What a great experience. After about 4 years of heel, ankle & foot pain I had resigned myself to not being able to enjoy anything more than a 30 min stroll on pathways. I went to see Andrew Stanley at Rebound (Settle) who had some fantastic inserts made for shoes / boots which I wear daily. I took these to George Fishers who has provided every pair of walking boots I have ever owned. The lady measured my feet, listened to the difficulties I have had and patiently showed me a range of wider ladies boots to suit my needs. There was a much bigger choice than I expected and a wide price range. Her knowledge was impressive and her patience very welcome as i didn't feel under any pressure to make a purchase and had lots of time to try the boots on the stone bridge they have specially to try the footwear. Consequently I have just enjoyed a week in the lakes and walked for 5 days for 4 - 6 miles each day with no discomfort during or after the walk WHATSOEVER!!!! I cannot believe the difference and am really delighted that I now feel confident enough to get my maps out and back on the Lakeland fells with hubby and puppy. Its not an exaggeration to say it has changed my life and I can't wait for the better weather, picnics and the higher peaks. Many thanks x
