Product Description

Product Description

This 2 to 3 season leather walking boot is designed for comfort and durability in challenging conditions. Tuneable acing, high quality supple leather upper combined with Gore -Tex technology ensures optimum climate comfort and waterproof durability.

Manufacturer's Description

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.

Yes these are comfy boots straight out of the box, so are my carpet slippers but I wouldn't dream of going hiking in 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.

Very good quality. Very light to wear. Have now owned boots for 4 weeks and have worn them every work day. Soles are quite hard in composition, and can tend to be a little slippery when wet on stone and wood. That said, the soles have shown very little wear over the 100km + I've walked with them.

I bought this boots to do the Hadrian's Wall walk, and although I did not give them enough time to wear in they were pretty comfortable, other than a couple of blisters on the right foot.
The real issue is the grip, it's non existent in the wet, I could not believe have slippery they were, I slipped and fell twice on wet rocks, not fun and quite dangerous. Hadrian's Wall is not a challenging hike, other than distance, but even going up and down the few inclines along the walk these boots felt unsafe.
I live in London and wear these to work and even walking along the roads I am conscience of keeping off wet leaves and manhole covers etc, they just don't feel secure.
I can only give these boots one star due to comfort.
Until they change the sole and grip of these boots I would not buy again.

Boots arrived and I took them straight out on a 15 mile hilly walk. Like wearing slippers. Have since done a very wet 6 hour walk and my socks were bone dry. I understand that these are Sir Chris Bonington's boot of choice - now I know why. Buy them, wear them, wash them in fresh water, cover them in Nikwax Aqueous wax and they will last years.

I bought these boots less than a year ago, for general walking, with the occasional hill. As a warden on a nature reserve, the need for good quality, waterproof boots is pretty high.
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.

I highly rate Berghaus walking boots and was very impressed by this product. However after only 7 months one of them has split on the leather upper. I contacted Amazon who stated that as they were purchased over 30 days beforehand I should contact the manufacturer, Berghaus. This I did to be informed that Amazon are at fault and should deal with this directly. I contacted Amazon who again stated I needed to speak to Berghaus. This I did and continue to go round in circles!
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.

These are my second pair of these boots; delivery was very prompt.
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.

These boots are superb in quality and comfort.
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.
