Win a pair of hiking boots, worth £130

When you’re heading into the outdoors on an adventure, one of the most crucial bits of kit is what you’re wearing on your feet.

A good pair of hiking boots will give you the grip needed to scramble up mountains, protect you from twisted ankles and falling rocks on the trail, and keep your feet dry when the rain falls. And, most importantly of all, they’ll keep you comfortable during long days exploring the wilderness.

That’s a healthy list of demands for a pair of shoes, but we’ll add just one more to the mix, too: we like ours to look good, which is why these ECCO MX hiking boots have caught our eye.

These stylish boots, inspired by the trainers you’ll see up and down your local high street, boast a number of technical features that make them ready for whatever the great outdoors can throw at you, and we reckon they may be our new favourites to take on an adventure.

So, to celebrate the new release, ECCO has given us two pairs, in men’s and women’s sizes, to give away to two lucky WFA readers. To be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do is answer one simple question.

But first, let’s take a look at what you can win.

ECCO MX Hiking Boots

ECCO hiking shoes

A lightweight, mid-cut hiking boot, the ECCO MX are ideal for light hikes, long walks, and urban adventures, with a high-top style that wouldn’t look out of place down the pub or in a smart-casual office.

Despite looking like a comfy pair of trainers, the textile outer is ready for the rigours of a life outdoors, and is backed with GORE-TEX to provide full waterproofing. The chunky sole is also inspired by tyre tread on motocross bikes, with deep-set lugs that’ll provide grip and traction on muddy paths and in boggy fields.

The TPU insert within the sole is designed to follow the natural shape of your foot for enhanced comfort and stability on your hikes.

The MX boots come in both men’s and women’s sizing, and you can find more about the boots here.
