Hi, I am thinking of just buying a trekking pole (other hand is holding an umbrella) when I arrive in Pamplona in a month. Is it a good idea?

They have outdoors stores there (including a Decathalon), so it’s possible.

I have on many occasions bought a staff from a shop in calle San Nicolas towards the Plaza de Castillo. They had been there forever so the prices were way out of date - €7s or so.

You won't always be holding an umbrella, so I suggest buying two poles and stowing one when you are using the umbrella. Or figure out how to attach your umbrella to your backpack. You can buy poles at Caminoteca in the old town.

I appreciate all your input and the map is very helpful as well. Now, I don't feel the pressure of buying the trekking poles at Costco. Thank you guys :)

In the map above note that Caminoteca is very close to the cathedral so it is easy to get to when walking through town. Also note that on the marked way from the train station shortly after leaving the station you turn right to start heading south-east. If instead you turn left to go north-west you will shortly get to Decathlon. There are street buses running along there. There is a post office up that way also if you want to post something to Ivar in Santiago.
