Light, comfortable, super dry!, 14 August 2014
By PhilipW (Milton Keynes)
I bought these 4 years ago and have probably only covered 100 miles or so in them, but that's been in a mixture of the Scottish Highlands (boggy ground included!), the Peak District, the Chiltern Hills, mud, streams, mountains etc etc.
The best way I can describe these is that they feel part of my feet. They are SO comfortable that I just don't wear any other shoes or boots anymore. The grips cope well with rocks in my experience, whether small pointy rocks or big crags. They add stability to my ankle and until recently, they had never let water in at all.
During our latest, recent outing to the Scottish Highlands, walking some of the Coulags pass in 6 hours of relentless rain, one boot was completely dry inside and that was even after stepping into a stream up to the ankle, accidentally of course! The right one did, for the first time, get a little damp inside and I've yet to find out why. They may just need re-proofing.
Anyway, they're great boots, very comfortable, very waterproof and I've had no problems with them falling apart at all.
Decent hiking boot, 13 August 2014
By QuinnDexter (Warrington)
I bought my pair of these 4 years ago, specifically to do the Llyn Peninsular coastal walk. These performed well, with a heavy pack and about 13 miles a day walking. 4 years later I'm still using them and haven't had any issues with leaks or tears in the fabric and I've done a hell of a lot of miles on them.
The only down point are the laces. They are too long and lacing them up is an art in itself. However I will continue to use them until they finally give up the ghost and will probably buy another pair.
PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!, 29 July 2014

Purchased a pair each for my husband and I and both had to be replaced under warranty due to holes appearing across the crease above the rand. My husbands have failed again less than 5 months later and I have upgraded to Mammut ladies. We wont entertain looking at the boots that have developed a fault again, knowing there is an obvious issue with this boot. Do your research and look at how many people have problems with holes and leaks within a very short time of owning them. Very very disappointed
Don't use for anything more taxing than walking on a path, 28 July 2014
By Nick (London)
If all your doing is walking along a dry path these are great boots, nice looking and comfortable. If like me they get a bit wet be very careful of the eyelets for the laces as they are very delicate and tend to snap making the boots useless. I'm about to take my second pair back and get something else. Both pairs lasted 2-3 months of light use before falling apart.

Upgraded to these after my last pair of solomans started leaking within warranty period. Yes very comfortable but after 3 years of intermittent use and regular cleaning and waterproofing with nik wax these also started leaking. No matter how good the fit these boots aren't worth bothering with if like me you value dry feet!
