3.0 out of 5 stars Bodmin Boots, 27 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Karrimor Men's Bodmin Ii Mid Weathertite Light Mink Walking Boot (Apparel)
As summer approaches and the quagmire becomes a dust road I sought a new pair of boots. Couldn't resist Amazon's offer of these Karrimor Bodmin boots. Always liked Karrimor gear, rucksacks which last for ever, trousers that do the job perfectly etc. Incidentally, I think it was Karrimor that broke the mould and launched the first fabric boots back in the mid 1980s. The boots arrived in sturdy box but smelt a bit of fresh glue! The fit was perfect, they are very light and comfortable. Have completed several long walks, 15-20 miles and no blisters or discomfort but they do get a bit hot! Support around the ankle is disappointingly flimsy, wouldn't use them in rough, mountainous terrain and sorry to see a champhered heel which is not clear or evident in pictures. Haven't got them wet yet so can't comment upon weatherproofness! Overall can't complain for less than 30! RRP is around 70, other makes 80-140 so even with limitations excellent value.

your review is ok but i totaly disagree there 4 stars all day long 5 if you where just talking about the amazing quality for price ratio. I got mine last winter for 24 from sports direct.com i wear them 3 to 4 times a week and with out any exagaration they still look new, REALY new there nice and light and they are water proof, not like a pair of wellies lol but they handle rain,snow,slush all day long i agree that they are a LITTLE week at the ankle but i see that as a big + its because of this you can wear them for the whole day and when i take them off i dont have any pain in my feet that a stiffer,higher boot would give me.They are fantastic boots for the money and when mine eventualy wear out i will be replaceing them with the same pair. ive had boots 5 times the price and these put them to shame,there great and i would recomend them to all.
