Hi, looking for any recommendations for decent, comfy walking boots.

I bought these last year, still going strong. Just done a 7km walk in them through a lot of mud!

Saloman GTX boots. Like wearing slippers straight out of the box.

I like the Keen brand and have always found them very long lasting

Love my AKUs!

Mine are Scarpa but it depends how much you want to pay!

Timberland. They're pale blue and pretty and feel like I'm walking on air.

I once had a pale blue pair of Timberlands, they were so sweet 💗

I ordered these: amazon.co.uk/dp/B076ZVG7L4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_E7sSFbG3T1WAY?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1]]
I can throughly recommend them! I am sat here with a small break in my ankle after taking a hard fall last week when walking in these.
I don't doubt for a minute that if I hadn't had them the break would have been a lot worse. They offered enough support for me to walk the 2 miles back, albeit slowly.
The reviews are great, hence me trying them. I've had loads of different boots from £50 fabric ones up to £200 leather ones. I've done miles in these, mostly mountain, and tge took no breaking in or anything, just dubbin to waterproof. Worth a look maybe.

I had a pair of braisher (sp) for 30 years and they were comfortable from he day I put them on

Hanwag are incredibly comfortable and last years

Check out decathlon. They have loads at different prices an for different terrain etc.

It’s best to try them on if possible, to avoid making a costly mistake.
I have a pair of Meindl boots, they were expensive but I can walk all day in them without any problems and they’ll probably last 10-15 years if I look after them, so price per wear is really low.

Ooo thanks everyone, loads for me to take a look at

Another vote for scarpa here. Had some for my 30th and they lasted 12 years and I wore them often. Just bought another pair.

I've had these for eight years - Yorkshire made!

I live in a pair of Hoggs of Fife leather boots - I work on farms in them, do the horses in them but with a bit of a wash they still scrub up well. They have moulded to my feet beautifully and are so comfy. Not the lightest of boots but really good quality at a decent price ( I get them trade discounted though!) I’ll go get the link....

Thanks again everyone, I ordered 10 different pairs and have settled on a pair of Keens.
It was quite a difficult decision!!
