I bought these last year, still going strong. Just done a 7km walk in them through a lot of mud!

Saloman GTX boots. Like wearing slippers straight out of the box.

I like the Keen brand and have always found them very long lasting

Timberland. They're pale blue and pretty and feel like I'm walking on air.

I once had a pale blue pair of Timberlands, they were so sweet 💗

I ordered these: amazon.co.uk/dp/B076ZVG7L4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_E7sSFbG3T1WAY?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1]]

I can throughly recommend them! I am sat here with a small break in my ankle after taking a hard fall last week when walking in these.

I don't doubt for a minute that if I hadn't had them the break would have been a lot worse. They offered enough support for me to walk the 2 miles back, albeit slowly.

The reviews are great, hence me trying them. I've had loads of different boots from £50 fabric ones up to £200 leather ones. I've done miles in these, mostly mountain, and tge took no breaking in or anything, just dubbin to waterproof. Worth a look maybe.

It’s best to try them on if possible, to avoid making a costly mistake.
I have a pair of Meindl boots, they were expensive but I can walk all day in them without any problems and they’ll probably last 10-15 years if I look after them, so price per wear is really low.

Another vote for scarpa here. Had some for my 30th and they lasted 12 years and I wore them often. Just bought another pair. Smile

I live in a pair of Hoggs of Fife leather boots - I work on farms in them, do the horses in them but with a bit of a wash they still scrub up well. They have moulded to my feet beautifully and are so comfy. Not the lightest of boots but really good quality at a decent price ( I get them trade discounted though!) I’ll go get the link....

Thanks again everyone, I ordered 10 different pairs and have settled on a pair of Keens.
It was quite a difficult decision!!Grin
