Today's basic question is:
Why do people appear to wear Wellington style boots when they go out stalking?
I have done my fair share of walking and the there is no way on earth I would ever dream of doing a serious walk in anything resembling a Wellington. A bit of gardening maybe.
I've used Meindl walking boots for last ten years and they are fantastic. Cannot see why anyone would buy wellingtons like Le chameau. Surely decent walking boots and gaiters are better if you are any where other than a nice manicured park?
But I am a novice... What do full guides wear?
