When non essential shops re open, where would people recommend going for good trail shoes and hiking boots, near Belper? I’m guilty of only having been so go outdoors in the past, and ordering directly off the Asics outlet. But now I’m keen to get a bit more expert advice and something more well fitted for me.
I recently had to pay about £9 total postage to receive a pair of trainers that didn’t fit and then sent them back - so keen to avoid that pitfall of online again
The chaps who runs the footwear section in Outside at Hathersage us excellent. I had struggled for years with finding a hiking boot that suited me. He literally looked at my feet and passed me the perfect fitting boot.
I'm going to put a little plug in here for 'Accelerate' in Sheffield if that's ok, they're also very good. Less than handy for you, I realise, though they are very easy to get to from the M1.
For anyone who can't wait until 'non essential' shops reopen, they've had quite a lot of practice now at recommending mail order & 'click & collect' shoes based on video/phone consultations. Goes some way to taking the guesswork out of buying online. https://www.accelerateuk.com
