Really good boots
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 January 2018
I’ve waited about a year since I bought these boots before writing a review (I liked to give the things I buy a bit of time to show their true colours!). I have worn these pretty much everyday, walking the dog, in all weather. I think they are very good indeed.
They have zips along the inside, which makes them very easy to put on and take off. The tongue is stitched in (I have never had wet feet) and when laced up, your feet (and ankles) feel nicely warm and protected. They also have a nice tread on the soles, which gives good extra grip on icy or slippery patches. I also found them very comfortable to wear, once softened up a bit through wearing a few times.
I tend to look after them by, every so often, giving them a wipe down with a damp rag, a good dose of black polish and also applying dubbin around the toe caps.
A year on, they are as good as new, in terms of performance.
Given you can easily pay two or three times this amount for boots (and for my sins, in the past, I have), I think these are a bit of a bargain.
I even went so far as to get a second pair to use when these ones eventually wear out. I bought them now rather than waiting because, as seems the case with pretty much everything else I like, they’ll probably soon stop making them!)
