Please book an appointment for all walking boot fittings we are only able to work with 2 groups of customers at any one time (1 per boot fitter) so appointments are limited.
We offer a free walking boot and shoe fitting service to help you find your perfect pair of footwear.
Whether your favorite pair of boots have finally worn out or you've never managed to find any boots that work for you, don't despair, we are here to make sure that you find your perfect footwear. We stock a specially selected range of boots to suit a wide variety of foot shapes and outdoor activities - from riverside strolls, to a Lake District scrambling course or trekking in the Alps. We will make an assessment of your foot shape and type and measure you correctly. As you will already be aware your boot size can vary wildly from model to model, even from the same manufacturer, so we have several tests to check if we have found the correct size for you in each model of boot.
Our service doesn't end when you leave the shop though, we pride ourselves in our boot fitting skills and to give you extra confidence we provide a boot fit guarantee. This means that if you have any problems once you've worn the boots on the hill, come back and see us and we'll help you get any issues sorted. Its free for you to come back and get work such as stretching done and if we've made a mistake and put you into the wrong size we will swap you into the right boots at our expense.
We can make custom supportive arch footbeds, molded to your feet and also have a selection of off the peg products which can make a world of difference to your walking comfort, see the Supportive arch footbeds section for more information on their uses and benefits.
If you have an existing pair of boots that have never been right bring them in and we will check you're in the right size and see if we can improve the fit.
We have lots of techniques for fine tuning the way boots fit from adjusting volume and altering footbeds to stretching boots to make them wider, So don't despair if you've been struggling to find a pair of boots to take you to the hills in comfort, pop in to see if we can help.
We provide a walking boot clinic service so if you've been having problems with your walking boots, even if they weren't bought from us, get in touch and we will see if we can help. The clinic is free but we may have to charge if you need stretching work etc.
