INTRODUCTION I've been a keen walker for many years. I've clocked up countless miles trekking through towns, countryside, beaches, dried riverbeds, hills and even (very small!) mountains. From all of this I've learned the most important piece of equipment is appropriate footwear. I walk everywhere as I don't drive and it adds up to 5-10miles on an average week. That's a lot of steps so I need footwear to protect and support my feet as they perform such a repetitive movement. For light walking on good terrain I generally wear good, sturdy trainers, but for any demanding rambling or hiking I always make sure I'm wearing a good pair of ... Read the complete review

It is a little while since I went on a 'proper' walk in the countryside. By walking, I mean covering mile after mile on the way up Ingleborough, or a long walk in the Yorkshire Dales. In Yorkshire we have an embarrassment of choice when it comes to the decision on where to walk. Popular among serious walkers is the Three Peaks Challenge, which is a 24 mile 'walk' up Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-ghent one after the other. This is quite a challenge, but one for which you must have a good, strong pair of walking boots. Walking boots are an essential on any walkers' kit list when it comes to spending a day out exposed to the elements. Not only do they keep ... Read the complete review

Through the years I have done a vast amount of walking and hiking with my dogs through the hills and fields around the UK, and the one thing that that has taught me it that it is essential that you have a decent set of walking boots and currently I'm on my fifth set. I've seen so many people wearing simple training shoes trying to cross rocks and muddy fields and I think one day they'll learn why you need decent walking boots. Why is it so important to have the correct footwear? Well it is all to do with protecting your feet and ankles. You wouldn't wear a pair of slippers to go rock climbing. Conversely, thick wellington boots might seem a bit excessive ... Read the complete review

The first proper pair of walking boots I owned were bought for me the Christmas before last. My parents in law were stuck for a present, and as it was an icy winter and I did not own a pair of walking boots I was taken to the large outdoor-wear shop near where I live to select a pair I liked. Given that the boots were a gift I did not wish to abuse the generosity of my relatives, and so I selected a low- to mid-range pair. Given that the outdoors shop in question stock goods at competitive prices, the boots should actually have cost £80, but they were on sale for just under £50. The boots in question are a Hi-Tec pair, and while I am not altogether au fait ... Read the complete review

You've been to the outdoor shops, tried on the boots, got all the advice,collected the manufacturers bumpf, read the boot reviews on dooyoo, and come home with a nice shiny pair of new boots. Full of enthusiasm on the first sunny day of spring you set out for a tramp around the fells, nothing too strenuous. But shock, horror, an hour into the walk and you feel the first tell-tale twinges of an on-coming blister. Before you go marching into your local store and accosting the poor unfortunate sales assistant that soled you the boots, consider the fact that there may be another simpler culprit - your socks. Why is it that when it comes to things like ... Read the complete review
