At Foothills we now have over 150 models of hiking boots and shoes in stock. We have all the major brands - Scarpa, Meindl, Zamberlan, Altberg, Hanwag, Oboz and few you won't have heard of. Hiking boots are the most important things that you wear on the hill. Their fit and your comfort are paramount. We recommend that wherever possible you do not buy hiking boots from the website but visit the shop to take full advantage of our specialist boot fitting service.
As fitting is so important no sizes are listed on the site for more information about this or if you live far away please give us a call on: 0114 2586228 (Mon -Fri 10.00 - 18.00 or Sat 10.00 - 17.00). If your only solution is to buy on line we will offer as much fitting advice as possible over the phone.
In store - When we reopen after lockdown boot fitting will again be by appointment please give us a call on 01142586228 or email email@example.com to book in.
