If you regularly go bird watching out in the field then a good pair of shoes is essential. Walking for miles in shoes that aren’t suitable will result in aching feet and can lead to blisters, callouses and other foot problems.

Bird Watching Footwear

Investing in a pair of walking or hiking boots is worth doing if you watch birds in hilly or rocky terrains. They provide ankle support and tread suitable for walking in many types of areas from woods to mountains. A lightweight pair of hiking boots will minimize fatigue and boots made from Gore-tex are most suitable for wet conditions.

For urban bird watching or if you require something more flexible than a boot, a trail shoe is a great alternative. Again, waterproof trail shoes are available and breathable, non-lined trail shoes are great for wear the summer during dry weather.

For wet, muddy or snowy conditions, whether you are at your local park, in fields in the countryside or simply at home in your garden a pair of welly boots will keep your feet dry.

We have a range of walking boots, trail shoes and wellington boots from leading brands including Salomon, Berghaus, The North Face, Mammut, Asolo, Hunter and The Muck Boot Company all available to buy online.
