Whether you are walking, hiking, mountaineering or even just going to the shops, having the correct footwear is crucial. This will support and protect your feet and help you retain a degree of comfort from all the strains of the pressure put upon them. If you pick the wrong choice of walking boots then it could lead to bruised and aching feet, guaranteed to ruin your day!
If you are interested in buying a pair of walking boots, it is recommended you take into account these key points: the level of support and protection, your foot size and shape of the walking shoe, the conditions you are likely to be tackling and what weight you will be carrying in your rucksack.
You should aim to match the style of walking boot that you will use to the type of walking you are planning on doing. A low-level approach style walk won’t require mountaineering style boots. They would be more of a hindrance, as they would be too rigid and inflexible to walk comfortably on low-level trails.
One the other hand, it is vital that you use a walking boot that is tough enough to cope with the type of walking that you will be doing because you definitely want to avoid sore feet and twisted ankles.
