Comfy from the box with a snug heel and plenty of room for toes. Very high ankle cuffs kept feet really stable and reassuringly protected on rough and rocky terrain. Quite heavy, but an excellent lacing system with a locking eyelet kept them feeling secure. The chunky, grippy sole provided excellent shock absorption.

Verdict: A tough, well-padded waterproof boot that’s well worth a try if you have wide feet. Excels on rough terrain, but won’t be out of place for gentler walks.
