These days, walking boots are crafted to give maximum comfort from the outset and the materials are lighter, but also more waterproof. But one thing hasn’t changed – getting properly fitted for your boots is still the best decision you’ll make.
Everybody’s feet are different. They may be slim, broad, shallow or high volume.
When trying boots on, the best test is to walk an “incline ramp”. This mimics walking up and downhill. You can then see if your feet slip and gauge if you need a different size.
For wide feet, you should choose a shoe modelled around a broader last (the mould around which the boot is constructed).
