What to Wear on a Country Walk from Taurus Footwear!


Country walks are just as idyllic and peaceful despite what the weather brings. And just because you’re prepared for all eventualities and you may be well wrapped up, that doesn’t mean you can’t be fashionable and rock the latest outdoor trends. Here at Taurus Footwear we have some lovely countryside boots that are ideal for walking.

A lightweight, smart coat is a staple item for multi-tasking, outdoor style. Waxed jackets never go out of fashion! Cosy knitted jumpers, sweaters and cardigans will help fight off the cold perfectly on chillier spring days, and will create a stylish, chic look.

Keeping feet warm and dry on a country walk is an absolute must. Finding a pair of waterproof boots that are comfortable and don’t compromise on style is a tricky task. Bits and Pieces Saddlery in Ossett, West Yorkshire believes that the right boot is essential for countryside walking.

Nicola, owner of Bits and Pieces Saddlery says, “We all know that British weather isn’t the most reliable, so a boot that is comfortable and waterproof, but wouldn’t look out of place in a nice pub or restaurant can be hard to find. The Holkham boot from Taurus Footwear is a hardwearing, leather boot, and 100% waterproof. Not only that, they are the ultimate in country fashion and sophistication!”

We think that scarves and gloves are a must-have wardrobe essential – the late winter, early spring time weather is still changeable, so team fingerless gloves with a matching lightweight scarf, for the ultimate in warming outdoor wear that will take you from fresh morning walk, to pub lunch or school run.

Finally – don’t forget your dog! No walk is complete without one – here in the rugged Norfolk countryside where Taurus Footwear is based, we love nothing better than a brisk dog walk along the coastline at Sheringham or Blakeney.
