It’s that time of year when we dig out the walking boots and head off to the many woodland, mountain and beach walks we as a family all love!
One problem though, when my daughter went to put on her walking shoes, she’d outgrown them.
Not realising they were only a size 3, and she now has a size 5 foot, it was a quick dash down to the shops to see what she liked, what fitted and most importantly to me, what would keep her feet warm and dry during our walks.
As quick as a flash as soon as she tried on these Gelert Horizon Mid Waterproof Ladies Walking Boots in navy and purple she wanted them, which is unusual for my normally fussy 9 year old.
These boots are made from a robust comfortable fabric that will keep her feet dry and warm and support her ankles. They have breathable mesh panels, so hopefully her feet won’t sweat, a full lace up front with extra hooks at the ankle level for extra cover.
The Gelert Horizon walking boots feature a multi directional moulded rubber sole which should prevent my daughter from slipping over and provide more support, especially when walking over rough stones and through woodland. The added cushioned insole and padded ankle cuff is a great addition to my daughter’s last pair of walking shoes.
The first time she wore them was to test them out and watch her brother play football on a muddy and wet pitch, thankfully they stood up to their task and my daughter’s feet were as snug, dry and warm as when we left the house – plus she was happy as it was easier to have a kick around after the game in her boots instead of her usual wellington boots.
So if you like to head out during the Autumn and Winter months for a breath of fresh air and enjoy the local countryside or beaches, the Gelert Horizon walking boots could be just the pair for you.
As I’ve mentioned in previous blogs, my daughter has a long foot for a 9 year old, so she had to have a ladies size 5, but they do have a children’s version, which is exactly the same, apart from the colours. The Gelert Horizon Mid Waterproof Walking Boots Juniors, come in shades of charcoal with pink or blue stripe detailing on the side.
The other great thing about these boots is they scrub up clean to, a quick wipe down and they looked as good as new. 🙂
