/ Can someone recommend me a pair of walking boots please?
I am looking for a pair of walking boots that are going to last but don't really know what brands are best or where to start. Also whats better. Leather or synthetic?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks for the replies. Will have to get to a shop sometime and have a look around. Being a student I haven't a great deal of money so can't really be too picky.
Take a look at Scarpa, la sportiva, Meindl, brasher, saloman. There's very good leather boots, and there's very good synthetic for all uses. So find something that will be comfortable. Sounds like 3/4 season boot is what you are after, provided you are just walking, and only want one boot. If doing lots of peat bog trotting ala kinder / bleak low / dart moor etc, the leather would be my preference.

My preference would be to walk somewhere else ;-)

Ah Kinder is great, but I guess it's a bit like arbiter....
