62 High-Performance Outdoor Footwear Examples

From Sand Sport Sneakers to Second Skin Soccer Shoes

— June 26, 2015 — Fashion
Regardless of the sport you play or athletic pursuit you undertake, if you are exercising and being active outside, high-performance outdoor footwear makes an enormous difference. Not only will you need something seasonally appropriate and elements-combatting, but preventing injury is also of the utmost importance.

For runners, especially those who prefer to run outside, high-performance outdoor footwear often needs to feel lightweight and as if the runner isn't wearing shoes at all.

In sports like tennis, soccer and golf, getting the right grip is important. There is no shortage of football boots and soccer cleats out there that are designed to give competitors an edge on the field.

When it comes to hiking and more rugged activity on the trail, nature becomes a bigger component, including durable and waterproof fabric choices.
