Fully waterproof, very supportive walking boots made with full grain Pittard's leather.

GORE-TEX® TechnologiesUpdated and refined from previous incarnations, Berghaus Explorer boots are bursting with high-performance materials and construction, and built with clever design touches that protect and comfort your feet while you trek.
  • The Enhanced Holding foam around the heel and ankle gives you the maximum hold, support and comfort
  • Berghaus' Hike-Specific Ortholite footbed: anti-odour, lightweight and breathable, it gives you long-lasting support and superior cushioning underfoot
  • The lightweight EVA midsole keeps you comfortable over uneven ground with its great shock absorption and effective cushioning
  • All sizes feature the trusted Explorer last
  • Integrated, engineered TPU PLANTAR PLATE provides torsional rigidity, but allows for natural forefoot flex - your foot is supported but not trapped
  • Berghaus' patented OPTI-STUD outsole technology gives you great grip in all directions in all conditions, its directional lugs giving you effective braking and shedding dirt as you go

The Berghaus Explorer Ridge Plus GTX is a 2-3 season walking boot, now with an upper made from Pittard's waterproof WR100X full grain British leather, coupled with a GORE-TEX Performance Comfort Footwear membrane (click the logo for more info).

Your feet are kept dry and comfortable, and any moisture vapour generated inside gets pushed away from your skin to avoid friction and discomfort.

Its simple, modern yet traditional looks hide the fact that it's a high performance boot, and will keep you comfortable and protected through the seasons.

Excellent boots, 20 November 2016
By Rutland Rover (Oakham)
Had these boots for a few months but waited till now to review after some seriously wet weather. Having had a pair of Berghaus Expeditor AQ ridge previously which leaked like a sieve from new I was apprehensive, but these are like chalk and cheese in comparison, my feet were 100% dry, even after walking through ankle deep streams and ditches. They have always been as comfortable as slippers straight from the box and the grip on slippery mountain sides is as good as anything else I've worn apart from football boots but they wouldn't be very comfortable on a 20 mile hike. Very pleased with my new boots and will buy another pair when these wear out, not too soon I hope

Fantastic Boots, 10 November 2016
By Bilbo (Scotland)
I have had a pair of these boots for over 12 months. I dont use them for dog walking like some of the other reviewers. I have instead put at least a couple of hundred miles on them in the Scottish Mountains in all weather and all terrains. I have waded through ankle deep streams and bog in them without any water ingress. The sole hasn't worn out any faster than other boots I have owned, and they are still waterproof. They needed very little breaking in and were comfortable straight from the box. Maybe I just got lucky and got a good pair or maybe its because I look after them properly. I honestly dont understand the poor reviews given on here. Great pair of boots and better than some of the more expensive ones I own.

Very poor quality sole, 01 June 2016
By Ian Keith (Manchester)
Owned both an older version and this newer version. Disappointed with both. Soles wore out on the new version within 6 months of mainly light dog walking. In addition they're so flat footed they left me crippled with heel pain. Fortunately now own a pair of Salomon and my feet are slowly recovering. If it was possible to give a boot a negative rating this would be it. Top marks for Go Outdoor in allowing an exchange.

disappointed, 20 May 2016
By frank verity (cheshire)
Have two pairs of these. Both leak. Not worth the money I paid. Used for fogwalking. They are comfortable but that is their Only saving grace. Cannot recommend this product

Big disappointment, 18 May 2016
By BigJim66 (Sheffield)
Look good and very comfy, don't let water in but the sole is awful not lasted 4 months of dog walking . Have resorted to using a pair of work boots half the cost and a sole good in all weathers after 6 months of wear still going strong . I will not be buying Berghaus footwear again . Shocking !
