About as close to a boot as you are going to get in a shoe and pretty heavy. But it is extremely comfortable, courtesy of a generous fit and plenty of padding, and it’s also very supportive for a shoe; with a superb midsole that flexes front to back easily but holds steady laterally on rough ground. Waterproof leather and an eVENT lining keep water out and the sole grips well on softer, typical UK surfaces.
