Mammut-redWith winter fast approaching (the first snow fell today!) and therefore winter boots coming out of the cupboard again, The Climbers Shop and Mammut are teaming up again for a ‘Boot Camp’  - a chance for you to get your feet checked out by a qualified Podiatrist and get some proper advice with regard to how best to look after your feet.

In collaboration with the Society of Chiropodists & Podiatrists, this free instore one-to-one clinic has been designed to help customers learn more about their feet and ensure they receive the best possible footwear advice for the coming winter season – to top it off, we have a free pair of Bridgedale socks to give away with every appointment.

The Boot Camp will be taking place on Saturday 22nd October with Andrew Stanley from the Rebound Clinic in Settle, who has been a biomechanics consultant to the outdoor industry for nearly 15 years and regularly advises outdoor specialists and outdoor retailers, as well as writing for outdoor magazines.

Andrew will be on hand to discuss injuries relating to walking, climbing and running (check out www.reboundclinic.co.uk for more information) that may be related to your gait - the way you walk and/or run. He will assess your posture and gait and discuss possible biomechanical correction solutions for any presenting condition, advising on footwear and strengthening/flexibility exercises may be appropriate in assisting with your problems.

After each clinic, Climbers Shop staff and Mammut staff will be on hand to offer customers a Mammut boot fitting advice.

To reserve your free one-to-one assessment on Saturday 22nd October call 015394 32297 or email us at info@climbers-shop.com.
