Mammut Ridge High GTX (2014)

£160.00

The Ridge High GTX is described by Mammut as a boot for via ferrata and backpacking. At 1476g (pair, size 11) it is certainly light, which is useful on via ferrata routes and when scrambling. The upper is softer than many boots in its price range and the foot also feels closer to the ground, which overall gives this a ...

Scarpa Ranger GTX

£140.00

These are a classic walking boot, with as little stitching as possible to affect the leather’s natural water repellency. There are only a couple of stitched sections towards the rear of the boot, leaving the front clear of any weak spots. The leather itself feels nice and thick, giving plenty of support all over and good protection for feet. There ...

The Zamberlan Vioz Plus GT has a full-grain leather upper with minimal stitching; Gore-Tex waterproof lining; full rubber rand; incredibly stiff, supportive upper; stiff outsole; aggressive Vibram sole unit; incredibly durable boot for the toughest terrain.

Karrimor KSB Peak II Event

£80.00

Broad at the toe, yet narrow at the heel, the KSBs have a fairly distinctive fit. They’re reasonably well padded, feeling good from the word go, yet not too hot in milder conditions. The boots have a moderately stiff midsole, well-suited to all-round walking, and they’re reasonably light, so won’t feel clumsy on easier paths. An eVENT membrane provides the ...

Helly Hansen Trail Cutter

£50.00

This is a very lightweight trail-running shoe that offers unique performance. In particular you get a very breathable upper, but one that’s able to fend off the worst of the water. We also like the extra abrasion-resistant reinforcement around the lower sides and toe to protect the shoe in undergrowth or on scree. The shoe has a very low profile ...

Brasher Towa GTX

£90.00

A generous fit and the tricky lacing system makes it difficult to get a really snug fit. They are still comfortable, though, with excellent ankle support and nice soft cuffs. A stiff boot with a chunky rubber sole that gives good grip and shock absorption on rocky ground, and a Gore-Tex lining that is completely waterproof. A little heavy and ...

Merrell Perimeter GTX

£110.00

A 3-season boot with Gore-Tex waterproof lining. Low ankle cuff allows more freedom; stiff toe box with rubber rand; leather upper and double tongue for comfort and protection; excellent stiff sole with fairly aggressive outsole. However – the boot is a little heavy at 1660g (pair, size 11) given low cut; the outsole may clog a little easier than some ...

This lightweight multi-activity shoe from The North Face weighs 1088g (pair, size 11). It has a stylish suede leather upper with mesh, Gore-Tex waterproof lining and a supportive heel cup.

Brasher Supalite XCR

£100.00

A very lightweight 3-season boot weighing 1260g (pair, size 11). Gore-Tex XCR waterproof lining is more breathable than standard Gore-Tex. Rubber toe protector and reasonably stiff toe box for foot protection; very stiff sole is ideal for a variety of terrain. However, outsole lug pattern is relatively shallow and upper is not as durable as full leather.

Scarpa Infinity

£120.00

Well-placed padding make these feel superb when you first pull them on, but they’re quite narrow and difficult to lace tightly, resulting in painful toe banging on descent. A good medium-stiff midsole and nice high cuff should have made them very stable, but the fabric panel directly above the ankle bone is a little too soft and doesn’t offer the ...

Salomon XA Pro 3D XCR

£85.00

This trail-running shoe is a Gore-Tex-lined version of the well-established Salomon XA Pro, which means it is waterproof, unlike others which have mesh uppers instead. It is very lightweight too and it benefits from an easy-to-lock lacing system, which can be tucked away to keep stray knot loops from snagging on passing branches. The upper has lots of reinforcement at ...

Berghaus GR20 Leather GTX

£130.00

This is a good tough 3-4 season boot with a reasonably stiff leather upper which is virtually stitch-free except around the tongue, so it should be very durable. The upper is lightened in weight and price by a synthetic fabric tongue. Inside you get a Gore-Tex waterproof lining. Around the toe there is a tough rubber rand and the toe ...

La Sportiva Glacier Evo GTX

£170.00

With this 4-season boot, a one-piece leather upper provides the primary barrier against the mountain environment, so there is no stitching to fray and little chance of water getting in. You get a Gore-Tex waterproof lining to guarantee dry feet though and a rubber rand around the toe to guarantee durability. A solid toe box provides vital protection while the ...

Salomon Extend Low XCR

£80.00

These multi-activity shoes from Salomon are quite roomy, both in volume and width, which combined with substantial padding, makes them very comfortable from the off. The shock-absorbing footbed enhances the comfort. They’re warm in action, though, probably due to the fairly sparse use of fabric in the upper. A medium-stiff midsole makes them easy to walk in, but takes the ...
