Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 September 2018
Good all-round boot. I've now done quite a few multi-day walks (15-25 miles per day), in different weather conditions and in different terrains, and I don't think you'll do any better at this price point if you're looking for a decent pair of synthetic material boots but there are some niggles, so I'll start with the relative 'cons':

1. Only the last/top lace fixing is a metal hoop - I always tighten the boot, with heel to the very back, on the second to top fixing so that the foot is held firmly in place (particularly important when walking down hills/mountains). Obviously I can still do this but I'm not sure how much longevity the material hoop will have. Also, I have benefitted in the past from re-passing the laces through the second to last fixing, after the top fixing, before the final tie to add further stability. This isn't really practically possible with these boots.

2. It may have something to do with the US size conversion but, as others have said, the sizes are much smaller than stated - YOU NEED TO ORDER AT LEAST ONE SIZE LARGER THAN YOUR CASUAL SHOE SIZE - in fact, taking foot swell and the 'thumb length space' rule into account you may even need a size and a half larger. I'm a standard 10 for casual and 10.5 for sports/running and the 11 in these boots is just about OK even with thin socks.

The 'pros':

1. They are waterproof - I've spent many hours in wet conditions where the boot has been constantly exposed and my feet have always remained completely dry.

2. Very comfortable / wide fit - probably the most comfortable boot I've worn. I've always been surprised by how few walking boot makers make 'wide-fit' boots - my feet aren't that wide but I have to completely rule quite a number of boot makers (i.e. their entire range!) because they stick to a specific foot template which will rub and cause me blisters, especially at the toes. Why? I'm not an expert but who has feet that get narrower towards the toes?

3. Good grip - these are vibram soles which have some reputation for being useless/dangerous on wet rock; I have found that this isn't the case with these. The sole is also a very good compromise/mid-point between flexible (for general 'flat' walks) and inflexbile (rough surface/mountain walks).

I hope this helps.
