These three-season boots from Grisoft are instantly comfortable, and can be worn on a big walk straight from the box, with no breaking in. The lacing system ensures your feet stay comfortably in place, and they have just the right amount of room across the toes. Quite soft boots which flex easily, in the right place, and provide a good amount of ankle support. The lacing system, which keeps your feet secure, is excellent, but the midsole is a little too flexible for comfort over rocky ground. However, the waterproof lining works well and the chunky sole grips well on most types of terrain.
Verdict: Despite being a unisex design, these boots offer a good fit and are very comfortable. A great price, but watch out for the leather uppers, which look pretty ragged after a few wears.
