WINNER: fabianehlers

At the heart of George Fisher is our legendary Boot Room, where generations of hill walkers have come from around the UK to have footwear fitted by our expert staff.

Everyone's feet are different. We all have a unique configuration to the 26 bones and 150 ligaments that make up a foot. Wide, narrow, shallow, pronated or supinated feet - they are all part of the jigsaw. Boot manufacturers try to create footwear that works for the greatest number of people, however there's no such thing as an average fit. Or an average foot, for that matter.

At George Fisher it's our job to make sure that you get absolutely the best advice on your footwear, and in our boot department the staff are hugely experienced. They visit manufacturers' factories to see how each company constructs their products. Outdoor enthusiasts themselves, our staff constantly test different models and our buyers source footwear from many different brands, giving a range of options whatever the activity. This allows us to recommend footwear that will fit properly and will be absolutely suited to your activity ... and your feet.

View our full range of footwear for Men, Women and Children and check out our Junior Boot Exchange for those ever growing feet! Every month we welcome Andrew Stanley, our instore podiatrist, see our events page for his next visit.

To celebrate the boot room and all the wonderful boots within it we're giving you the chance to win a pair of Scarpa SL:

''The SL is the 9th generation of this classic, really tough trekking boot, now even more luxurious and comfortable, while still being fully compatible with C1 walking crampons.

The new SL is now built on the latest TM last shape, giving an improved heel fit and closer fit across the forefoot. The redesigned upper uses a soft nubuck leather cuff with a cut out at the achilles, as well as redesigned flex zone, giving greater comfort on long descents and ascents in the mountains. The revised speed lacing system gives a sure hold across the instep, and the plush leather lining inside the boot is instantly luxurious and comfortable.

The SL is built using a 2.8mm Sherpa leather (the toughest and most waterproof of any full grain leather Scarpa uses) impregnated with HS12 and build as a one piece construction for durable weather protection. The SL also uses the Vibram biometric trek sole for traction and support when carrying a large pack. The leather and 37.5 lining (and lack of membrane) make this a brilliant boot for warm weather trekking.''

This competition has now closed.
