Our boot-hire service covers walking boots from children's size 10 right through to adult sizes. Boots are available for weekend, week or fortnight hire with a deposit refundable on return. You can reserve in advance, but only for a maximum of one week before the first day of use. Hire costs are £15 per week or part of a week three days and up, £10 for one or two days for adults and £10 for children.
Our adult hire boots are Scarpa Rangers, if you enjoyed wearing them while out on the hills, they are available to buy instore and online. If you are walking in winter and snow, these boots will take a pair of microspikes, however we do not hire microspikes.
Please contact us to confirm availability in your size and to reserve boots. Don't panic, we have plenty in stock. However there may be limited availability during peak periods - e.g. - during school holidays, etc.
Boot hire is a particular help to parents, allowing kids to try outdoor activities without the commitment of purchasing footwear for growing feet. Ask about Junior Boot Exchange service, too...
Full details of hire terms and conditions are available in the store, but it's just common sense and courtesy really - boots should be returned in the same clean state as supplied to you, and on time.
