Peter Storm Malvern Ultra

£50.00

These boots from Peter Storm are roomy at the heel and wide across the foot, but narrow at the toe. They were also too long. The ankle cuffs are well padded but a little low. They could offer more support, but perform well enough for low-level walks, with good rubber bumpers at the toe and heel and Vibram soles, which ...

Merrell Moab Ventilator

£55.00

This multi-activity shoe features a very breathable mesh upper; rubber and suede leather reinforcement; very supportive heel; excellent cushioning; typical great Merrell comfort; aggressive lug pattern on Vibram sole. But sole flex is little squishy, so not ideal for rocky paths; toe box could be a little stiffer; mesh upper extends low down so water will get in easily.

Keen Newport

£70.00

This Keen sandal has shaken up the shoe market since it appeared in 2006 with its unique enclosed toe, where the sole unit moulding is extended around the toe to provide extra protection where it’s needed. The idea has now been copied by many other brands of course. The upper allows your feet plenty of airflow, while offering good protection ...

Karrimor KSB Peak Event

£70.00

A 3-season boot that features eVent waterproof lining; rubber toe bumper for extra durability; solid toe box for foot protection; Vibram sole unit; good stiffness and cushioning for rocky mountain paths; synthetic and suede upper keeps price down. But is not as durable as full leather; some boots have a more aggressive outsole lug pattern.

Brasher Calusa XCR

£80.00

This is a tougher multi-activity shoe than you might expect from Brasher, which is perhaps better known for producing ‘softer’ footwear. The Calusa XCR has a mesh and leather upper with a waterproof lining to provide good protection for the foot. But what sets it apart is the tougher-than-average toe box coupled with a very supportive upper that provides good ...

The Karrimor KSB Peak Event weighs 1400g (pair, size 11); stiff toe box provides lots of protection; Vibram outsole for good grip on a variety of terrain; good cushioning for hard surfaces; eVent waterproof lining. But very soft sole flex restricts performance to level paths; fabric upper not as durable as leather boots and those with less stitching; upper is ...

Salomon Elios XCR

£85.00

This multi-activity shoe features a Gore-Tex XCR waterproof lining; lots of suede on the upper for durability; solid toe box provides good protection; very supportive heel; very aggressive sole lug pattern is ideal for mud. But you can feel stones through the sole, which lets this otherwise excellent shoe down.

Trezeta Helvellyn

£100.00

Named after England’s third highest mountain, and they’re probably ideally suited to climbing its well-trodden rocky paths. The minimally stitched full-grain leather upper reduces the chances of them springing a leak. One notable exception to that is on the tongue bellows, where fabric has been used, probably to keep the price down. The use of speedlace hooks makes it much ...

Alt-Berg Fremington

£120.00

These three-season leather boots from Alt-Berg are available in various widths and volumes, as well as half sizes, so most people should be able to get a good fit. That said, the ‘wide’ section of the boot can still feel too far forward for your feet. With a medium-stiff midsole and reasonably high, supportive, full-grain leather upper, the Fremington makes ...

Salomon Revo SCS GTX

£125.00

A 3-season boot that features a stitchless construction so durability should be very good; Gore-Tex waterproof lining; solid toe box; very aggressive Contagrip sole lug pattern; good underfoot cushioning due to PU heel section; rubber toe bumper for extra durability; women’s  sizes up to 10.5. But very flexible sole lets down an otherwise promising mountain boot.

Asolo Powermatic 500 GV

£150.00

This 3-4 season boot is designed for the British market and based around a simple one-piece upper with a waterproof lining and good sole unit. You get a rubber rand for added protection around the toe too. The lacing extends further down the toes than some for a more precise fit. The ankle support is ideal for tough terrain, yet ...

ASOLO POWERMATIC

£160.00

Review: A full-leather boot with a warm and supportive 2.6-2.8mm upper and a Gore-Tex membrane for waterproofness. Fitwise, it’s slightly broader than average and although the leather upper felt a little uncompromising on first wear, it quickly softened to feel wonderful. It features a good rand so didn’t look too battered after a few rocky outings, and the toe and ...

North Ridge Tower Event 2011

£180.00

The North Ridge Tower Event weighs 1704g (pair, size 11); full-grain leather upper; eVent waterproof lining; rubber rand around toe; Vibram sole unit with extremely deep lug pattern for grip and durability; good stiffness in sole unit. But upper is quite soft and unsupportive compared to sole; at this price there are some slightly better boots.

Meindl Burma Pro MFS 2011

£180.00

The Meindl Burma Pro MFS features nubuck leather; Gore-Tex waterproof lining; memory foam; rubber rand for durability; excellent sole unit for general hill-walking; proven performance and frequent Trail’s  ‘Best in Test’ winner. But its weight of 1948g (pair, size 11) is just too heavy by modern standards; the price is too high compared with other options that provide most of ...
