hiking shoe for men and women is the Berghaus Expeditor Active AQ Tech. It comes in a range of half and full sizes. It is offered in standard width. Users are given the ability to customize its fit and get a secure lockdown via the footgear’s ghillie lacing.
The Expeditor Active AQ Tech is capable of sticking to most outdoor surfaces thanks to its Opti-Stud outsole. Berghaus shoemakers engineered it with multi-faceted lugs and grippy tread patterns to give owners enhanced traction where they need it most. They also made its front end cover a marginal portion of the forefoot for additional bump protection.
A single-piece midsole is what gives owners the right amount of cushioning and stability in the Expeditor Active AQ Tech. It is built with a stout heel to lessen shock on ground impact. It comes with a supportive footbed courtesy of Ortholite for extra underfoot comfort.
The stitched-on below-the-ankle upper of this hiking footgear is made of WR100 Pittards suede leather. To prevent wet elements from seeping into the shoe’s interior, Berghaus designers imbued it with a proprietary waterproof liner, called AQ. This technology also gives wearers adequate breathability for a comfier ride on the trail.
Getting in and out of the shoe is made more convenient with the presence of a pull tab on its heel. Its closure system is comprised of combination eyelets and a robust synthetic lace.
