When it comes to materials for making walking sticks, wood and aluminium are our top two choices. While beautifully crafted wooden canes are more often than not designed to serve as both an aid and a fashion accessory, aluminium walking sticks can be just as attractive and usually much more functional and practical for everyday use.

They are extremely light in weight, easily height adjustable and often foldable for simpler transportation. If you feel an aluminium stick would be the right choice for you, make sure to explore our full range of Aluminium Walking Sticks.
