Hanwag Ferrata Combi GTX 2008

£15.00

The weight of the Hanwag Ferrata Combi GTX is an immediate attraction as it’s the lightest 4-season boot here. The sole unit is very stiff, making it ideal for mountaineering and use with crampons, as well as via ferrata (as the name suggests). The toe profile also feels very dexterous and ideal for climbing on small footholds. The upper is ...

This sandal  has sizes from 2.5 women’s and up to 14 men’s; thermo-mouldable footbed (just put them in the oven for two minutes at 107 deg C and then put them on); well-cushioned .

£45.00

The Meindl Magic Junior Mid is a well-proven boot costing £5 more this year, but it retains all its great features. There is good stiffness in the sole and upper to protect the growing younger foot.

Helly Hansen Bekk

£50.00

This sandal’s synthetic materials are fast-drying; lip around toes protects feet; well-padded straps; Storm Grip sole offers good grip. But footbed is not well-profiled, so this sandal doesn’t allow such a natural walking action as some; other sandals have heel adjustment; sole is not as supportive as others and some offer more cushioning.
