    Default Advice on Shooting Boots

    I'm looking forward to the game season once more but am now suffering with arthritis in my ankle. I purchased a new pair of Le Chameau neoprene wellies but am wondering if a decent pair of lace up waterproof boots would offer more support for my ankle.
    Does anyone use lace up boots and if so which do you recommend for shooting / beating?

    Best wishes,

    Paul

    Le Chameau do a laced up boot that looks like it is what you require. Search shooting boots on net. When I was shooting our game keeper used something similar.

    Thanks Glueman, I'll take a look. I'm after either leather or Gore-tex.

    I like traditional leather and have been using Meindl boots for a while now and can’t fault them. I’ve got a couple of pairs, regular hiking size (mine are the Bhutans) and a higher laced one, both give great support. They are pricey but imo worth it.

    Hi Paul,
    Just had a pair delivered this morning. I settled on the Hanwag Tatra Top GTX from The bushcraft store. I've just looked at them and they seem just the job for the coming season.

    I have had a pair of Harkila boots for 5 years, great support and hard wearing - similar to these -https://www.johnnorris.co.uk/collections/featured/products/harkila-mountain-hunter-gtx-10in-boots

    Thanks everyone - That's given me plenty of food for thought.
    I did notice that John Norris were selling some Harkila's half price at 160.
    What I need to do is to find somewhere fairly local where I can try on some of these boots as its a real gamble going mail order on something as expensive as this.

    I have used the Lowa GTX boots for a while, they are waterproof and offer brilliant support for standing around for long periods, if you are a 9-9.5 pm me.
    In the past I have also used a shooting stick seat for my driven days, very effective!

    +1 for Harkila boots. Sturdy support and extremely hardwearing. Properly waterproof too.
