They are an award winning, leather shooting boot that combines new technology with innovative materials to revolutionise the standard leather boot, offering unparalleled comfort and uncompromising style. Two sets of shock absorbing soles (3mm and 6mm) allow interchangeable adaptability between seasons;

A mud guard barrier promises ‘tank-like’ protection against wear and tear, these boots are definitely designed to last. After being awarded the New Footwear Product of the Year at the IPC Shooting Awards, The Hunter Balmoral Hawksworth is certainly the boot to watch out for!

 Carefully created especially for women, the Hunter Balmoral Westerley Boot (pictured below) are contoured to cushion your leg and foot, while providing that all essential ankle padding.

Water will glide straight off the tumbled and smooth grain leather; the Sympatex lining will also supply outstanding waterproof protection, whilst retaining breathable comfort.
