The Trespass Gillon are waterproof walking shoes. We put them to the test on the muddy hills. They get the Thumbs Up 🙂
With the wet and muddy weather of Autumn, and our lad’s feet growing out of things so fast, we started to look to get him a new pair of walking shoes.
Fortunately, Trespass offered to send us one of their Kid’s Walking Shoes to test out. Thanks, Trespass 🙂
Having looked at the different options on the Trespass website, there were quite a few choices of kids walking boots or shoes.
We opted for walking shoes over walking boots, as these give the most use.
Trespass Gillon Review
They arrived quickly. The Carbon and Kiwi colour look great and got a bigs thumbs up from our lad.
The first thing I checked out was the tread; an important part of any outdoor footwear.
Close up these shoes look great.
Inside they have plenty of padding and our lad found them very comfortable.
Enough of the indoor testing, it was time to get outside 🙂
The first test was on a mix of paths and countryside for a handful of miles while taking the dog out for a walk. Despite being new, our lad found them comfortable. There was no rubbing that you might sometimes get on new shoes.
The next test was to get them outdoors for real, with a hike on a wet day up a very steep muddy hill.
We were all slipping a bit on this hill, but these shoes held their grip well.
It was a good test with mud, puddles, forest, wet grassy slopes, gravel descent, and rocks.
No sore feet. No wet feet.
- tres-tex membrane: waterproof, breathable, windproof
