Karrimor KSB Peak Event 2009

The Karrimor KSB Peak Event weighs 1400g (pair, size 11); stiff toe box provides lots of protection; Vibram outsole for good grip on a variety of terrain; good cushioning for hard surfaces; eVent waterproof lining. But very soft sole flex restricts performance to level paths; fabric upper not as durable as leather boots and those with less stitching; upper is not as stiff and supportive as it looks.

Verdict: The Karrimor KSB Peak Event is a good boot for moorland walks,  but not ideal for rockier terrain.
