Best Women's Walking boots for 2019 | Recommended Kit

Scotland's leading outdoor clothing and adventure specialists since 1962.

Walking boots are one of the most important items of your outdoor kit. A good quality, well fitted walking boot can make the difference between an enjoyable day in the hills and a less pleasant experience.

Here at Tiso, we often get asked "What are the best walking boots you stock?" This is a hard question for any sales assistant, because the best walking boot for YOU will be very different to the best walking boot for the customer next to you. Choosing a new walking boot is a very individual task, you need to pick a boot that fits your specific foot shape.

Other factors to consider when choosing a new boot are, the type of walking you would like to do? And the amount of use you would like to get out of the boot? Are you planning on bagging Munro’s every weekend, daily dog walking or the occasional family hike?

To make this easier to digest, we have split our Top Pick boots into three categories, detailed below -

Lightweight Walking

Ideal for day walks, dog walking and hotter climates. These boots are light, waterproof and comfortable.

Midweight Walking and Backpacking

These type of boots are designed to be more durable and supportive (and are therefore heavier) than lightweight boots, and are intended for trips over moderate terrain. They are suitable for going cross country and venturing onto steeper and more rugged landscapes.

Top-End Boots

Top-end boots are designed for extended trips, big mountain days and long-term use. They are therefore generally heavier, more rigid, more supportive and durable than the previous types of footwear.
