Footwear is an essential part of getting into the outdoors. Some say it’s the most important, and here at Paddy Pallin, we understand why. If your feet are uncomfortable as you’re walking, or if your shoes aren’t waterproof and your feet get soaked through, it doesn’t matter how amazing the rest of your equipment is - you’re not going to have a good time. This Paddy Pallin sale includes a hiking boots sale, a sandals sale, a climbing shoe sale, and a walking shoe sale all rolled into one! The best way to know you’re getting the right shoes and the best fit is to try the shoes on in person, so head into one of our stores, and our friendly and experienced staff will be able to assist you in finding the footwear that suits the adventures you have planned. If you can’t get in-store, our friendly and experienced Customer Service Team, can discuss with you your needs to help you find that perfect fit.
How do I know when a pair of shoes are the right fit?
While hiking boots generally need some wearing in, they shouldn’t be uncomfortable when you try them on. They will feel stiff to begin with, and they can feel a little weird if you’ve never worn a boot as big as this before, however, if you have any sore spots on your feet when you’re walking around the store and trying the shoes on, that’s a bad sign. If you can feel rubbing within the first five minutes, you don’t want to think about how you’ll feel after five hours. Hiking boots should generally be at least half a size to a full size bigger than your regular fit. This is for a few reasons; one, because you will be wearing thicker, woolen socks; and two, because when you’re walking around all day, your feet will swell up, and if you don’t have a bit of extra room in your hiking boots, you’ll end up with your toes rubbing against the walls of the boots. It’s really important to take your time and listen to advice when you’re trying on hiking boots - hopefully this means you find the right pair to last you for many, many adventures.
