There are many different styles and qualities of Nordic walking poles. Some people are disappointed to learn that the poles they bring to my classes aren’t the best poles for them (ie: they’re noisy, difficult to adjust, locking system doesn’t hold, boot tips are too hard, straps are cumbersome etc.) Other people discover that they’ve purchased trekking/hiking poles, not Nordic walking poles. I suggest learning about Urban Poles by borrowing from me first. Then make an informed decision when you’re ready to buy.
