Salomon X-Ultra 2 Shoe

A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by a local outdoor shop (www.outdoorlook.co.uk in Macclesfield) with a view to reviewing an item from their website. I was in need of some new trail shoes as I’d worn out my previous Salomon shoes and fortunately Outdoor Look have an excellent...

Brasher Boots Ate My Socks

I posted a few weeks ago about my terminal disappointment with my Salomon Comet 3D GTX boots (click here to catch up). Basically, I was fed up of wet feet, despite the boots being lovely and comfortable, their waterproofness was seriously flawed and although the Salomon warranty allowed me to...

Goodbye Salomon, Hello Brasher!

I’ve had a real love-hate relationship with Salomon over the last few years – we’re talking boots here. I also have Salomon trail shoes and I love them unequivocally! But the boots I’ve had from Salomon have been a different matter. I love their weight and their comfort. They are...

Review: Salomon Comet 3D GTX #2

I’ve had the Salomon Comet 3D GTX boots for about a year now and I thought it about time they had an “Update Review”. I’ve just returned these to Go Outdoors and asked them to return them to Salomon for a warranty refund/replacement. The two year warranty on the boots...

Review: Hi-Tec Ottawa Waterproof Boots

I reviewed these boots on the request of Go Outdoors, my favourite walking equipment emporium and despite my usual avarice for any new walking equipment I almost turned them down. I’ve had an awful time with Hi-Tec boots in the past. Although they are generally quite cheap I haven’t been...

New Boots.. Again!

I seem to have written about new boots several times (and several times too many) over the past two or three years and here I am again, publishing the fact that I have another pair of new boots. Rather than testing these for anyone, and writing up a review, I...

Failed! Salomon Mission GTX Boots

I’m beginning to despair of ever finding a pair of reliable, long-lasting, lightweight boots for the hills. The list of boots I’ve had in the last three or four years seems to be endless and none of them have been completely satisfactory for more than a few short months. Maybe...

Review: Inov-8 Roclite 390GTX #3 (Final)

This is the third and final review of my Inov-8 Roclite 390 GTX boots – I know its the final review because they’ve just about fallen to pieces – they are completely unusable as walking boots. You can read the first two reviews here: Review One and here: Review Two....

Review: Hi-Tec Natal Mid (Waterproof)

I received another pair of boots from Fitness Footwear this week and interestingly I was sent a pair of boots I would never normally choose. Hi-Tec have something of a reputation for producing cheap and cheerful walking boots and after having used a pair of their boots about three years...

Review: Salomon Exit Aero

These are another pair of shoes/boots sent to me for review as part of the “Reviews for Shoes” program at Fitness Footwear. I thought it worth mentioning that up front as it were. I did tell the guys looking after the process that I wouldn’t give a good review just...
