Contour Lady Nevada 2009

The Contour Lady Nevada weighs 1076g (pair, size 5); Hydroban waterproof lining; superb price for quality of materials; stitch-free leather upper; excellent stiffness and support; aggressive sole unit; great cushioning and comfort. But for more cash you can get a slightly stiffer boot, such as the Contour New Navigator, which is better for rocky hill and mountain walking.

Verdict: Buy the Contour Lady Nevada if £80 is your budget and you want a superb boot for country and hill-walking.
