These are really comfortable boots, with a good, deep tread. They have a nice, stable platform, which is easy to walk on. My only issue with them (which is why I have awarded the shoes 4 rather than 5 stars) is that one of the rivets around the laces has come loose after only a couple of weeks wear. It's not the end of the world, but has spoiled the look, and could mean that one of the lace holes rips before the rest of the shoes wear out.
The buckles at the top seem a bit of a strange thing to have, but they appear to be there to keep the laces tied. You need to tuck the laces under the buckles and do them up, otherwise the laces come undone. There is a loop on the tongue to ensure that it stays in place, which is a very useful design feature. There is a loop at the back to use to help pull the boots onto your feet.
I have size F feet, but think that the boots are wide enough to accommodate a G fitting, as there is still space down the sides of my feet.
The boots were very well packed, with polystyrene feet inside to keep them in shape.
I still want a pair in every colour, as they are incredibly comfortable. Great walking boots.
