Cat Footwear and Gore-Tex team up for the ultimate stylish yet rugged shoe

Cat Footwear is once again teaming up with Gore-Tex to bring some of the most stylish yet rugged shoes we've ever seen - the Parched Gore-Tex Shoe.  It basically combines the durability of a regular walking boot with the design and chic of a hi-top.

The Gore-Tex collaboration was first introduced with the Autumn/Winter 2015 line, and now it gets an upgrade with the launch of Gore-Tex Surround, which will continue to make the product completely waterproof and completely breathable, offering a range that's perfect for rambles in hot and cold weather.

The Parched Gore-Tex Shoe is priced from £140 at www.catfootwear.co.uk.

Pound the tarmac like a pro with the dhb Men's Victory Running Shoe

If you're in the market for a new pair of running shoes, and you want a break the usual brands that dominate the scene, why not try out this impressive new offering from the clever minds at dhb?

The main body of the Victory Running Shoe is a 'tri-laminted mesh', which dhb says brings both structure and support as well as enhancing the fit and feel. No one likes the distraction of hot feet either, so the fabrics choices around the heel and toes have been chosen specifically to optimise breathability.

The gusset system not only helps with getting it on, it 'hugs' your foot making for a incredibly comfortable fit. It also reduces and slips, making every stride feel secure and confident.

The dhb Victory Running Shoe is available now in blue (£60) and black (£52).
