    Lightweight hiking shoes for wide feet?

    Iím looking for a pair of lightweight hiking shoes (trail shoes?) which donít take up too much room in the bag. I own both a pair of Meindl hiking boots and hiking shoes, but both pairs are big and heavy and are not quite what I have in mind. I donít plan to wear them on hiking trips, I just want a pair thatís robust enough for short hikes on a sightseeing holiday.

    Any recommendations that might fit wide feet?

    So, are you looking for hiking sneakers? That sort of thing? I know LLBean sells a variety of different styles.

    Yes, hiking sneakers sounds about right. We don’t have LLBean in Germany though.

    Can you do a search for Trail Runners? That's what we've always called them!

    Thanks, that gave me some results! Seems like they’ve kept the English term selling these.

    If Lowa brand are available near you, they'd be worth a try.
    I have slightly narrow feet and had to get their narrow fit shoe as the regular fit was significantly wider than average .

    Not sure if they carry them in Germany, but I have some lightweight hiking shoes from a brand called Forsake- they do make some boots, but also shoes that look kind of stylish enough to wear in urban settings too. Very useful for minimalist packing!

    These are my personal favorites, along with New Balance Minimus Trail 10. My German hiking partner swears by Lowa boots though!

    Astral makes shoes with wide toe boxes. I have a pair of Astral Mesh shoes that are awesome. They are robust enough for short hikes. They are porting shoes - carrying a boat from one body of water to another. They are quick drying and super comfortable.

    I just got a pair of Altra Timp trail runners and they have great support and a wide toe-box.

    New Balance is the first brand that comes to mind for wide sizes and they make walking shoes as well as running shoes and available in the EU. Trail runners are used extensively by hikers for long trails and ultralight loads.

    Another phrase you might try is "approach shoes". Good luck!
