As the Winter days get longer, it means more of us can put on our walking boots and get outdoors in nature.

From woodland walks to hikes up mountains, walking is not only good for our physical health but has proven mental health benefits too.

The NHS website explains how walking briskly can help you build stamina, burn excess calories and improve heart health.

If you want to step up your walking game in 2022 or invest in good quality walking boots, it's good news - GO Outdoors and Blacks currently has fantastic options for less.
