Boots are awesome. I put them into use straight away and they feel super comfy and durable. Great boots. Thanks.
Decent shoe, well protected- could handle most walking/scrambling conditions. Comfort 7/10
These are my third hiking boots and they are astounding. Super comfortable, with great foot grip. Gore-tex does the thing, so they stay dry even after full day of hiking in rain or snow.
As a hiking boot, which is what they are described as, they are comfortable and reasonably robust. They are not however, a replacement for the old style Trango which was a mountaineering boot. They are not rigid enough for mountain walking. In conclusion, if you want a general purpose hicking boot, these will be fine, if you want a boot for mountain walking/scrambling, buy something a bit stiffer.
First time out in these boots was an ascent of Snowdon in early May. Warm at base but near freezing at top. Feet stayed comfortable throughout and boots were grippy and stable on all surfaces. No blisters or breaking in period. Boots were just as comfortable hiking round the Cotswolds.
