After renouncing leather boots years ago, I finally got fed up of so called waterproof fabric linings - and 4 years ago went back to all leather boots - Meindl Borneo Pro. They are now worn out after the Tour de Mont Blanc, Alpine High Level Walkers Route the GR10 in the Pyrenees, two weeks in the Marina Baixa and Marina Alta and countless Snowdonia days - with no wet feet apart from overtopping, and not a blister or sore patch ever. Leather lining is the answer if you have sweaty feet.

So impressed by the Borneo that buying new boots is simple - just another pair of size 9s please! One point - remember they are leather, and need a bit of looking after - regular treatment with Nikwax...
