I just wear boots - not walking boots, just flat, riding style boots. I wear my wellies once a year, on Christmas Eve!

I bought a pair of brown riding type boots in the Duo sale for £38 - they have a really thick cleated sole so are brilliant for dog walking.

these ones

I bought a nice pair the other day for hiking, walking. They look like merrell, but were cheaper and still really comfortable.

Hogans? Very expensive though.

Saloman trail shoes - like SingingBear's Merrell ones by the sound of it.

Had these Salomon's for four years now, and they've still got years left in them. Had my previous pair for about six years of camping, three festivals, a memorably drenched week in the Lake District and miles and miles of walks across the moors.

I also have these for just hanging out with the kids. I get loads of compliments when I wear them.
Wouldn't want to walk too much in them though.

We are a Superdry family, so I may be biased! grin

Joliejolie can I ask you about your Karrimor Summit shoes, are they like trainers with flexible soles, or are they harder/more solid and possibly need wearing in, and also did you need to go up a size. Thanks!

I have walking boots (for walking).

Otherwise I wear boots with high heels.

So not much help really NF.

Don't seem to have anything in between. Is there anything? (apart from trainers, which I only wear to train in)

I've got a lovely pair of grey/purple walking trainer type things from fat face. I don't know how to link though.

I've worn them all summer as the weather has been so crap. They've been through the wash twice too.

Very comfy, probably not as hard wearing as salomon but great for walking woth the buggy and going to the park.

melmog Wed 02-Sep-09 14:03:39

Oh, just realised you wanted leather. These'll be no good for you then!

madeupsurname Wed 02-Sep-09 15:01:24

I have these, they are comfy and go with everything - black, navy, jeans, colours. They are especially nice with wide legged trousers.

Like those Duo boots, really nice

I wear a mixture of merrell trail shoes, salomon walking boots, timberlands. Really want a flat stylish boot for this year though, maybe Fly

NoahFence Wed 02-Sep-09 18:39:56

I liek street chic

cocolepew Wed 02-Sep-09 18:48:46

I have these and am going to get grey flat laced boots from River Island

pleasechange Wed 02-Sep-09 19:47:22
