Haglöfs Ultra Lightweight L.I.M.s

There’s so many hiking brands to consider that shopping can get tedious. Like, do I want my hiking shoes to be Gore-Tex as well as my coat? Which of the many compression-resistant abbreviations do I want in the heel of the shoe? How thick is the tread? And what exactly is a dope-dyed yarn socklining?

But you know what? That’s kind of why it’s so fun. It’s like collecting Pokemon cards again or properly nerding out on something. There’s a community and we all learn together. 

In answer to the first question: Gore-Tex isn’t the be-all-end-all. The second: you want GEL™ heel cushioning (as pioneered by ASICS). If you’re hiking you want a semi-thick tread that potentially leans into your pronation, and lastly: no one knows what a dope-dyed yarn socklining is. No one, except Haglöfs, who coincidentally have a shoe that ticks all the above boxes. 

Haglöfs L.I.M. range is ultra-light with minimal extra features – just the ones that are necessary. It’s like the Occam’s Razor of shoes. Peak functionalism. The top of the mountain.
