Not content with one national landmark, Peter Lockey and Gordon Davison chose to add their own. In 1966, the two keen climbers from the North East of England, Lockey and Davison decided to open a store that sold the sort of outdoor products that met their own exacting needs. Taking its name from the founders’ initials, the LD Mountain Centre quickly gained a reputation for designing, testing and manufacturing the best gear in the business. This innovative, performance driven and high quality kit went by the name of Berghaus. It was performance wear before performance wear was even around. And it’s still performing over 40 years later.

As always happens with modern leather, the old ones have cracked at the bending point and now started to separate from the sole at the same point (due I believe to the use of aggressive tanning techniques to save money in the tanneries). Also, they soon show themselves not to be really waterproof in wet grass, but no worse than any other brand in this respect. They have given me about two years of use 5 or 6 days a week and the treads are wearing out now.
Having said all this, these boots are supremely comfortable, and at internet prices are a good buy for the use I get out of them. With the possible exception of a long-discontinued Salomon boot, these are definitely the least bad of the modern crop of cheaply made boots that I have tried over the years. Hence the repeat buy.
At first, these boots were excellent. Extremely comfortable and waterproof, right out of the box.
However, after a few months I noticed that the soles were wearing thin... seriously. There's so little tread left, you wouldn't believe. The soles definitely do not have the wear that you'd have from a Vibram sole.
Also, the leather on my boots has now split, where the boots flex, rending them useless.
I would have expected more from a name like Berghaus. For the prices you pay, you'd expect your boots to last for more than 10 months.
Two days after receiving them I undertook some very tough walking in the Peak district over a 5 day period in all weather conditions, the boots were dry and comfortable with not a blister to be seen.
Please one of you contact me directly with a POSITIVE response. This is not the first time Amazon have failed to resolve a faulty product issue I have had with them.
A boot's primary purpose is to afford the wearer better grip, traction and support than that provided by a shoe or trainer.
I have given these boots a good trial during the last 8 months (1200+ miles) in all conditions and across all terrains and can report that they afford the poorest grip and traction of any boot that I have ever owned. The fault lies with the tread design which lacks any proper cross cut deep lug grip. In damp or wet conditions these boots are potentially lethal and I have never before skidded or slipped so much in any other boot (or shoe!)
I really wanted to like these boots but have had to reluctantly conclude that they are not fit for purpose.
