Brought these to replace a pair of Berghaus gortex walking shoes. Have had pairs of Berghaus, Raichle, Karrimor, etc but went for these. A poor choice. More a 7.5 (maybe even 7) than an 8 which normally wouldnt be a problem but within half a mile of the first tryout I had blisters on both heels as the construction at the back comes far too tightly into your achilies tendon. Swopped shoes with my walking partner who takes a 7 and guess what, within 2 miles she had blisters in exactly the same place(s) By that point too late to return!
They are nowhere near as strong as Berghaus and they feel flimsy albeit that the materials appear to be good.
Would love to say if they are waterproof but cant wear them for more than half mile still. More a fashion item than a serious walking shoe. Bought a pair of Karrimor Bodmins the next week. Wish I had bought 2 pairs of them now!
