Anatom are relatively new to the world of boot-making, and better known for their footbeds, but this is a noble effort at a midrange walking boot which has great heel hold and an even amount of space through the middle of the boot without being too cavernous at the front. It also comes with a lambswool footbed for added cushioning, although this can be removed (as in the test model).
In use the Q2 performs well in most conditions with a medium height cuff and a sole that isn’t too stiff. The price is fantastic for something like this, with good quality construction and materials. It’s a great all-rounder.
