Boreal Kamet

These fabric boots from Boreal are on the narrow side, making it hard to get a comfortable and stable fit. The ample padding gives a little with walking, but it’s still hard to lace them properly across the forefoot. Light, yet still reasonably supportive, these are real all-rounders with a tough upper, medium stiff midsole and a good lacing system. The high fabric content means they feel quite cool, making them a good choice for warmer weather.

Verdict: Dynamic all-rounders with a good medium-stiff midsole and plenty of protection and padding where needed. They are very narrow though, so check the sizes carefully before buying.
