Perhaps the most important piece of kit for anyone going walking, having the right footwear for your chosen activity is crucial to comfort and enjoyment. If you’re staying relatively low-level, for example in your local park, a sturdy walking shoe or trainer will do. If you’re heading off the beaten track, onto more uneven, rocky or hilly terrain, some mid-rise or high -rise walking boots will offer more ankle support, traction and avoid unwanted injuries. Plus, if the weather isn’t great, they’ll keep feet drier than a shoe. You can have the whole family fitted for the right footwear by an expert in-store, but when you can’t get to us, check out our handy expert guide to fitting your own footwear.
