I don’t know about you but over lockdown and beyond we’ve had a new found adoration of the great outdoors and nature in all it’s glory. It’s almost that when we’ve finally had a chance to slow down from the daily grind, we’ve truly appreciated what we have around us and what we’ve been missing. I’ve always loved the great outdoors and have found its given me great comfort whenever i’ve needed it and try and use free time to plan a trip to the coast, countryside or hill walking with the family. Lately my social life has also made the change from planning a walk and socialise rather than a meal or evening out. This has mainly happened because over lockdown i’ve had a chance to reflect and prioritise differently. I have lived in my new shiny hiking boots and they didn’t even need wearing in! Where have you been all my life? They’ve taken me up hills, a 16K charity walk with friends, provided stability on the beach, helped me navigate rocks not to mention provided comfort navigating a castle on my last trip. As well as being functional they’re also stylish and look great too, am so happy with the quality and comfort.
My other half has been rocking the chocolate brown waterproof lushness that are these boots.. he has just done a walk from Barnard castle to Darlington and said they were perfect for an 8 hour trek. https://www.tog24.com/collections/mens-footwear/products/ingleborough-mens-vibram-waterproof-boots-chocolate-red
I had a great time recently on a ‘proper’ hike which took me 16K along the Teesdale way and although very hard work we saw some beautiful sights along the way and felt amazing that we had achieved it. Our aim as a group of ladies is to complete the whole distance in manageable chunks when busy lives can accommodate! https://www.ldwa.org.uk/ldp/members/show_path.php https://www.tog24.com/collections/accessories-bottles-flasks/products/rawdon-0-5l-bottle-flask-denim
I think if you have the right boots you can conquer anything!
We were kindly gifted these boots so we can keep taking great content on our trips. Tog 24 are where we now look to for all our outdoor clothing needs not to mention amazing kids coats for them finally going back to school! https://www.tog24.com/collections/all/products/bilton-womens-sunshine-t-shirt-oatmeal-marl
They’re even sturdy enough for balancing on logs, or posing like you’re a lumber jack if it floats your boat!
