We’ve reviewed 18 of the best three-season hill and mountain-walking boots to help you decide which might work best for you. We’ve tried everything from nimble fabric lightweights through to much stiffer, traditional, all-leather boots.
Bear in mind that the best boot in the world is useless to you if it doesn’t fit your foot. As a starting point, we’ve given a rough idea of how each boot fits, but there’s no substitute for trying boots for size. On top of that, everyone has different tastes in boots. Some walkers prefer a lighter, more flexible boot, others like lots of underfoot support and a stiff sole.
There really is no ‘best boot’, just what fits your foot best and works for your personal preferences, but we have picked out some of our favourites in each category as a starting point. We’ve also linked to full reviews of most of the boots complete with more images and more detailed information.
There are heaps of walking boots on the market we haven’t included so let us know in the forum below if you have a particular boot you love and tell us why it’s so great.
