    It all refeclks on what your budget is. Have a look on uttings and field and treks websites some good offers on there. If we new your budge it would be easier to narrow it down.

    A friend of mine has purchased a pair of Jack Pyke and I took the PXXX but I have to say I have seen them and spoken to other users and they all think they are great. You need not spend a fortune to get decent kit and to be frank some of it is total marketing crap.

    A lot of this stuff is often a "fashion" item and so it is possible to buy end of line boots at considerable reductions just because they are "last year's model."

    Given this I'd look around the various "outdoor sports" type stores and see what quality boots they have as end of line. Try them on in the shop and get something that fits you well. It would be hard for us to recommend a boot as it might just not suit you or fit you.

    I've got some of the high leg "shooting" boots and in my view they don't offer the same level of support as the dedicated walking/climbing type boots plus they are also expensive for what seems like a lower quality item. I guess there is an economy of scale with a walking boot.

    Also many people find boots uncomfortable as they might only wear them once a month or similar. I get around this by wearing my "old" boots, that have got too soft for the hill, to work as this means my feet are always broken in to the boots. Of course it depends on what sort of work you do and it also requires that you have a number of pairs of boots in the pipeline all the time but it works for me.
