Blundstone Boots

A heritage brand since 1870, there are styles for him, her and kids. The simplest way to describe these boots is a hardwearing Chelsea Boot and we wear ours for days when a morning dog walk rolls into a business meeting and we need a more professional look. Available in a variety of classic shades of leather and nubuck, each boot is designed with tech to cushion your feet and body as you walk, so they are a good choice for longer walks too.

Prices start from around £130 a pair |  Shop at Blundstone.co.uk

Nike Air Zoom Pegasus

One of Nike’s iconic running shoe styles, they are of course great for running or power walking with your dog but we wear ours for support on regular dry days when we’re zipping around town with the dogs at our side. A variety of colourways available, you can design your own too if you want a coordinated look with your dog.

From £104.95 for both men and women, shop yours at Nike.com


Sorel Caribou Fleece-Trimmed Nubuck and Rubber Snow Boots

On days when it’s super cold, these are the boots to wheel out to keep your feet snug. Alpine chic aside, they are made with waterproof nubuck, are fully lined with removeable felt and are set on a vulcanized rubber platform that's seam-sealed to ensure no rain or snow gets in. The faux shearling cuffs also seal in the warmth. Available in brown or black and priced £150, they are US brand so pay attention to the size guide when ordering.

Pick up your pair at Net-a-porter.com and head to Mrporter.com for men’s styles.

Made in US 990v5 by New Balance

These have long been our staple trainer to carry us through our every day – from home to the studio, lunch time walks, popping out on errands and our walk home. Unlike some of the faddy sneaker styles, they are a timeless heritage style that are well made with quality materials and they perform on comfort and support. Available in both classic colours such as black, navy as well as brighter styles, they will set you back at £180 but will take you through many seasons.

Men’s and women’s styles are available at Newbalance.co.uk

Arctic Sport II Short Boots by Muck Boot

A welly with warmth, this is a two-in-one purchase that will keep your feet both toasty and dry, making them perfect for winter walks and explorations. Lightweight to wear and lined with a cosy fleece, they have a neoprene stretch fit to keep the warm air in and the cold air out, so unlike standard wellies you don't need to pile on the socks underneath.

Priced £105 at Muckbootcompany.co.uk – men’s style also available.
