Good comfortable shoes, let down by slippery soles
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 January 2020
These boots are very comfortable indeed! I ordered half a size larger than I would normally buy, based on advice of other reviews, and am glad I did. From the first use there has been no rubbing or blisters as has been the case with other walking shoes I have owned in the past.
However there are, in my opinion, two flaws with these shoes:
1. They are sold as being “waterproof”, but beware the tongue is not continuous with the lace holes, so water runs in around the laces giving you a wet foot.
2. More problematic though is the sole design. It does indeed have a good deep tread. BUT when walking along a wet pavement iris like walking on ice - the sole just seems to lack any sort of grip on wet paving, be it tarmac, concrete or paving slabs. Perhaps when I have walked a few more miles (they have probably covered about 200 so far) and the surface of the sole has worn a little, it will develop a better grip.
So in summary a great fitting and very comfortable shoe, let down by a couple of flaws, which if you buy intending to walk in the wet should be taken into consideration.
