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.
