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.
