Whether you’re hiking local trails or trekking the Himalayas this spring/summer, our new season walking boots offer all of the comfort and support you need for your next adventure. Here are our favourite 2016 arrivals from world-leading brands Scarpa, Salomon, Mammut and The North Face.
Taking care of your walking boots ensures that they last longer and perform better in the outdoors. Regularly cleaning, drying and reproofing hiking boots enhances comfort by keeping feet fresh and dry (full grain leather boots also need to be conditioned when the uppers start to dry and crack). These are the different treatments and aftercare products required for maintaining your footwear.
The correct footwear should make every trip into the great outdoors the adventure of a lifetime, not a painful slog through the wilds. When properly fitted, walking boots should move moisture away from the skin to reduce the risk of blisters while allowing heat to escape and cool air to enter keeping you feeling comfortable. They also protect and support the feet and ankles so you can confidently move over a range of rugged landscapes. Here’s our 4-step guide to how you can find and fit the perfect pair.
