As a family, we love the outdoors and go on outdoor adventures all year round. However, I’m the first to admit that I’m never very prepared for anything other than sunshine. Whilst the children have wellies and waterproofs, I always forget about myself and just grab the nearest clothing and footwear. Until now.
At the end of the summer holidays, Regatta sent me some beautiful yet practical walking boots and a new coat to set me up for the changing weather of the coming months. I now feel more prepared for autumn adventures than I have ever been before and it’s such a welcome change.
I may be 36, but I’ve never owned a pair of walking boots – despite often walking miles at weekends with the children, going here, there and everywhere. It’s something I’ve never really thought about, and it’s only now having a pair of walking boots that I realise the huge amount of benefits that come with them.
Having new boots that fit my feet perfectly, offer great support and allow my feet to breathe is such a novelty – and something I’m sure I’ll cherish going forward. I’ve never had such comfortable boots – ones that I take off and my feet feel as happy as they did when I first put them on.
I usually wear my normal footwear when we’re out and about – trainers or boots that are made with fashion in mind rather than comfort and durability. But having walking boots has already made such a difference. They grip so well on every surface and help me feel so safe from slipping wherever we’re walking.
Plus, the boots are waterproof – I’ll no longer end up with wet socks and soggy feet! I know that having a good, durable pair of walking boots is something that my feet are going to thank me for.
Team the boots with a gorgeous waterproof jacket and I’m all set for the autumn. With so many pockets, a breathable design and water repellent finish, it’s the perfect coat for everything from the school run to big adventures. It’s super lightweight yet keeps me warm and dry.
Thanks to Regatta, I am now kitted out for the changing weather and ready for all the outdoor adventures we can fit into the autumn and winter. I can’t wait to get exploring – and we already have lots of plans for the upcoming half term too!
