This review is from: Berghaus Men's Explorer Trek Hiking Boot (Electronics)
I bought a pair of these - through Amazon - in the summer of 2009. Through the summer they were great - comfortable, good grip and waterproof. However, within 10 months of daily use walking the dogs over gentle farmland and tracks, both boots had cracked on the inner edge about the level of the second lace hole (where there is a seam)and were letting in water - even when walking through dewy grass. I am unhappy about the quality as I don't believe that a pair of Berghaus boots at £100 should wear out in under a year of moderate use.
I note that the latest version has no seam in that place now - so perhaps they have upgraded the design.
Mine do not act as a good advert for Berghaus and I will think hard before buying them again.

Mr. Colin Hoggett says:
Mine went in exactly the same place after having only been used about six times. They are out of warrenty, still look as good as new but are now as good as useless. It is a real shame as my last pair of Berghaus were great and lasted for years. Clearly Berghaus cut corners somewhere on cost and quality has suffered as a result - not the way to keep customers.
