We are finding that more and more people are looking for lightweight comfort combined with support, protection and waterproofing for their feet. We already do extremely well with Meindls Maine Mid (mens and womens) and the Keen Targhee II Mid (mens and womens), but we felt that as the fit that Zamberlan boots gives suits so many of our customers we really should offer something for you to try. Enter the Zamberlan Zenith Mid GT; this lightweight, mid ankle, fabric and leather boot is ideal for easy terrain given its gentle flex. It has a mixed upper of split leather and Cordura nylon, a hard wearing Vibram sole, Gore-tex lining for waterproofness and a protective rubber toe rand. The removable Comfort Fit footbed is well cushioned and has a moisture-wicking topsheet for extra comfort. Try some out for coastal path, winter country park, valley and rolling hill walking.

For something a little more supportive but still on the light end of hill and mountain walking the big news from Scarpa is a reworking of the much loved classic the Scarpa Ranger. The latest version; the Scarpa Ranger 2 Activ and Ranger 2 GTX Activ Lady provide a much improved heal counter with Memory Foam, ankle cuff and look. Slip your foot into one and you'll notice the improvements immediately. Based as we are at the foot of the South Wales Valleys and on the doorstep of the Brecon Beacons this boot is sure to be a winner for everyone around.

If you have a particularly wide foot that none of these boots or our other stock suit then you need to try the fantastically wide Meindl Meran GTX. This excellent boot sits in firmly in the all round  mountain walking  category so they should suit our local broad South Wales foot and Welsh upland terrain all in one.

We still have a few of last seasons Scarpa Ranger (only £99 down from £124.99) and Lady Ranger GTX (only £109.99 down from £139.99)on special offer as well as hiking socks from Thor-Lo, so get em while there are some left.
