I've had these boots a couple of weeks now so have been able to give them a good test. They are instantly very comfortable and their sizing is accurate. I take an 8 and unlike many other brands an 8 from Berghaus fits perfectly.
They were instantly comfortable and have not required any breaking in period. As I walk my dog over fields, I've had the opportunity in the recent rain to test them out for their waterproofing qualities. Walking for some way in long wet grass they didn't let a drop in. When I got home my feet were bone dry.
So, comfortable and waterproof. Highly recommended.

Walked for 5 and a half hours through the worst weather I've ever walked in. Through puddles mud snow and my socks where bone dry at the end of the day. 'Nuff said!

Like some other reviewers I had to go up a half-size to get a reasonable fit, and even then they were neat, verging on the tight. After a few walks they've stretched a bit and are now very comfortable. Seem to be good quality and completely waterproof. Soles are quite hard, so they're fine on grass, mud etc, but not great on ice.

I have just started doing some proper outdoor activities and needed a decent walking boot. Deciding its a false economy to go for the budget end I opted for the well known make of Berghaus.

Well all I can say is I'm impressed.I have been up Pen y Ghent twice, Ingleborough and up and down Oltley chevin and Ilkely Moor.

They fit well (I'm a size 11 and with thick socks on it fits perfect) - they are definitely waterproof - used them through november and december so the weather has been very wet - been through marsh, bog, shallow streams, long grass and feet have remained dry throughout. I haven't slipped in them, they feel very sturdy and support my ankles.

I haven't had any other decent walking boots to compare them to but cannot find a fault in these from the 3 months use they have had.

Bought these as a birthday present for my son to walk 20 miles a day in the Peak District. He wore them from new for the four day hike and says they were blissfully comfortable. Full marks.

Good boot... lightweight and fairly waterproof. Not built to last though. Moderate usage and sole came away within a year allowing wet feet. Not great in such an expensive brand!

Firstly I didnt necessarily purchase these for hiking. I just wanted a good quality pair of comfy walking boots that would keep my feet warm and dry during the cold muddy winter days, when I either take the dog for a walk or watch the son playing sport.

In the past I made the mistake in purchasing a pair of supposedly half price karrimors for 30 quid which despite the price have been woeful, I literally may as well wear slippers out because my feet are absolutely drenched, even when the grass just has some morning dew.

As a result I thought Id buy a decent pair rather than trying to wing it. So at £52 for the Walnut pair these have been a great buy, comfy, look great and more imporatantly dry feet. Just to add Im a good size 10 and have found the fit spot on.

I thought I would take the time to review the ‘Berghaus EXPEDITORLEA AQ TECH BOOT AM’ hiking boot that I purchased December last year. Initially the boots were bought for a last minute hiking holiday in Peru; which I sadly couldn’t make. Instead they saw an entirely different terrain in the French Alpes as the footwear of choice when frequenting the town of Alpe D’Huez after an arduous days snowboarding.

The boots are modest in appearance, sleek and elegant, the subtle yellow trims complementing the black and grey body. I personally felt they offered a professional look that could comfortably hold their own discretely in a less activity based environment. This was important, being a young single male; I didn’t wish to be categorised as someone who wears wind/water resistant clothing to a cinema or running shoes on a night out… As this is generally comes to you naturally later in life after many years of marriage has eaten away at your self-respect.

When I tried the boots on for the first time in the store I was met with a mixture emotions: delightfully surprised at their lack of weight but apprehensive to what has been sacrificed to achieve it. Were the seams going to burst open leaving my ankles naked with a bitter wind cutting away at them like barbed wire…? Would they offer the durability and contact protection of a wet Espadrille, my feet battered and bruised so that I may have well been walking on my shins? No. How wrong I was to waste time worrying. If I was so inclined I could have spent hours kicking large rocks and my feet would have remained pretty and soft. There were literally no days spent wrapping my heels in plasters as I ‘bedded’ them in either - they immediately hugged onto my ankles and accepted my feet as if they were their own children. Truly a remarkably comfortable shoe.

A brief word with regard to waterproofing - the only moisture encountered was generated internally as a result of my feet crying because they were so happy.

The most awe-inspiring aspect of this shoe is the phenomenal grip they offer. Being in an icy environment I approached many trails around our chalet dubiously, as I had observed several members of our party falter. At first I thought perhaps I tackled the routes differently, maybe subconsciously noted were others went wrong and adjusted my approach. Then I became arrogant. I would walk up 45 degree gradients with my hands in my pockets, I almost welcomed a fall, in my eyes I was a demi-God, and nothing was off limits. My friends quickly cottoned-on to my invincible grip and I could tell that although they would compliment me; it was through gritted teeth. I didn’t care though I was on top of the world. I’d start showboating, running as fast as I could and stopping dead. Even local French law enforcement were astounded as my momentum through me forward leaving the shoes glued to the ice. It was almost too much grip.

The only negative I could contribute to this review is the fact that entropy is inevitable. They will perish to disorder, as leather, societal tensions and much else want to do. I can only hope they remain in production long enough to see that I have amassed a reasonable surplus of size 10s when the End Times approach us. I simply wouldn’t be seen ambling across broken and immolated bodies of our fallen comrades in search of clean drinking water in any other footwear.

All in all these shoes made my holiday, for the mere £90 they cost me I could have had as much fun at my local Ice Arena. I implore anyone with feet to buy them, for not doing so is a terrible injustice to yourself.

I have wide 6.5 feet for a woman and have to go a size up in normal. I usually find mens boots size 7 good but too big in heel. For woman's walking boots, I take a 7.5 wide Meindl Borneo and they are hard, heavy & tight. Clumpy. These are beautiful for 7. Soft, light, perfect. My first outing - 14 miles, the only things that didn't hurt were my feet. Can't say about waterproofing, but have had 2 outings in freezing mud, water and rain & still warm & dry. Reasonable grip too, on rocks and uneven ground, better than Meindl but maybe just because they are so much more flexible, which I like. Not so good in slushy mud as less tread & support. If you like to flex your feet when you walk, these are for you and cheap in comparison (sorry Meindl).

Used these boots straight from the box for a 16 mile walk, very comfortable with no issues. Through long wet grass so waterproofing tested and came through with flying colours.
