Approach Shoes

The term "Approach Shoe" is very loosely bandied around, but ideally it should mean a lightweight shoe suitable for summer approaches to high crags and possibly for carrying up your climb to wear on the descent.

Some of the shoes listed here fit this description more than others and this is generally indicated in the text, but in many ways, Fell Running Shoes make better approach shoes than "Approach Shoes" do as they are lighter and have much more studded soles which give a far better grip on the steep wet grass of the British mountains, whilst the flatter soles of the approach shoes can be lethal in such conditions and are best used for such adventurous activities as going to the pub, which is indeed what they are mostly worn for.

However, these particular approach shoes will be ideal for hot rock trips to Spain, France, the USA etc where you are dealing with dry conditions and and need shoes that are a) reasonable thorn proof and b) can be worn around town and to the bar afterwards, as well as on the plane home.
