Off the wall!
Know your purpose
“Buy footwear for the trips you do most often, not intend to do ‘one day’. A good retailer will help you narrow down your choice.”
Put a sock in it
“Wear the same socks you hike in when trying on new footwear – it’ll help ensure you get the right fit.”
Size is everything
“Unless you want broken nails and bruised toes, you need to get this right. You want a good finger’s-width of space between your biggest toe and the end of the boot.”
Go to a store
“Always try and get fitted in-store – getting your foot in front of an expert fitter will help 100 per cent.”
