Go to Blakes or Milletts and check the hiking shoes/boots section, if you need a pair of shoes for walking, you'll find what you need there.

Thing is, Croute, I've got my silhouette to think about here. You can't walk through North London and maintain a dismissive "we're so much more interesting south of the river, honestly, what's all the fuss about" air when you look like you're wearing brown Transformer toys on your feet. Plus I have to negotiate a multi-terrain route that ranges from Parliament Hill's slightly squelchy underfoot expanses to miles of hard, city pavement.

jefe, what form has your luck taken? I used to rub a bearded friend, which seemed to do the trick, and and he didn't seem to mind.

Oh don't worry, you can find some pretty decent looking hiking shoes/boots. I mean, you won't win a fashion show but you won't have people stopping and asking you where your tractor is as well...

Have a look at the Timberland range, nothing in there that will be much use up the Lake District or even Darmoor but for your needs, plenty to choose from, the Split Rock, Brommily or Rift Ledge models particularly.

Shop

Edit: the Caterpillar range has a few decent models to check out too.

Tonton, it will take about 2 minutes to find out what kind of feet you have, i cannot see how that could be a hassle or humiliating?

Malcolm - you don't have my feet. Seriously though, you're a man who feels good about his body right? And I'm at the far opposite end of the scale. Going into a specialist running shop - the very idea of walking through the door fills me with horror. Now if someone were to set up a shop specifically catering for fat old blokes and staffed by similar, I might give it a go.
