Hush Puppies have launched their first ever adventure shoe for outdoor types, successfully creating a hiking boot that looks every bit as good as it feels whether you are hiking forest trails or walking urban streets.

Remember when Hush Puppies were the kind of footwear grandparents wore ? Not anymore! Hush Puppies have come bounding into our lives with the kind of gusto Travel Play Live adores. With uber cool designs for intrepid types, the all new Adventure Shoe blends comfort with cool, sensible with sassy, country with city smart attitude to give outdoor women a walking shoe that goes well beyond the trails.


The Adventure Shoe comes in two different styles - Ascend and Alpine - in a range of colours

We’ve even teamed our black pair of Ascends with some skinny black jodhpurs, added a slinky leather jacket over a favourite tee and taken them out to a swanky dinner – that’s one super versatile hiking boot we can relate to. We took The Adventure Shoe hiking on rock-strewn trails, dodging gnarly tree roots, bouncing over creeks and ever-upwards in the Glasshouse Mountains.

Closer to home, they found their stride on winding trails that cut a swathe through national parks, they didn’t mind a bit of soft sand on the endless beaches of Fraser Island and really hit their peak going offroad when, what looked like a quick shortcut turned into an off-trail bush-bashing episode the likes of which Bear Grylls would be proud of.

Expertly designed to be the most lightweight hiking boots ever, The Adventure Shoe by Hush Puppies will surely become your new BFF (apologies to our long-suffering loyal girlfriends, but you’ll understand being nudged aside for a pair of hero shoes, won’t you??). Light enough to pack into any backpack or carry-on luggage, and stylish enough to wear as an everyday boot beyond the great outdoors, these are a serious contender in the hiking and outdoor adventure category and are (almost!) the perfect companion for your next hike or camping trip.
