  • Boot Fitting Appointments…

    blog-boot-fitting-appointment
    Our boot fitting service is becoming increasingly popular especially at the weekend and as a result we would strongly recommend booking an appointment.  If you don’t know exactly when you are coming but you are travelling we would recommend giving us a call to let us know you are on your way so we can try to ensure we have a fitter available.

    An appointment is by no means essential however we have been getting very busy especially during the weekend and have had some customers waiting up to 45 minutes or going away for a coffee/lunch and booking in for 1-2 hours later.

    If you have any questions about the service we provide or would to book an appointment please give us a call on 01254 822220.

    Thanks, Jon and the team 🙂

  • Hanwag Boots now in stock…

    We are very pleased to launch a new brand to our shop – Hanwag.

    HANWAG is called after its founder Hans Wagner. At the company’s headquarters in Vierkirchen near Munich, it has been making top-quality alpine and trekking footwear since 1921. “Traditional craftsmanship, combined with sophisticated technical expertise, constant innovation and a passion for what we do are the cornerstones of our wide-ranging collection.”

    We share an ethos of the importance of a properly fitted boot and matching your foot to the correct last. At the factory a boot or shoe is given its own, specific form, this is defined by the last. A last is a model rather like an artificial foot. It’s made either from a solid piece of wood or plastic and the footwear’s fashioned around it. If the lasts used don’t correspond to your own foot shape, the footwear will never fit properly and hours and hours of painful hiking won’t make any difference.

    We are very impressed with quality of the materials and manufacture, we are really pleased with their fit so far and look forward to trying them on your feet…

Opening hours:
Tuesday - Saturday 10am - 5pm
& Sunday 12pm - 4pm
