268 Hill Boots

Fully sprung boots for walking the hills and fells. Strong and rugged, designed to work with the foot to give assisted ‘rock’ from heel to toe.  Thick black reverse kip leather upper for maximum strength.

Fitted with a choice of sole finishes.




The 268 style Hill Boots are best suited for walking and hiking on rough ground, up hills and fells and on soft terrain. Produced on our fully-sprung last, the turned-up toe on the finished boots gives aid to walking up & down hillsides. Traditionally used by shepherds for over 150 years, these boots work hard all day everyday and are the ‘short tab’ version of the X10 style.

Made to order, please allow 20 working weeks for delivery.
