Brasher Hillwalker II GTX (2013)

£120.00

Designed as a great-value option while maintaining the Brasher heritage of being light and comfortable, the Hillwalker II stands apart from many boots in its price range by having a leather upper with minimal stitching, which should improve durability. There’s also a fabric tongue while a Gore-Tex lining ensures dry feet. The toe box is well stiffened, a great feature ...

Brasher Tour GTX (2013)

£120.00

A chunky, good-looking walking shoe with a good suede/mesh upper that offers plenty of support. But the midsole is a little too soft for really rough going: twisting and flexing a fair bit on scree or rocky paths. The fit is typical Brasher – quite wide and voluminous – and it has plenty of padding so feels comfortable from the ...

First test: Brasher Supalite Activ GTX (2013)

£130.00

I’ve been wearing the all-leather Brasher Supalite II GTX virtually every day for the last few years, and for a lightweight boot it’s one the best on offer in my experience. However there are lighter models out there, and the new Brasher Supalite Activ GTX is a direct competitor to those lighter alternatives. What I want to know is, does ...

Brasher Fellmaster GTX (2012)

£110.00

The Fellmaster looks pretty rugged but in reality it’s quite a soft boot with loads of flex over the toes and a very boxy, roomy fit. The nubuck uppers are lovely and these combine well with a Gore-Tex lining to ensure feet stay warm and dry. They’ve got a decent toe bumper so should stay looking good. The Brasher sole ...

Brasher Altai GTX (2012)

£145.00

Sturdy boots are something you expect from Brasher, and the Altai GTX is no exception. Offering a reinforced heel, a Gore-Tex lining and a pronounced heel breast to help grip on descents, this model keeps feet well-protected. The lugs on the outsole are well-spaced, deep and aggressive to give good performance on mud. Underfoot the sole is a good balance ...

Brasher Kuga GTX (2012)

£100.00

Brasher’s walking boot pedigree shines through in the Kuga, which is definitely made for the hills. It has a reasonably stiff midsole that makes light work of even the roughest of trails; and the toe and heel are well-reinforced and quite comforting on scree and sharp rock. The three-part all-terrain sole grips well on most surfaces, excelling on drier paths ...

Brasher Kiso (2012)

£110.00

A relative newcomer to the Brasher range, the Kiso is their lighter model built for warmer days. The soft suede-and-fabric upper construction definitely helps with breathability and keeps the weight down too. Coupled with the medium flex of the sole, these boots are easy to break-in and comfortable right from the box. The flex in the sole means the boots ...

Brasher Kenai GTX 2011

£100.00

When it comes to soles, striking a balance between bendy enough that you can feel what you’re doing and stiff enough that you’re not groaning at every bump and lump is key. With the Kenai GTX, Brasher seems to have found this balance. Though undeniably bendier than some other models on test, the Kenai (men’s version is the Kiso) does ...

Brasher Hillwalker

£105.00

The Hillwalkers have a fit well-suited to those with larger volume feet. The design is also classic walking boot, with lots of unstitched leather on the uppers. Shock absorption is great, with plenty of bounce in the sole which really helps when walking on stony ground and stretches of road. The grip from the sole is good enough and provides ...

Brasher Hurricane GTX

£95.00

A very comfortable shoe, with a good amount of lateral stiffness that copes well with uneven terrain. They’re more flexible across the toe than the some, though, so you won’t experience a lovely rolling action, making them less suitable for long walks on rough ground, even though the Brasher sole grips very well on rock. There’s plenty of mesh in ...

Brasher Supalite II GTX 2011

£135.00

In 1978 Chris Brasher, an Olympic gold medallist, designed the Brasher Boot, a walking boot with the comfort of a running shoe. In 2000 his original ideas once again emerged, this time with the Brasher Supalite, one of the lightest leather walking boots ever made. Today’s Supalite II GTX retains the performance, but now with a modern design twist. DesignMaking ...

Brasher Lithium GTX

£120.00

A true lightweight, spring-orientated boot with full-fabric upper construction that gives them straight-from-the-box comfort. In an effort to strengthen the upper, Brasher have used plastic ‘Tri-Fit’ reinforcing strips (the upside-down V shapes you can see in the photo). These do offer some strengthening although the upper fabric remains quite soft, and coupled with the wide mid-foot volume, it makes these ...

Brasher Mayan/Inca 2011

£65.00

The Brasher Mayan/Inca is a traditionally styled sandal with leather straps, which has not changed in design or price since last year. The straps have Velcro fastenings so they are easy to adjust, while comfort is enhanced with soft padding on the inside. The straps are wider than some others to offer a little more support and protection for the ...

Brasher Hurricane GTX 2011

£90.00

The Brasher Hurricane GTX is a good, robust shoe that has a slightly traditional look due to its brown colour but is making use of the latest materials. So the upper is primarily synthetic mesh, with a very tight knit to keep grit away from the Gore-Tex lining. Brown suede adds extra protection around the lower sides of the upper ...

Brasher Kiso/Kenai GTX 2011

The Brasher Kiso/Kenai GTX is a new fabric boot than comes in at a good price and a good weight while also offering a better performance than some of its similarly priced competitors. On first inspection it has the usual suede and fabric upper with a Gore-Tex waterproof lining inside. But there is also some reasonable support there in the ...

Brasher Antuco GTX 2010

£100.00

Brasher has a long association with lightweight comfort, and the Antuco GTX is a new product for 2010. It is designed as a classic nubuck hiking boot for hill and valley walking on well-defined paths and trails. It benefits from a little more stiffness than some to ensure that even rocky paths are comfortable. DesignThe Brasher Antuco GTX has  a ...

Brasher Supalite II GTX

£130.00

A light boot, as the Supalite name suggests, this is a classic low-level walking boot, with no real fancy bits to get in the way of performance. There’s hardly any stitching at all to risk leaking. A good degree of flex, and a lower ankle cuff mean you may not get as much support as you may require for more ...

Brasher Krypton GTX

£95.00

Excellent all-rounders, but the fit of the Krypton is not the best for stability or comfort. The sole unit is spot-on  with loads of lateral stiffness in the midsole yet plenty of flex at the toe where it’s needed, and the outsole gripped really well on a variety of surfaces. Plenty of shock absorption in the heel, too. And although ...

Brasher Supalite II GTX 2010

£130.00

The original Brasher Supalite showed that a durable leather boot need not be heavy, while the Supalite II is slightly better-looking and offers slightly better performance. The boot is based around a clean leather upper, which means you get maximum durability whatever the terrain as there is no stitching to fail. A waterproof lining ensures the feet remain dry, while ...

Brasher Argon 2010

£65.00

The weight and the price of the Brasher Argon lift it beyond the average multi-activity shoe. But more importantly there are some good performance features here too. Firstly the upper is reasonably durable thanks to the use of suede and double lines of stitching. It is not waterproof but it is very breathable and more water-resistant than some alternatives. The ...

Brasher Helium X CR

£85.00

Amazingly light, especially for a shoe with a waterproof lining. But overall they feel more like a running shoe than a multi-activity shoe. For walking, this will suit those that are prepared to sacrifice comfort and support to save weight, but they are just a bit too flimsy for the really tough stuff unless you have very strong feet and ...

Brasher Towa GTX

£110.00

The Towa is wide and roomy at the toe but quite narrow at the heel so it needs quite careful lacing to avoid toe-bang on descents. The tongue and ankle cuff are well padded and they feel great when you first pull them on. It’s a chunky, rugged boot, with excellent heel and toe protection and a quite rigid midsole ...

Brasher Helium XCR 2009

£85.00

The Brasher Helium XCR multi-activity shoe manages to tick a lot of boxes and so it is a true multi-activity shoe. Firstly it is relatively lightweight at just 856g (pair, size 11), making it ideal for stashing in a pack when looking for a shoe to travel with or wear around a campsite. But functionally it benefits from a waterproof ...

Brasher Towa GTX 2009

£110.00

There are a lot of great boots around the £110 mark, but the Brasher Towa GTX definitely demands a little extra attention. It offers far more performance-orientated functional features than many other boots, and that is its advantage. Firstly you get a Gore-Tex waterproof lining for dry feet. The upper is also protected at the toe by a huge rubber ...

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. ...
