Scarpa Manta 2009

£220.00

Last year the Scarpa Manta 4-season boot had the GSB crampon system, but sadly the system has not become popular enough to warrant its continuity, so on the Manta it is now a feature that can be logged as that great idea that got away! The remainder of the Manta is classic performance-orientated design though. The boot sits lower to ...

Zamberlan Mountain Lite HBS 2009

£180.00

The Zamberlan Mountain Lite HBS is a very traditional 3-4 season boot that incorporates the classic features that many more mature walkers will have tried, tested and decided are ideal for British hill-walking. It has a one-piece leather upper, which means it is likely to last a long time as there is nothing to fall apart. To make the boot ...

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 ...

Raichle 60 Degree

£170.00

This 4-season boot is well-padded throughout the inside  and a rubber rand around the whole boot adds protection on the outside that is ideal for mountaineering. I also like the higher ankle cuff that adds a touch more support for steeper terrain. The outsole is exceptionally aggressive which again is ideal for mountaineering and extensive winter use. On the foot ...

Scarpa New Manta

£165.00

Trail’s favourite 4-season boot for many years, last year this gained an articulated ankle cuff. In use this means the ankle cuff is so much more comfortable than before when walking. The ankle cuff is slightly lower than many winter boots to allow a more natural walking action. The rest of the boot is classic Manta with a one-piece leather ...

AKU Edge

£160.00

This is a great 4-season boot if you like a little more dexterity, lower weight and a more natural walking action. The boot benefits from a cleanly designed upper with a nice big rand to maintain durability on rock. The lacing also extends to the toe for a close precise fit. The ankle cuff is quite low and the sole ...
