Brasher boots are consistent sellers and are favoured by UK walkers and hikers, with the Brasher Hillmaster GTX still Britain’s best loved men’s hill walking boot at

Sales of Brasher boots are solid throughout the year, with the brand providing a wide range of highly comfortable walking, hiking, and outdoor boots which cater to all seasons. The breadth of the range ensures that no matter what the preferred terrain and weather conditions, there is a good choice of models to suit. The brand has long been a world leader in outdoor footwear since the first boots were released in 1978. The brand was formed by British Olympic Gold Medallist runner and outdoor enthusiast Chris Brasher. He was inspired to produce boots which would match his New Balance trainers for comfort, yet have the functionality to cope with tough off road terrain. The result of his efforts were a new breed of hiking boots which provided an extraordinarily level of comfort, without making a compromise on support, protection and durability. The boots which launched the brand were an instant hit with British walkers, with a quality and comfort never before found in walking boots.

At, Brasher has long been a popular choice with its customers. “Brasher boots are some of the most comfortable on the market, and provide straight out of the box comfort without requiring a lengthy breaking in period” says MD Richard Gundle. He goes on to say that “whilst there is excellent breadth to the range, the Brasher Hillmaster GTX is still the bestselling men’s Brasher model”.

The Brasher Hillmaster GTX is an extraordinary boot, which revolutionised the walking footwear industry on its release in the 1993. The model became an instant bestseller, with it being at the top of the charts for over a decade, with no other manufacturer being able to beat it for comfort, performance and durability for hill and fell walking. Whilst sales are still strong, as the temperatures improve, it is models such as the Brasher Supalite II GTX range which are seeing the biggest increase in sales. The Supalite II GTX still provides the protection and comfort for which Brasher boots have become world renowned, but the Supalite II GTX reduces the weight further by reducing the size of the cuff and using ultra lightweight leather for the uppers, with further weight reductions made in the sole unit. The boot offer improved breathability to cope with warmer weather walks and hikes, yet still feature a Gore-Tex construction for total protection from rain, wind and standing water. “The Supalite II GTX is another extraordinary addition to the Brasher boots range, and it is a great all round boot for all seasons” says Richard.

With sales of the Hillmaster better than ever and popularity on the full range on the increase, it is clear that British outdoor enthusiasts are still enamoured with Brasher, and that it is set to remain as Britain’s best loved manufacturer of walking boots for the foreseeable future.
