Leather walking boots and leather shoes have a stronger, sturdier feel to them and with the fully covered outer they give you greater protection from the elements you may face on the mountainside. They are made from tougher stuff which means they cope better with scratches and bumps which are all too common as you head further off the beaten track. The more you head off the track the more dirt you come into contact with. Leather walking boots and leather walking shoes are easy to maintain and clean and if properly looked after with reputable care products can last a very long time. Leather boots and leather shoes tend to be waterproof and if not have a great degree of water repellency which means they are great for year round use in all weather conditions and when exploring off the track by the riverside where the footing can be damp however because of this it can mean that the boot is less breathable and your feet can get sweaty if you are not wearing the right socks and the summer sun is beating down on you. As leather boots and shoes are more rigid they can take a lot longer to “wear in” than material boots. With all the extra tough natural material Leather Walking boots and shoes can be heavier and more bulky and often op the more expensive end of the Walking Boot range.

Material Walking Boots and shoes tend to form the cheaper end of the walking boot range but that is not to say they are not as good. boots and shoes made from softer materials can be more flexible than a pair of leathers and will support your natural foot movement more easily. As there is less bulk to them they are often lightweight and give your foot more room to breathe when under pressure. Material Walking Boots are often padded out with cushioning which supports your foot and means they are easier to “wear in” meaning you can get out in comfort in quicker time however if you are looking to take the boots off the track they aren’t quite as abrasive as leather shoes and will possibly scuff or rip a little easier. Material boots, shoes and sandals don’t tend to give vast amounts of protection from the elements especially the ones with mesh sides or air vents. These walking boots, shoes and sandals can be hard to clean as the dirt and mud can stick to the material and often it takes a bit of effort to get it off – in turn rubbing down the material causing wear. This footwear will need reproofing regularly and take a fair amount of care and maintenance to keep in good working order.
