Use: 3/4 Season
Break-in Period: Ages
Price Paid: £80
These boots are intended for 3/4 season use and will accept a strap on crampon. They have a Vibram sole which is pretty stiff and exceptionally grippy on almost any surface except slippery, wet mud.
Breaking in period is abominable and I spent a couple of hours just sitting down and working the leather around the heel area with my hands to try and get them to "soften up" a little bit. If I had not done this my heels were going to come off on my next walk.
Excellent waterproof qualities.
All in all, an excellent 3/4 season boot considering the price.
