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.

Great boots, 09 January 2017
By Seedy (Lincolnshire)
Very pleased with the fit and feel of these boots. Fairly lightweight yet sturdy and supportive at the ankle. Perfectly waterproof yet dried out well overnight at room temperature and the leather remains supple. It's early days but I think an excellent buy at a reasonable price.

Fantastic boot that works all year round, 07 January 2017
By jaygonewild (Hereford)
I've owned a pair of these boots for the last year and a half. It's nice to finally own a boot that I have worn out instead of falling apart!

These are on my feet all day everyday and have been used from walking on pavements to hiking across mountains, through grass and streams and have never failed me yet.

Although now that I've worn them out (soles are now nearly flat) and some of the leather work is starting to come undone, it's time to buy another pair.

I haven't had wet feet yet!!

Great boots, 24 December 2016
By Nick (Edinburgh)
The one I had was the explorer ridge before this newer gtx version came out. I has the older version for 4 years, only currently use it for cycling as the rubber sole has completely wore off down to the sponge? layer. I wear it almost 90% of the time... roughly 900+days? Of all these 4 years, never have I had problem with it or have i even look after it. No waterproofing no wax nothing. I think the daily use and drying is the key to great shoe life. Don't leave shoe unused in wet or damp condition or stored for too long as the glue on the sole will come off (ever tried glueing stuff on wet rubber or leather?). The only thing I disagree with berghaus is the rubber sole. It is slippery when wet (walking on wet boulders) and slips easily on frosty asphalt. Hence the 3 stars. Even a cheap safety shoe has more grip than berghaus.

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
