Grubs walking shoes

At our annual British Nordic Walking convention at the end of last year Grubs footwear very kindly offered free shoes to all BNW instructors. We have been road testing our new shoes ever since. So far we are both very impressed. They are instantly comfortable, no wearing in required, with chunky Vibram soles that provide good cushioning in the heel for an active foot strike. They have a raised heel that tilts you slightly forward, perfect for encouraging 'the lean' and walking with purpose. After 6 weeks of walking in the wet they are still keeping our feet dry, a couple of instructors have commented that they possibly have less grip on very slippery ground than some other makes, but we have not noticed this. General feedback is if anything they come up a little small, so if you're between sizes go up not down. Grubs are offering a 25% discount to all Nordic Walkers.

Back in 2015 Mary wrote a blog on the correct footwear for Nordic Walking which we would recommend reading if you are thinking of buying new shoes and are unsure what is right for you. Follow this link for the Grub website. They are a family run business and incredibly helpful.

Nordic Walk yourself fit in Suffolk.
