Three Peaks Challenge
Q. I am doing the 3 peaks challenge for Help the Heroes with a group of mates can anyone advice me on the standard of walking boot I will require. We will be going up in May 2012. The boots should be black for future use but price is not a problem.

A. You do not say which Three Peaks Challenge you are walking. The three most popular are:
But which ever Three Peaks Challenge Walk you are contemplating you will need a proper 3 season walking and hiking boot or better because of the rough ground you will be walking on. Take a look at our extensive Walking and Hiking Boot Product Reviews section though finding some that are black might be a bit of a challenge. The Karrimor KSB Skye X-Lite event Walking Boots are black but there are suggestions that the 2009 model was not that durable. Perhaps the more recent versions are better though we have not had a pair to test.
Hope this helps . . .
