As May is National walking month, we thought we’d gather together a little round up of our favourite essential items for walking.

Everything from specialist innersoles to fitness trackers, these must have items will ensure that you’ll be walking the walk in comfort and style.

We love the stylish comfort of the Ayse trainer from Vionic

What Should I Carry When Walking?

Depending what kind of walk you’re planning, you can carry as little as a water bottle or as much as a rucksack full of essentials!


Wear sensible clothing; layers are a great idea.

Always wear a watch — or have some way of tracking the time. Pack a lightweight rucksack with:

  1. A bottle of water
  2. A torch
  3. Sunscreen
  4. Paracetamol
  5. A snack — or two!

Power Walking

Wear lightweight clothing that gives freedom of movement. Again, layers are preferable.

  1. Wear sunscreen
  2. A pedometer (or fitness tracker to see how many steps you’ve done)
  3. Carry a waterbottle
