Karrimor Aruba 2010

£30.00

The Karrimor Aruba costs a fiver less than last year, when it was already an excellent-value product, so now it is hard to beat on price.

Hi-Tec Altitude II

£30.00

These sandals from Hi-Tec are not as comfortable as some at first, but some tweaking soon ensures a good fit with plenty of support. The neoprene-lined straps feel very comfortable next to your skin, and the soft microfibre footbeds are great. Great to walk in, offering plenty of support and good traction.

Hi-Tec V-Lite Sirocco

£30.00

This sandal makes use of a synthetic upper which is fast-drying, so this would be ideal for river crossings and generally getting damp around a campsite. It does not have a conventional strap system: instead it has a drawcorded and elasticated panel that pulls the top of the foot into the heel. This is a very comfortable design that is ...

If you are on a budget, this kids’ walking boot is an excellent option at £35. It has a waterproof lining tucked away behind the upper, which is a mix of suede, rubber and various textiles.

This is a great sandal for water sports and general use. The straps are synthetic, so they are fast-drying. There are three Velcro strips to allow secure adjustment, and all the straps are lined with neoprene.

Karrimor Kiwi

£40.00

Karrimor keeps dipping in and out of the outdoor market as the backroom boys and girls find they have new owners every few years. However, it seems they are back for good this time with some niche product to tempt the old faithful and the fresher into the fold. The Karrimor Kiwi sandal does look striking similar to the classic ...

Hi-Tec V-Lite Diablo 2010

£40.00

The Hi-Tec V-Lite Diablo was a superb price last year and it has not had a price increase, so now it is even more remarkable value. It offers more protection than some thanks to a rubber toe box and stretch material over the top of the foot. This makes this a much better option for walking in the countryside than ...

Timberland Youth Eurohiker

£40.00

A full leather upper makes the Timberland Youth Eurohiker children’s boot durable if looked after. The ankle cuff is high enough to keep the worst of the water, mud and grit out, while the supportive heel and toe box are well suited to rougher terrain. The outsole is reasonably aggressive and stiff too, again ideal for rougher terrain. But there ...

Hi-Tec V-Lite Diablo 2009

£40.00

For me the Hi-Tec V-Lite Diablo was more comfortable than it looks. There’s a rubber toe box to provide protection and prevent toes creeping beyond the end of the sole. The upper is stretchy and so is the lacing system, so once cranked up it holds the foot comfortably in place while allowing movement. The result is that the foot ...

The North Face Mead 2009

£40.00

The The North Face Mead is a nice stiff sandal, so use it for river crossings and it is going to be ideal. Underfoot there is a reasonably aggressive pattern of lugs that are designed to channel water away, but also there are lugs to give traction on muddy grass, say when crossing a campsite. The footbed is antimicrobial, so ...

Trezeta Idaho Kid

£45.00

An Alpine style with a branded Vibram outsole and waterproof construction make the Trezeta Idaho Kid children’s boot look appealing. The lacing extends closer to the toes than others for a more precise fit, while the toe box and heel cup are reasonably supportive and offer protection for rocky ground.  But the very shallow lug pattern on the sole limits ...

Brasher Women’s Trekker

£45.00

These sandals from Brasher are really comfortable straight from the box, courtesy of neoprene-lined straps and cushioned suede footbeds. The straps hold your feet perfectly in place, and the two attachment points provide plenty of support. The soft leather straps, grippy rubber sole and protective raised toe bumper make these really good for walking. They cope well on uneven terrain.

At just £50 the Karrimor Whirlwind Weathertite offers an incredible set of features and a good performance to match.
