    Ladies Boots

    Hey guys and girls,

    SWMBO has expressed an interest in getting out and about for a bit of tramping and hunting as the weather warms up. first thing she needs is a decent pair of boots so the question is what do your lady friends use? What would you recommend?

    Don't want to spend a bomb coz she'll probably do one or two trips then decide she doesn't like it. On the flip-side, if she doesn't have decent boots there's not much chance she'll enjoy even the first.

    Any second hand pairs out there with some life left in them? She's a size 9.

    Cheers,
    Adam

    we got pair from kathmando at reasonable price..... the trick is to find pair with decent heel so she doesnt end up on her bum when walking downhill in the wet.
    johnbull make a really good pair of non steelcap boots that tick all the boxes.

    Biggest mistake you can make is assuming that she knows about sock selection.... She Who Must Be Obeyed got a reasonable set of Kathmandu boots (for day tripping) but only used anklet socks and ended up with massive blisters (for which I am still being held responsible...) Be very careful Grasshopper...your life may depend on it...
