Topic - Help with choosing good boots for Gold D of E Raynauds Walker

Rams - on 05 Apr 2013
Am a new forumite and already need some of your expert help.

My 17 year old daughter is about to embark on her Gold Duke of Edinburgh expedition to Snowdonia. However I am concerned that over the past couple of years her Raynaud's syndrome has worsened and the last time she was out in her walking boots her Raynauds got pretty bad (she wasn't climbing but simply walking on a geography fieldtrip).

We need to get her new walking boots in any case as the ankle support is not great and, she needs a boot that is comfortable(obviously mother),but not too snug as the foot needs a good supply of air around it so as not to restrict blood flow to the capillaries.

Any expereince of buying good boots for Raynaud's sufferers out there? Best makes, best fitting companies, opinions on heated boots,socks etc would be more than welcome.
