Walsh 'Challenger Hainsworth' Men's Retro Made in England trainers in royal guard red. Here's the clever thing about these Walsh Challenger Trainer Boots. The Royal Red melton Hainsworth fabric utilised on the upper is also famously used on Regimental Guards tunics, so Walsh decided to add a horse hair tongue in black to imitate the look of the Royal Guards bearskin hat... well you might as well go the whole hog.

The striking Retro white Walsh chevron accentuates the sides and a black nubuck heel counter is home to the iconic Gold Walsh signature. Union Jack branding reflects the Made in England aspect of the boots. Finished with a layered vibram outsole in black and white with contoured black grip, these Walsh Challenger Hainsworth boots are comfortable as well as supremely stylish!

The Walsh Challenger Boot was originally developed in the early 1980s as an extreme trail and fell running boot. The Challenger Boot was ideal for the difficult terrains and conditions encountered on Bolton's 'Rivington Pike' fell race... and hailing from Bolton, the Rivington Pike is a race that Walsh know all about!

So, let's give you the lowdown on the Hainsworth Melton fabric used to create these limited edition Walsh 'Challenger boots. Since 1783 Hainsworth have been manufacturing woollen cloth. The fabric has clothed Royalty, the military, emergency services and has also been used for ceremonial purposes. Hainsworth fabric has also furnished the interior of many a royal palace throughout the world including the seat of the Lord Speaker in the House of Lords, the Upper House of Parliament!

The Hainsworth Melton fabric on these Challenger trainer boots is known for it's weatherproof qualities (often used for donkey jackets and pea coats). Melton is a solid cloth in which the twill weave pattern is completely concealed due to the finishing processes. The dense construction and concealed weave make the fabric hard wearing and wind and weather resistant - perfect for a pair of Walsh Challenger Boots then!
