Zamberlan Monster GTX (2012)

£200.00

In the UK Zamberlan is best known for its tried and trusted range of fellwalking boots. Quality and comfort have been the company’s hallmark, so it was interesting to get hold of its first pair of scrambling boots over here to see how they shaped up. The minute you get the Zamberlan Monster GTXs out of the box it is ...

La Sportiva Trango Alp GTX 2012

£240.00

The clue is in the name, as the La Sportiva Trango Alp GTX is very much an Alpine-orientated boot. It has a neater and narrower profile than some other options we looked at, which makes it feel slightly better for climbing and mountaineering on a mix of snow, ice and rock. The boot is slightly lighter than others, which again ...

Alt-Berg Tethera 2011

£160.00

The Alt-Berg Tethera is very much a traditional hill-walking boot. The upper is built from one piece of leather, so there is no stitching to fray over time. Behind the upper is a Sympatex waterproof lining, so dry feet are virtually guaranteed even if you don’t treat the leather well. Further durability comes from the rubber rand, which extends around ...

Keen Whisper 2010

£60.00

The Keen Whisper is a good-looking sandal for women. The strap system has a drawcord design to tension the straps around the foot, and this worked very well to provide a comfortable, secure fit. But what is great about this sandal is that it offers a little more protection for the foot than an open-toe sandal, but equally water and ...

Brasher Supalite GTX 2009

£130.00

The Brasher Supalite GTX is probably the best lightweight boot on the market, in my view.  I’ve used it since it appeared many years ago. I prefer more supportive boots for hill-walking, but when I want to travel lighter, this is my first choice. It is very light but more importantly it is leather and has been proven to last. ...

Asolo PowerMatic 200 2009

£150.00

The Asolo PowerMatic 200 weighs 1864g (pair, size 11); Gore-Tex waterproof lining; triple-density PU sole for cushioning; low ride height for close-to-the-ground feel; great sole stiffness for rocky ground; virtually stitch-free leather upper; solid toe box, lots of support. But outsole is not quite as aggressive as similar-priced options.

Teva Open Toachi Leather 2009

£65.00

The Open Toachi Leather is similar to Teva’s excellent Wraptor series that has won these reviews in the past, in terms of its footbed. So you get that superb, easy walking action from the precurved sole, the excellent cushioning and the useful stiffness, which all makes the ride wonderful on every step. The outsole offers a good grip in mud ...

Zamberlan Ultra Lite GT 2009

£135.00

The Zamberlan Ultra Lite GT lives up to its name as a very light leather boot for maximum durability and support. The boot has an almost stitchless upper so this, along with a Gore-Tex lining means there is not a lot of opportunity for it to leak or fall apart with use, making it ideal for walking on rough hillsides. ...

Source Gobi

£55.00

A popular and comfortable sandal that’s unchanged for 2008. The synthetic straps are fast-drying, making it ideal for river crossing and backpacking. There’s also good neoprene padding behind these straps, which are welcome for the extra comfort they bring compared to non-lined straps of lower-priced options. Of particular interest is the unique ‘guaranteed for life’ Green Spot on the sole ...

Lafuma Lookas

£35.00

The Lookas is a stylish and practical sandal. The strap system offers a little extra protection than some others. There’s also a lip around the toe that helps keep out a little of the grit that can get under the toes when walking. The straps are leather and Velcro with good padding for extra comfort. Underneath the footbed is a ...

Scarpa Enigma XCR

£85.00

This multi-activity shoe came first in Trail tests in 2006. It is a durable shoe that is so typical of the products that come out of the Italian factory of Scarpa. It’s built to take the knocks and feels just ideal for scrambling. You get a relatively lightweight shoe with a primarily synthetic upper. Inside the upper there is a ...

La Sportiva Trango Trek Micro Evo GTX

£140.00

A 3-season boot that features a Gore-Tex waterproof lining; articulated ankle cuff for support while maintaining easy forward flex; rubber rand around toe and inside edge of outer; solid toe box; very aggressive Vibram sole; excellent stiffness for mountain terrain. But the very stiff sole means this is not ideal for general walking; boots with a simpler one-piece leather upper ...
