Brasher is a premium quality outdoor footwear manufacturer that specialise in hiking socks, shoes and boots, and we are proud to be a Premium Brasher dealer. Founded by Olympic gold medallist Chris Brasher, who was Roger Bannister's pacemaker, when completing his record breaking four minute mile and also co-founder of the London Marathon. Chris set out to make a walking boot that was as comfortable as a running shoe and after five years of testing in the Lake District the Brasher boot was born. They are one of the most popular footwear brands we stock as they are purposefully designed for the types of terrain we have in the U.K. They are also more suited to the foot shapes common in Britain. Brasher strive to make lightweight footwear that is built to last and comfortable straight out of the box. All of their footwear range is designed, tested and manufactured in the UK. and favour a traditional appearance.
Salomon was founded as an Alpine mountain sports brand in 1947 in the France and is largely known as a manufacturer of skiing related products. Since their creation however, they have applied their technical know how to other mountain based sports such as trail running and hiking. Salomon create footwear with an emphasis on 'fast and light', to achieve this Salomon's footwear favours high tech materials and man made fabrics over leather. Their shoes and boots as a result have a modern, technical appearance opposed to more traditional looking walking and hiking footwear. As well as being extremely lightweight, their footwear is also strong and supportive. Salomon employs 'advanced chassis' systems, that is positioned between the outsole and midsole, that gives good heel hold and stability. Salomon is a great choice for someone looking for a extremely breathable, lightweight boot or shoe with all of the strength and support of their leather alternatives.
