XA Pro 3D

rated 3 of 5 stars I bought two pairs of these shoes, one Goretex and one not Goretex for a walking holiday at the end of April. They are perfect for me in size, comfort, and ease of use with a plus point of a really interesting range of colours to choose from. However I believe the Goretex ones have a big design fault! Whilst wearing them in, I have now found that as I am walking and the shoe bends, the front top lace holder rubs on the Goretex shoe and has rubbed a hole in the Goretex outer liner which now means… Full review

Super Mountain 9 Guide

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent boot. If you can get them they are worth it. I have used these boots in all conditions for the last 20 years and find them to be a very rugged boot. I am trying to find another pair as I have worn mine out. If anyone has a pair they are willing to part with in a size 11 or 12 let me know. Full review

X Ultra GTX Mid

rated 3 of 5 stars At best these boots are average. I own a pair of Jack Wolfskin mid boots that are much more comfortable. I have pretty much said it all in the pros and cons. These boots are nowhere near as comfortable as my Jack Wolfskin boots which cost around the same. Had I had known the problem with the ankle rub then I wouldn't have bought them. Once worn on a trek then you can't take them back.  Full review

X Ultra Mid 2 GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars Very comfortable, quite stable and light, but a bit thin underfoot protection. Not something you notice when walking light, but with heavy pack you will get sore feet. I bought these as my first pair of hiking boots, as I could get them at a very good price, considering the praise I'd read about. They fit very nicely and it only took me about a week of daily use to break them in. The comfort is simply fantastic. You will feel the ground you are walking on however, but unless you are packing heavy,… Full review

Super Mountain 9 Guide

rated 5 of 5 stars A superb ice climbing single boot for a day out on the ice. I have climbed in these boots for the past five years. They fit my feet perfectly but did take quite a bit of break in on the heels. They have held up incredibly well. Have added a Super Gaiter for added warm in the very cold White Mountains of NH.  These continue to be my go-to pure ice climbing boots. Not too bad to hike in (approach on snow to climbs) but not hiking boots. These boots are made for ice climbing. Super stiff with great… Full review
