In the market for a new pair of walking boots? This article is aimed primarily at beginners taking their first steps into hillwalking, but even old hands might pick up the odd tip. If you've endured years of ill-fitting boots then it could be time to think again about footwear
In reply to UKC Articles: A great article, but it would be good to see a follow up on proper boot and foot care, too often I see and hear people complaining about perfectly good boots leaking, being bad or uncomfortable boots, purely cause *they* haven't looked after them properly, worn the correct socks or looked after their feet.
These are often people who get out a lot on single trips and think they're doing ok, yet when they come to extended trips in variable conditions, they really start to suffer.
