With so many different choices (we have over 1,000 walking sticks and canes for you to choose from!), narrowing them down to just a few favourites was quite a challenge. However, to give you a flavour of the types of sticks available from WalkingSticks.co.uk, we've selected a few that we feel are particularly noteworthy and definitely cool!
