A Thousand Miles in, 20 April 2014

I have just purchased a new pair of boots. I didn't purchase a second pair of thee despite them being excellent.
I bought these in 2011 for the Coast2coast and they were like putting on slippers. Very comfortable straight from the box. I did around 500 miles in them prior to the C2C and then the walk. I had one small blister which wasn't bad as I was carrying close to 30kg on my back for 11 days. (My friend gave up on her 3rd day as she had no skin left on her heels) I felt comfortable at all times and still wear these boots if there is a lot of road walking. I still haven't found a pair which are as comforable to walk in. I have only one issue with them and this is why I have changed to a different boot. The grip is pretty shallow which is fine for general walking but I did find that wet rock and wet grass are an enemy and I don't feel there is enough traction and grip..
I also find that you can feel rocks through the boot if walking on stony terrain. Apart from this issue, they are the best boots I have ever owned and certainly so comfortable you can run in them.
This is a quality 3 season boot and I have read elsewhere about waterproofing issues. I can honestly say that these boots have never let me down. I have walked in some pretty rough weather, across streams and through bogs and my feet have always remained dry. I would recommend these as a good first boot for those who don't wear boots and if cared for properly, will never let you down. With a better and deeper tread, I would definately have bought these again.
I have a medium width foot but narrow heels so the heel fit is the most important to me.

I bought a pair of these boots in January of 2013 from my local store. I have to admit I am a fair weather walker and haven’t tested these boots in all conditions until last weekend 23/03/2014.
I have read many reviews about people’s boots leaking after walking in rain for 30 minutes and was worried however, having walked for 19km this boot stood up to the test (to my delight).
With a dusting of snow on both Friday and Saturday night we walked from Catbells round to Robinson in a horseshoe. After the ascent up to Catbells the snow was there for all to see and walking in this for 6 hours proved to me these boots are fit for purpose and do not leak.
I’ve had these for 15 months and haven’t treated the boots either which is why I have given them 5 stars.

I mainly use these when I go trekking and backpacking usually covering 10-12 miles a day across rough ground. Brilliant ankle support (my right ankle often used to hurt after long walks in cheaper boots) and have been fully waterproof for about a year and a half now. The only time my feet have gotten wet is when I forgot to pack my gaiters walking around bleaklow in the rain.
