Probably value for the money...,
This review is from: Karrimor Men's Mount Mid Weathertite Hiking Shoe (Apparel)
I bought these about 8 months ago just for regular wear. The first big problem I encountered was the slipping insole problem that people have talked about with other Karrimor products. Only difference is mine was on the right foot (most people seem to have this on the left one for some reason). In fact, that right boot seems to be a bit of lemon what with the slipping insole and a tear that developed at a seam on the front right.
The other problem is that for spring and summer months these were way too hot. Previously I'd been wearing gore-tex Meindls which were lovely and comfortable even in warm weather but I'd decided to go for something about 5x cheaper and 5x hotter.
Finally the sole wore out way too quickly. I haven't been wearing them every day but still the soles have worn through and I'm now looking for replacement boots.
But.. they are very cheap and probably worth the money. Any more than £20 and I'd say pass on them.
So, 4 stars for boots on a budget, 2 stars for the right boot and 3 stars for the left boot. I'll average that out at 3 overall.

Yup, breathability/heat is the issue with fabric boots, interesting to hear your experience with the Gore-tex Meindl's - I use the unlined Meindl Burma Pro MFS which I find waterproof and breathable.
