Very solid boots with some niggles.,
This review is from: BRASHER Hillwalker II GTX Men's Hiking Boot (Apparel)
I've had these boots for a while now bought from a different outlet. They are very hard wearing, warm, and very waterproof. I'd expect nothing less from brasher.
Now the downsides, you need to wear the boots in on some easy treks first. I wouldn't recommend breaking them in from new on a moderate-hard long distance trail. The main reason being that they can be slippy on rubble/loose rocks or mossy rocks. Also, before they are worn in, if you are not used to brasher boots, you may find that the toe lip can catch on some larger rocks when trying to scramble over them.
Saying all that however, if you are a walker/hiker who spends a fair amount of time in the valleys or mountains, you probably wont see much of a problem with them at all. My comments were more directed to the newbie walker who is looking to upgrade their "beginners" boots and get some solid and long lasting ones.
All in all 4/5 as they are excellent boots, but not really recommended for brand new walkers.
