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 unit is definitely at its best on softer ground, where the lugs provide great traction; but it didn’t hold its own quite so well on rock, especially when wet. The ankle cuff is quite high but the leather’s soft and it’s well-padded too, so it feels incredibly comfortable. The lacing works well too, making it easy to get a secure fit, even with all that volume.
