Tuesday, 29 June 2021  |  Eugene

When choosing which walking stick is for you, the most important factors to consider are comfort, support and convenience. Will the handle style complement your hand size and preference of grip? Is the support sturdy enough to support your weight, and is it the correct height to allow you to walk comfortably? Will the stick be convenient, and will it fit easily into your lifestyle without causing a hassle? 

Whatever your preference, at WalkingSticks.co.uk, we're confident we have the right stick for you. We stock virtually every handle type and style of stick you can imagine, so it's best to have a browse for yourself to see which sticks are for you. With that said, we can help you out by highlighting some of the most convenient sticks around: Folding Walking Sticks.

Why Choose a Folding Cane?

Folding walking sticks are excellent for virtually any environment and activity, as they can be stowed away into a small bag or pouch when not needed. This means that you won't have to carry a burdensome stick around with you for hours on end, and can instead enjoy the use of both of your hands when you need to. Conversely, you can easily pull the stick out and enjoy comfort and support when you start to feel tired.
