Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 March 2018
Bought this boot as a lightweight alternative to my heavy worn out meindl Borneo boots. I plan to walk the Pennine way this year with full pack and since the path is mainly patched or rocky I decided a forested lined boot would be waterproof enough for some boggy terai and rainy whether
The boots fit very well and are nice and comfortable especially for wide feet. There is plenty of arch support with the standard insoles.
I found, however, on descents, there is not enough lacing to hold you ankle in and my foot would slide forward.
Also during my training I walked about 60 miles with the boots on wet and muddy terrain including snow. The first few miles my feet were dry but after that every walk my feet would end up soaking wet. This would happen even if I avoided most of the wet areas with only occasionally submerging the boot up to the laces.
I believe that the gore tex lining is faulty and not waterproof as specified in the product description.
This may not be a problem with a the boots but is something to be aware of. I have read other reviews which have reported this issue. Otherwise the boot is very comfortable but I would not recommend for wet environments
