Thank you for your feedback.
They have ben fantastic, very comfortable, true to fit, excellent durability and a lovely comfort spring to the soles.
Great boots, good value for money :-) and comfy from the get go.
Very good quality, and comfortable too; much, much better than comparably priced walking boots on the high street.

Dry feet are comfortable feet
Karrimor use waterproof, breathable membranes in its footwear to keep water from entering whilst allowing water vapour (sweat) to escape. Even while sitting still over eight hours, your feet will sweat the equivalent to one-quarter cup of water. Even during gentle exercise, this can be greatly increased. Wet feet blister, and feel cold and uncomfortable. The membranes Karrimor uses, allow water vapour to escape, leaving feet dry and comfortable.


Karrimor uses eVent. The premium market-performance leader in durably waterproof/ultra-breathable membranes. eVent is waterproof and over twice as breathable as its nearest competitor. eVent membranes let the sweat out.

Karrimor also uses an exclusive waterproof and breathable membrane in its footwear called Weathertite

FRAMEFLEX midsole technology
FRAMEFLEX midsole tecnologies provides three-dimensional support, rigidity, and flex throughout the natural cycle of movement in the walking and running gait. FRAMEFLEX are specific to every size in the range and for both men's and women's lasts. Why compromise? Different FRAMEFLEX technologies provide different levels of function and are utilised differently depending on the design and end use of the product.

FRAMEFLEX Original: Walking boots where three-season stiffness is required. Offers full three-season support for use in trekking products where users may be trekking for long periods.

FRAMEFLEX Lite: Walking boots and shoes where two- or three-season stiffness is required. Offers slightly lighter weight and overall more flex than Original FRAMEFLEX.

FRAMEFLEX Super: New lighter weight version of the Original, improved performance using more expensive, lighter-weight materials. Used in X-Lite products where performance is not compromised by an overall lighter weight.

FRAMEFLEX Quest: Multi-sport and low-cut shoes where two-season stiffness and flex is required. Specifically engineered to partner and enhance the Vibram Quest outsole, which was developed specifically for Karrimor.

FRAMEFLEX 3D Tenacity: Multi-sport and low-cut shoes where two-season stiffness and flex is required. Engineered as a separate phylon compound within the midsole to minimise weight, enhance cushioning, and aid support.

Fit and last shape
The Karrimor last is generally recognised as a higher-volume last; which means the fit feels wider – more akin to the British and European foot shape. Karrimor sells boots and shoes in full and half sizes to ensure a good fit. Karrimor recommends wearing your boots around the house to ensure they fit well before wearing them outside.

Outsole
Karrimor use durable outsoles that provide high levels of grip. Karrimor uses Vibram outsoles on all its models, which are widely recognised as the market leader in outdoor footwear outsoles. Vibram outsoles can be replaced when they do finally wear out. Many of the Vibram outsoles used are exclusive designs Karrimor has developed with Vibram – exclusive to Karrimor designs and last.

These boots have given me a whole new lease of life. I suffered for years with painful knees and weak ankles. After a podiatrist suggested getting good walking boots, my problems have reduced by 75%. They are not big or heavy I wear my boots daily, walking the dog up hill, down dale, through woods, over streams, to the beach or along the roadways. I have never had a blister, wet feet, slipped, fallen or "gone over on my ankle" as I used to. The support is super. Don't think they would go with an evening dress!

I bought these boots based on the reviews already posted. The only concern I had was whether they would fit my wide feet.I have also recently had foot surgery so my tootsies still need a bit of TLC! I am usually UK Size 7 or 7.5 I bought the 7 which looked VERY narrow when I took them out of the box but although they were a bit tight to start with on my "bad" foot they were not excessively so.I took out the insoles provided and substituted my own purpose made foot beds so that would have used a little extra space as well. I did not find they rubbed my ankles at all as one previous review had stated and I don't wear long socks with them, in fact I wear thin short socks because I suffer from hot feet. The boots felt light, supportive and comfortable. I like the way they open wide to allow ease of putting on which can be a bit of a pest with walking boots. I found the laces were long enough and did not need tying in a double knot to keep them secure(although too short for double knotting)I wear them on a daily basis, in all weathers, to walk my dog through wet fields and woods and they seem waterproof. I feel they still need a bit of breaking in but I think that's just my feet rather than the boots and for people with "normal" feet I am sure they would feel extremely comfortable from Day 1. I hope they will last for years although as walking boots go they were an excellent price.Delivery was good too - just a day later than promised which wasn't bad given the weather conditions in my area at the time.

I bought these to wear on a week-long conservation holiday in Glencoe during Summer. I've walked through wet grass, puddles, through streams, over moss bogs, on pebble-beds, through peat-bogs, up a mountain, over boulders, up steep rocky climbs...pretty much every conceivable scenario...they kept my feet dry throughout! Not only that, they're breathable and comfy too!

I'm size 6-6.5 and the 6 fitted me perfectly, even with a good thick pair of hiking socks on.

I have been using them to trudge through this deep snow we are currently experiencing, and still my feet remain dry and the excellent grip sole has prevented any slips or falls on the slippery parts.

Overall, an excellent boot for the price; provided you look after them, they will look after you.

Also- Karrimor boots come with a lifetime guarantee, so keep your receipt and register on their website.

I ordered these boots with money received from Christmas. They are superb -comfortable and watertight and have also been very useful in the snow with their non-slip soles. I am an oap so I think they will `see me out`. They are altogether very satisfactory and the price was very competitive as well. Thanks. Jean Parry.

I bought these mainly based on the reviews on Amazon and the great price they were on offer for. They arrived and fitted nicely. However, I made a massive mistake of wearing socks which were not higher than the boot and got badly cut by the boots. The inner lining at the top of the boot is plastic and because of this I got friction burns which were quite sore. It was my own fault as it was something I could do with my previous boots. Great fit otherwise and well made.

I normally buy men's boots as they are wider fittings which I need to accommodate a swollen big toe joint but after reading earlier reviews decided to risk buying these. I'm delighted with the width of them and find them very comfortable.

I ordered these boots during the recent snow snap. They arrived in good time for me to get some use out of them. I have recently taken them on a skiing holiday too and have performed really well. Overall, an excellent purchase at a great price.
