Walking wellies offer more sophistication in terms of foot support and shock absorption. A premium walking welly is lightweight enough to be comfortable, but sturdy enough to last for miles.
For boots that you can walk in all day every day, do have a look at the Aigle Parcours. A lot of research went into the design of these boots and the result is a unique triple-density sole, designed to absorb the impact from walking and provide support and comfort, as well as being tough and resistant where you need it, so the boots last longer. They call this technology anti-fatigue, so you can walk for hours on end, over all kinds of terrain, and not even think about your feet. Aigle tested out these boots on farmers, hunters, environmentalists and forest rangers.
The Aigle Parcours family of boots includes a standard pull-on in the Parcours 2, the Vario with an adjustable waterproof gusset, and the ISO which is neoprene-lined, making it more of a cold-weather boot.
From Le Chameau, the Giverny is a great option for walking, thanks to the dual-density cross sole that bears the brunt of all-terrain walking so you’re left with comfy feet even at the end of a long day. The design and colour options are really stylish too
A good pair of farm wellies need a good grippy sole, and supreme comfort and support. You can easily find yourself covering a fair few miles on foot, so the walking wellies above are worth looking into.
A boot that has been popular with farmers for years is the Le Chameau Vierzon – it has become quite the icon in the welly world. The suppleness of Le Chameau’s rubber is in a class of its own, making these incredibly comfortable to wear.
For a tough boot designed for muck and with less of a classic welly look, the Muck Boots Muckmaster tall boot is a great investment for warmth, comfort and durability.
