A Walk in the Woods, based on Bill Bryson's best-selling travel memoir, comes to cinemas on September 18 and to celebrate, we're giving you the chance to win a pair of £150 waterproof leather Salomon hiking boots that will ensure you're prepared for the great outdoors this autumn.

The film features an all-star cast led by Robert Redford as Bryson and includes Nick Nolte and Emma Thompson

Upon his arrival back in the United States following two decades in the UK, Bryson wants to find a way to reconnect with his homeland. Impulsively he decides to hike a section of the longest continuous footpath in the world, The Appalachian Trail, 2,000 arduous miles stretching from Maine to Georgia, an expedition men half his age struggle to complete.

When his old buddy Katz (Nick Nolte), a crude, overweight, recovering alcoholic, calls him out of the blue and offers to accompany him, Bryson has no choice other than to accept. Thus begins an adventure as they encounter weird and wonderful characters and face hilarious trials and tribulations along the way. The men gamely persevere and together they learn that some roads are better left un-travelled.

In A Walk in the Woods, Bryson and Katz discover having the right kit for an adventure is vital. The Salomon X Ultra Trek GTX is a waterproof leather boot packed with features that make it perfect for hiking (or even a walk in the woods!), yet it only weighs in at around 500g.
