Re: Walking Boots


Hi Seoniad

I currently have a pair they are really comfy, have vibram soles and cost me just 40. They have been comfy from day one, which I find a rarity in such boots. They are not a fancy brand and I have not been 'serious' walking (mountains etc) in them, but I have had them on for 13 hrs at work before and they are the height of comfort.

This is them in brown, I have them in black:

Re: Walking Boots


Try www.fifecountry.co.uk for a good range of boots including shepherds boots (great if you do a lot of hill walking). I have completely wrecked a pair of Durbarry boots in about 2 years of dog walking and have just changed to Musto that seem much sturdier.

Re: Walking Boots


Hello!

Have you considered Meindls!? It's what most keepers I know have.

I have these http://blacks.co.uk/product/080978.html currently, for beating and going on long walks with the dogs. They didn't rub, and the only time I got wet feet was when I walked througha burn that was taller than the boot!

The taller version is called Dovre Extreme GTX, and come in 5-13, not sure how much they cost though. OH had a pair, and has had them 2 year I think, they have started to leak, but this is because he spent of last year riding round on a quad bike and the heat from the engine melted them a bit!

No one that I know ever moans they are uncomfortable and the keepers that work with my OH didn't 'break' their boots in before a shoot day, they just wore them out!

Hope it helps your search a bit!

x

Re: Walking Boots


My Meindl's are worn out now, so I am looking for a new pair and my friend has just been up to visit and was wearing these ...

They look great, but are blooming expensive!

Re: Walking Boots


I have Ariats.

They are mostly a horsey make, but I live in my Glaciers. I wear them all year round and do everything in them, from riding the horses, walking the dogs to shopping in them.

They are expensive, but they are worth every penny. The bromonts short are similar to the glaciers.

I really like the Berghaus Boots (Explorer or Trek).
