Walking Shoes

Feet are adaptable and can withstand a lot of pressure before they rebel. If you walk a lot, it’s important to choose footwear that won’t damage your feet. They should have lace-up fastenings to keep the feet firmly in place (the “seat belt” effect), which will help to prevent blisters and keep the toes from slipping forwards. This is especially important when you are walking downhill.

Leather uppers mould well to the shape of your foot, are hard wearing and allow your feet to “breathe” without becoming too sweaty. The lining of the shoe should be smooth, with no round and obtrusive stitching inside. The sole should be tough and long lasting to offer both protection and grip.
