»I would buy this shoe«, said one jury member after testing the Stokka Advance GTX from Alfa Sko, the winner in the footwear category. The sneaker-like low-cut shoe is super comfortable, its snug fit supports the foot and gives good ground control. The sole offers the right balance of stability and good cushioning and the waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex membrane will keep the feet dry. Additional bonus: due to the integrated tongue you can put in on and off easily. The materials are bluesign approved. The weight is 380 grams per shoe (size 43).
