To size a ferrule correctly you'll need to measure the exact diameter of the bottom of your walking stick or walking cane. The size of the stick diameter should correspond roughly to the size of the ferrule you will need. Keep in mind, these rubber tips are somewhat pliable (a good thing!), so if the ferrule opening is slightly smaller than the diameter of the bottom of your cane or stick, you'll be just fine -- it'll stretch to accommodate the difference. It's better to get a slightly smaller ferrule for your needs, than a slightly larger one.

All rubber isn’t created equally. Most drug store, discount rubber tips (ferrules) are made with an excess of clay mixed with rubber, the result is a cheap cane/stick tip that will wear out within a couple of weeks of extensive use.

Our premium rubber ferrules are just that, premium. The high quality rubber used to make our walking stick ferrules will last for months under normal use, and even years if used sporadically. If used for step by step support, you can expect our premium ferrules to last at least two to three months, but “mileage” will vary depending on walking conditions.

Our rubber ferrules have a wide grip, allowing more of the ground to be grasped while you’re walking, thus offering superior support. Furthermore, our ferrules all have a metal washer inside, thus offering even more support and stability which will, in turn, allow the ferrule to last longer. Low quality ferrules do not have metal washers inside of them.

Best of all, our premium rubber ferrules come standard on all of our walking sticks (unless an upgraded spike option is chosen). 

To be sure, determining the right size walking stick or can be a subjective art form. What feels right for one person may feel horrible for another. However, with almost two decades of experience in making handcrafted, wooden walking sticks and canes, you can be sure that we have some opinions on the matter!

Walking Sticks

  • For small children and shorter adults, we generally recommend a 41-inch stick.
  • For people who are shorter than 5’4″, we recommend a 48-inch stick.
  • For people who are between 5’4″ and 5’11”, we recommend a 55-inch stick.
  • For adults over 5’11”, we recommend a 58-inch stick.

Walking Canes

  • For people who are shorter than 5’4″, we recommend a our lighter 34-inch canes
  • For people who are between 5’4″ and 6’, we recommend our standard 37-inch canes as the best starting point.
  • For adults over 6’, we offer 40-inch canes.

Cane sizing is best achieved by standing up nice and straight, relaxing your arm naturally to the side, and having someone measure the distance from your wrist to the floor.

Again, let me reiterate, the sizing recommendations listed above are only suggestions. For people needing step-by-step support, it’s best to consult your doctor or another medical professional about your exact sizing needs.

    Excellent

    Posted by Daniel Ford on 10th Feb 2016

    I bought a cheap foldable cane from Amazon that among other issues came with a ferrule whose rubber was so hard I could barely score it with a knife and it would slip on my hard wood floors. This one is perfect.

    GREAT PRODUCT

    This is a very sturdy, thick tip and I am so glad I ordered it instead of one I saw on Amazon. It just fits my walking stick which I have had for 30 years.

    Saves the Point

    The tip saves the brass spike so it won't dull or break on hard surfaces like pavement or cement.
