The padded tongue and luxurious soft lining make these feel like slippers from the box – and they only get better with wear. A slightly narrow shape, but excellent lacing gives a good stable fit. No waterproof lining means that dew or puddles eventually get in, but suede uppers keep a little out and breathability is excellent. Stunning grip on rock, but not quite so good on softer surfaces.A comfortable shoe that performs well as long as waterproofness isn’t a priority. Casual good looks, so won’t look out of place in the pub or high street either.
