05 April 2017Use since 3 to 6 monthsThat review has been deposited on this product versionComfortable & Waterproof
So far, these are working out Ok. They are very comfortable - no bedding in was required. They are also waterproof. Soles are fairly stiff, but perhaps not quite enough for the market it's sold into, however at the price, they are good. Grip is fine, and I'm not seeing the issues one or two have mentioned with soles wearing out. Overall I can see the boot lasting long enough for the price, except for:-
My main gripe is the 3rd lace lug down from the top, it's not metal as in the picture but it's plastic! yes plastic. I never noticed this at first, and now they are quite well used. This worries me for the longevity every time I tighten the laces - I'm waiting for it to snap. If this lug proves long lasting then these will have been excellent.

After my Purchase I a 27 mile hike around the Breacon Beacons trail The boots are Fully waterproof very comfortable over rough terrain, one disadvantage the tied laces kept popping up so the knot of the laces was resting on the leg not the boot, two further good points good grip on scrag and in scree in the wet , and very easy to clean over all 7.5 out of 10, a great boot for the value stands up to the best of british weather 4 seasons in one day.

It felt comfortable as soon as I put it on, and it has been compfortable walking in it. It has excellent flexibility, good grip on the road, seems so far to be good in rainy weather. I find the extra tie pair at the top of the boot really useful and needed for my feet. There is no slipping or rubbing when I walk and I can drive in the boot as well.

I have very wide feet and have struggled to find a comfortable waterproof walking boot for the winter and these are great, minimal breaking in, good price and well made.
28 October 2016Use since 2 to 8 weeksThat review has been deposited on this product versionpurchase confirmedVery comfortable boots but the sole isn't up to itComfortable Significant wear to the soles in just 4 weeks use.
I had the equivalent pair of boots bought many years ago in France and have been delighted with them. When after 6 years or so hard work every summer in the alps the time came to replace them, I went for the same boot, well, its current equivalent. They were just as comfortable, but after 2 weeks walking in the alps this summer and two weeks in the Ardèche this month, the soles are already shewing serious signs of wear to the treads, which are much softer and less deep than my previous boot. Disappointed. I'm going to be lucky to get a year's use out of them.Brand's answer :

Nice boots, excellent system for lacing up and taking off, very comfy, waterproof up to a point, only real concern is the soles are wearing very quickly, so will just have to see how they go.
19 July 2016Use since 2 to 8 weeksThat review has been deposited on this product versionpurchase confirmedFor clarification 500 bootComfortable Not waterproof. Insoles slide.
Initially pleased with the purchase but after approximately 40 hours wear they are no longer waterproof and the insole slides towards the back of the boot and up the heel.
