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.

    Stopped a Cane Corso dog from attacking

    Posted by LollieS on 4th Aug 2018

    This stick is super strong. While out walking my golden retriever, a woman lost control of her Cane Corso dog.(Look up Cane Corso aka Italian Mastiff. It's a 100# + beast!) It lunged and tried to attack my dog. At the last second, I hit the attacking dog over the head with my hickory walking stick, and stopped it in it's tracks! I'm a 5'4" woman. My Brazos walking stick became the great equalizer. Saved me and my dog! Worth it's weight in gold!

    Love My Stick!

    Posted by Kurt Meyer on 21st Jun 2018

    I looked at four different wood walking stick vendors and finally settled on Brazos. I wasn't interested in a lot of customization, but I did want engraving. I ended up choosing Brazos because I thought the finish of their walking sticks was better than another vendor that was also a choice finalist. This is the first walking stick I've ever purchased or owned. I recently experienced a low back pain flareup and thought it might be useful to have a walking stick for future flareups. The walking stick is absolutely beautiful. I love the areas where former limbs used to be as the coloring and designs adds character to the walking stick. I like the lacquer finish as well. The free form hickory walking stick has a really nice heft to it. I look forward to years of enjoyable use from it. Thank you to all the employees of Brazos for such a great product and purchase experience.
