Aviemore Ellis Brigham new walking boots try out

Written by Fiona

Ellis Brigham Mountain Sports in Aviemore have taken the “try before you buy” concept on walking boots a step further this summer.

You can try on a pair of the new The North Face Vectiv Exploris mid boots at The North FaceVectiv Test Zone and also walk out of the door.

You can walk as far as you like, where you like and the boots simply need to be returned by 5.30pm that day, or the next day if you miss that time. (There will be a 1p charge on a debit or credit card to ensure you don’t keep hold of the boots.)

Being able to test the boots on your preferred terrain gives customers a better chance of ensuring they are comfortable. Once returned back to store, there’s no obligation to buy.

Good one Ellis Brigham.

Note: I am not receiving anything in return for this post. I just thought it was a nice idea.
