What are the Best Inconspicuous Walking Sticks?
At WalkingSticks.co.uk, we offer a wide range of beautiful canes that can be matched with your sense of style. However, carrying a walking stick around with you can cause you to receive a fair few stares, an issue that isn't often spoken about in the walking stick world. If you want a break from these odd looks, take a look at our favourite walking sticks on the market that, at first glance (and second, and third), don't look like mobility aids.

Its formal style also allows the umbrella stick to be used in formal events and tea parties without drawing attention to itself.
With its classic black umbrella canopy and its ash Derby wood grain handle, the walking stick umbrella provides a classic look that doesn't easily go out of style. The Black Walking Umbrella also features a Derby handle that can be hooked over your arm or a table's edge when it isn't in use. This makes it perfect for when you're dining out or you need full use of your hands.

Burgundy Tartan Crutch-Handle Adjustable Walking Stick Umbrella
If you suffer from reduced mobility, carrying both a walking stick and an umbrella on a regular basis can feel like an impossibility.

The Burgundy Tartan Crutch-Handle Adjustable Walking Stick Umbrella ensures you don't have to choose between support and staying dry.
While it has a range of features that make it a stabilising walking stick, the walking stick umbrella also has a canopy so it can be used as an umbrella. The Tartan Adjustable Walking Stick Umbrella's soft-feel crutch handle is twofold in its positive effects. This is because it's comfortable to hold while you're using the aid as an umbrella and crutch handles also bear your weight directly over the stick's shaft when it's being used as a walking stick, making it a highly effective cane too.
