There is nothing nicer than having a new pair of Â hiking socks.
This trip I have tried a pair of smart wool socks courtesy of Gear-zone, and I am liking them very much, they have a lot ofÂ cushioning which makes them feel soft springy and veryÂ comfortable.
It has taken me years to find a really comfortable pair of walking boots, in fact Â I have loved my Scarpa Trek GTX walking bootsÂ , so much that I am on my third pair.
The latest pair were bought in July just before we went to theÂ PyreneesÂ , this time I am not so happy with them, as although they are still very comfortable the heels have worn down after only 4 months.
I am sure Scarpa must have changed there boots in some way as Geoff’s last pair lasted even less time than mine 🙁
These boots are not cheap at around Â£120 and I certainly cannot afford to replace them every 4/6 months so the hunt for new boots begins again 🙁
If anyone has a boot they love, please let me know !!
These days I tend to love any boots I can actually walk in!
I think you need to look at reviews in the walking books to help you out with the best quality boots…
reviews are ok to a point but its more about finding a boot that suits your feet .. which can be very hard 🙁
