Merrell Moab Mid Gore-tex walking boots

Hi

light weight walkers - really comfy though I bought a size 8 / Euro 42  when I take 7 in trainers etc.

Comfy and lightweight but haven't tried them in the wet yet- zero precipitation here lately; Easy to drive in too :)

Bottoms of feet feel fine with no extra liners whereas my Brasher ( supalite sole?)  make my feet ache after about 3 miles;

    Hi

    update  on footwear;

    It appears that Berghaus have bought out Brasher which is handy as I just upgraded my old Brashers to a pair of Berghaus Expeditors as my heavy birding boots of choice and they were fabulously comfy around Spurn on tarmac and Norfolk muddy paths ; took long wet grass at Eldernell with no problems.

  • Hi-

    I'm back!

    The Berghaus boots were great around Shetland in the autumn- as were the muckboots

    Great to see you back S,   glad the boots stood up the the rigors of Shetland;    Muckboots (welly type) do look sturdy, have often thought about them for gardening purposes  !      btw,  any more drawings for us  ?  loved the xmas card you did.

    Hi Seymouraves, great to see you back with us.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    I used Brashers right back from when their original suede boots such a difference from the heavy clodhoppers we were used to back then. Nowadays most of my easy moorland walking is done in a decent pair of walking shoes.
