Walking Sticks For Young Adults 2022

Friday, 18 March 2022  |  Admin

We associate walking sticks with older people, but young people also get injured, and it's hard to argue that a striking walking stick doesn't add to an outfit! Likewise, young adults with walking difficulties deserve the support a cane could provide, so what's standing in the way? 

Do Young People Use Walking Sticks?

Walking sticks are often associated with older people, even though many younger people use them. Embarrassment and awkwardness can lead young people to try and struggle through without a cane, or end up going out in public less often. Thankfully, with our range of stylish and appealing walking canes, this doesn't need to be the case.

Our Favourite Walking Sticks for Young People

To help you find the right stick for your style, we've put together a collection of some of our favourite sticks for young adults. These range from practical lightweight sticks with a bit of flair to elegant wooden sticks that can help a young person gain some suave clout.

Why Should Young People Use Walking Sticks?

There are many different reasons why a young person might need a cane. Some are temporary, for instance during recovering from surgery or a broken leg. Some are permanent, like juvenile arthritis or multiple sclerosis. 

Although for many it may be possible to lean on friends and family, using a walking stick is a far better option. Not only does it grant independence and relief from pain, but depending on the condition it can help speed your recovery. 

What If I Feel Embarrassed?

Don't feel embarrassed! Not only are walking sticks symbolic of strength, authority and stability but they can be a striking, unique accessory. If you need any reassurance, it might be worth taking a look at the celebrities who have recently been seen with walking sticks, including Jessie J, Brad Pitt, Halle Berry, and Scott Disick. 

Are There Walking Sticks Suitable For Young People?

Absolutely, yes! Dull and bleak canes are banned from this list! Many young cane users are shocked and amazed by how many compliments they get on their statement canes, and an unusual walking stick can be a great conversation starter.

The internet is crammed with young people who aren't sure if they can pluck up the courage to use a waking stick. Body positivity and self-love are continuing to gain popularity and media attention. Accepting yourself, your disability and your walking stick is the next frontier of the movement, so why not be a part of it?
