The Q3 is a surprisingly tough little all-rounder that comes at a great price. It looks a little low in the ankle but this doesn’t really reflect in the performance and with careful lacing it’s possible to get a really secure fit that’ll provide plenty of support. It’s quite a heavy boot, courtesy of a pretty hefty upper, but the fit is quite precise meaning it doesn’t feel clumsy, even on easier going. The midsole is a good stiffness for all-round use and the Vibram outsole gripped well enough on mud and rock. The lambswool footbed provides a touch of luxury but one small complaint: with no real rand or bumper they do seem to scuff quite easily.
