Not made for serious walking
on 22 January 2012
These boots were bought as a present for my wife and according to her they were not made for serious walking. They are used everyday in all weathers, over many terrains and although they were waterproof to start with, they soon started to leak. But, in all fairness, a good clean and coating of Neatsfoot oil and they were fine again. The tongue could do with being attached all the way to the top of the boot, as this lets in water when crossing streams etc. The sole is also a little short on grip, in mud and in icy conditions.
On the plus side, they are the most comfortable boots ever had, with the perfect amount of padding around the ankle and a built in instep support.
Would I buy these boots for my wife again..........she says not!!!!
