How to Choose Your Walking Boots

Probably the best way to choose the general type of walking boot you need is to do so based on the type of activity you’ll be doing.

Buying a pair of walking boots is all well and good, but they’ll be next to useless (and potentially damaging to your body) if they don’t fit you properly. So, here are some top tips on how to make sure your new walking boots fit properly.

Check the time of day

Your feet swell slightly as the day goes on, so bear this in mind if you’re trying new boots on. You might even need to take into account the time of year, as your feet will swell more in summer than in winter.

Wear suitable socks

It’s very important that you wear your normal walking socks when trying on a pair of new boots. If you don’t, then you won’t get a true feel of how well they fit and feel when you’re outdoors.

Leave enough room at the end of the boot

Just like with new shoes, leave enough room at the end of the boot. This is particularly important because when walking up or downhill, your feet will need room to move depending on the angle of your feet.

A finger’s width is a decent amount of room to leave. If you’re unsure, take out the insole and check it against your feet.
