Review: Great boots. Supportive. Only foot damage was to right medial malleolus due to very slight foot defect from parachute accident. Kept feet dry. Did not collapse when wet, unlike go faster gortex boots I've used. Good grip on rock. Now off to try them in Scotland which will be rather more of a test.
