After years of a love affair with Zamberlan Vioz i got talked into a pair of Ribelle Lite. I had been after Vioz 1996 but after Brexit everything is scarce or just unavailable so I opted for a stiffer pair of boots for the Galloway hills where I do my walking these days. They are eye -wateringly expensive, as are all boots at the moment so it was a gamble. I spent a lot of time dog walking in them to break them in and then took them on a few big days on the hill. I put the discomfort down to being used to Vioz, which are like slippers, but after a two hour stiff downhill descent I found they had managed to wreck my right big toe. The laces they come with are woefully short so they needed replacing. £6 up the road. The insoles seem to be from a Christmas cracker so the only way I can try to rescue them is a pair of Superfeet insoles which will set me back another £30-40. That will take me past the £300 mark for a pair of boots I can't love. I realise there are Scarpa lovers out there who love the brand but I'm not converted. On ebay for these and no doubt I'll take a big hit
Extremely versatile boots which could cover most hill activities except maybe technical ice. Great comfort and snug support with a good forward flex but lots of lateral support too. Haven’t done really long days in them but I get the impression they’d be pretty forgiving. Resoleable too which makes them a great buy if the waterproof hd laminate last the test of time.
I’ve worn Zamberlan for years but fancied a change and who can resist bright orange boots! I haven’t given them a proper test yet but now I’m used to the stiffness I’m finding them comfortable and light. The laces are too short unless you like your boots so tight there’s no circulation. I’ve ordered some 1.8m laces which will help. Usually it’s the other way round with laces that need tucking away under gaiters. Very happy with Rock43,Run. Great service and I got my boots very quickly.
Looking for a new pair of boots that can offer hiking, in summer and winter intermixed with via ferratas and climbing.
From extensive internet reviews and research these were the boots that stood out for me the most. Literally in the colour too! Tracking down my size EU 47 has been a challenge but found them here.
These are incredibly comfy when you first put them on. I have green Superfeet too and there is no issue with changing the insoles. Other than the comfort, it is how lightweight they are - it surprised me.
Have yet to truly test them, but am off 'Munroing' in a couple of weeks where they will be put through their paces.
Extremely competitively priced and fast next day delivery. Thank you!
Wow what an amazing bit of kit. I was looking for a new pair of scrambling boots for a weekend in Snowdonia and had heard good things about these boots. I wore them without any breaking in and boy were they comfy, no rubbing or blisters at all. They are very light and stiff soled but have a great rocking motion when you walk and give good traction even in the sub zero conditions I experienced. I am a size 43 in trainers the size 43.5 are a perfect fit for me. Rock43,Run were very competitively priced with superb delivery. Very Happy👍
