The best boots for walking in winter

As winter approaches, the cold and icy conditions can make it challenging to enjoy the outdoors. However, with the right footwear, you can brave the dull weather and continue to engage in your favourite activities without having to worry about frozen toes or slipping and falling.

Good boots are an essential investment for any winter adventurer, providing warmth, protection, and performance that will keep you comfortable and confident throughout the season.

So, this winter, John Norris recommends Zamberlan boots – and here is why…


A Leader in winter footwear

Zamberlan is a renowned Italian brand that has been manufacturing high-performance boots for over 60 years. Their boots are known for their exceptional quality, durability, and warmth, making them a popular choice among outdoor enthusiasts worldwide.

Zamberlan offers a wide range of boots to suit various activities, conditions and terrains, from lightweight hiking boots to burly gamekeeper boots.

The importance of warmth

When temperatures plummet, keeping your feet warm is crucial for overall comfort and safety. Cold feet can lead to numbness, tingling, and even frostbite. Wearing insulated boots with a Gore-Tex liner will help trap heat and prevent your feet from getting wet, which can lead to heat loss and discomfort. Zamberlan boots are renowned for their warmth and insulation, ensuring that your feet stay cosy even in the harshest weather.

Exceptionally durable, high spec boot crafted with single-piece, premium Nubuck leather. The Zamberlan Highland Pro GTX is a sturdy companion across any variety of terrain.

Adequate foot protection

Good boots provide more than just warmth; they also offer essential protection against the harsh winter elements. Thick soles with good traction will help you navigate icy and snowy surfaces safely, reducing the risk of slips and falls.

Zamberlan boots are crafted with Vibram soles, known for their excellent grip and durability, ensuring that you have a secure footing in all conditions. The Zamberlan Lynx GTX Boa hunting boot features an innovative lace tightening system, ensuring that even in the worst weather conditions your feet will be secure.

Performance for outdoor adventures

Whether you're hiking in the snow, on the moors in the rain, or simply walking your dog on muddy terrain, good boots will enhance your performance and overall experience. Breathable uppers will allow your feet to sweat and dry, preventing blisters and discomfort.

Zamberlan boots are designed with advanced technologies that promote breathability and moisture control, keeping your feet comfortable even during strenuous activities.


Investing in a good pair of winter boots is one of the best ways to stay warm, comfortable, and safe during the coldest months of the year. Zamberlan boots are built to withstand the harshest conditions, providing the protection and performance you need to enjoy the outdoors all winter long.
