Here at The KitZone, you’ll find a vast array of footwear and boot care products available across the UK from top trusted brands you love. Interested?

Let’s face it, when’s the last time you bought socks? You’ve probably owned the pair you’re wearing now longer than you’ve owned the car you drive or that fridge magnet you don’t even remember buying. When you’re camping, however, grandma’s Christmas socks just don’t cut it. Investing in a proper pair of hiking socks can make your journey up any incline vastly more enjoyable and comfortable. the Bridgedale Summit Sock is one of the finest examples of a hiking sock around. These socks feature dense and strategic cushioning for greatly improved impact resistance and comfort on the trail. Combine this with a fibre content designed to maximise thermal retention and you have the ultra-warm, ultra-comfort hiking sock you’ll never want to take off!
One of the most popular products on our site, and for good reason. The Under Armour Valstetz 1.5 tactical boot is designed to perfectly balance incredible comfort, flexibility and durability for a shoe very few can compete with, especially at this price point. These Under Armour tactical boots use durable synthetic leather and textile upper for uncompromising excellence in both weight and strength. The UA ClutchFit ankle-support system provides support and flex where it’s needed, whilst a TPU toe cap ensures a safe rigidity for added protection. The EVA midsole provides incredible mid-foot comfort and the high-traction rubber lug outsole for grip in any condition. Combo this with a Welded PU Film around the perimeter for abrasion resistance and a lightweight TPU shank for mid-foot support and you have a shoe that earns its place as one of our top sellers
As we’ve discussed in our Boot care Guide, looking after the shoes on your feet has countless benefits for your hiking. This neutral shoe polish contains a blend of waxes, including Carnauba, to create a protective layer that covers scuffs and makes shoes shine.
