Viking Rallar

These unisex three-season leather boots have a limited size range, but are comfortable from the off with just the right amount of room at the heel and across your toes. Plenty of support for most surfaces, with a nice amount of stiffness in the midsole, which keeps your feet stable and helps spur you forward. The mid-height ankle cuffs are soft yet supportive. Good shock absorption, too.

Verdict: A high performance, lightweight unisex Gore-Tex boot for under £100. Suitable for most surfaces with soft, yet efficient ankle support. Could do with smaller sizes for women though.
