Boots and wellies for surviving strenuous stalks, keeping your feet dry and comfortable
Zamberlan Hunter Pro
Manufactured with a Gore-Tex® insulated lining to ensure feet remain warm and dry, Zamberlan’s flagship boot also employs Vibram and a Darwin Wide last to give better comfort and stability to wider feet. Rubber toe reinforcements protect the boot from heather, briars and sharp rocks.
The soft flex system on the ankle area helps with foot placement and ankle roll, allowing great movement while walking, yet still retaining vital lateral support.

Harkila Woodsman GTX
This tall boot has been designed to be extremely supportive, so it is ideal for hill stalking, and it has a flexible forefoot for maximum comfort. The Gore-Tex® lining means this boot is 100 per cent waterproof and breathable.
The modern styling makes this boot extremely lightweight and functional, and an ideal option for hunts during the autumn months. Available in sizes EU 40-48.
Ariat Catalyst Defiant
Seen here in the 10″ high-leg model, the Catalyst XV Defiant boots are made for hill stalking in some of Britain’s more unforgiving terrain, with a Gore-Tex lining and 400g of Thinsulate insulation.
Suprisingly light despite their robust construction, they’re comfortable straight out of the box without needing a lengthy breaking-in period, and secure when moving on the hill, according to professional stalker and Sporting Rifle contributor Chris Dalton.
Aigle Parcours 2 Excellence M
The rugged Parcours 2 Excellence M is part of the large Aigle Parcours family, which is characterised by its anti-fatigue properties. With its tri-density rubber sole and shock-absorbing cushion, the Parcours 2 boot has been offering exceptional comfort since 2012, allowing you to walk further without getting tired.
The Excellence M also includes a leather-lined shock-absorbing foam insole. Thanks to its perforation-resistant reinforcement, the Parcours 2 Excellence M can handle challenging terrain as well as doing the rounds on the estate.
Ridgeline Warrior EXP
Ridgeline’s top-end boot, this high-performance yet still affordable option is an excellent choice for all forms of winter weather.
Made with full-grain wax leather with a Hydroguard membrane and Thinsulate liner, this boot is made to be seriously weatherproof, while extra grip on those slippery surfaces comes thanks to the Hyper Grip rubber composite sole, specially developed for Ridgeline.
This boot is the complete package, and with an appealing price tag to boot.
