Best Shoes for Dog Walking
Whether it’s a hike up a hill or a ramble around your local park, walking your dog is a great exercise for mind and body. Your shoes should not cause you any discomfort, so finding the right shoes is important in keeping your feet healthy too. If you are walking the dog 2-3 times a day, a pair of supportive footwear is paramount. Look out for shoes that have a hard-wearing sole and built-in arch support too. Leather uppers are breathable and help keep your feet cool, whilst waterproof shoes are practical for unruly weather.

What are the best waterproof walking shoes?
Begg Shoes is based in the north of Scotland, so we know first hand how important waterproof shoes can be! Even walking through wet grass can soak unsuitable shoes. Our wide range includes Gore-tex shoes which are 100% waterproof, breathable and rigorously tested. Read more about how Gore-Tex keeps your feet dry. Waterproof shoes for dog walking are ideal for wet weather, wet grass and wet dogs that decide to shake off right next to you!
