1.0 out of 5 stars No longer a quality boot, 28 Dec 2013
This review is from: Brasher Hillmaster II GTX Mens Boots - Brown (Misc.)
This is my fourth pair of Brasher Hillmasters. The quality used to be first class, the boots broke in quickly and lasted for a number of years even when worn every day for work. At £120 they were good value for money.

When examining the latest pair (bought in October 2013) I noticed that the finish of the inside of the boot is badly done compared to the previous pairs. These new boots are lined with what looks like cheap/artificial leather and the internal stitching is shoddy. When placed side-by-side with an old pair, it is obvious that these boots are nowhere near as well made.

After trying to break them in for weeks and finding them still uncomfortable, I've given up and will buy something else to replace them. It looks like Brasher have decided to increase profits by using cheaper materials and labour. This is the last pair I will ever buy from them.

Sadly its the same with many well known brands of walking shoe/boots these days. They're relying on their past reputations to sell. If you look closely at all the popular brands they're all manufactured in the back streets of Vietnam and other poor asian countries.

I now buy all my walking shoe/boots from outlets such as Lydl and Aldi. Its budget footwear only costing around £20 but I always get a years wear out of them before I throw them away and at a fifth of the cost of a technical boot they make good economic sense
