I Love To Go A Wandering...

Mondays get you down but its one of those days when you start to daydream about all the fantastic travels you can undertake when you have time spare. I love a jaunt in the countryside, among the hills and the trees, in the mud and in the sunshine, it keeps me fresh and happy. So wheres the boots to wear for such an occasion? Theres all sorts of dangers to look out for so one needs to be prepared. I'll be looking at a hiking boot today and one that has caught my attention is:



The Grisport Peaklander Hiking Boot


Made in Italy, this is a comfortable boot that will take a lot of punishment. The leather has plenty of give and they will not need much breaking in at all. Just pull them out if the box and head for the hills!  Technically speaking there is good cushioned ankle support and the sole has an excellent moulded arch, giving you plenty of podiatry. They are leather with a Spotex membrane lining to help your feet breathe, avoiding too much moisture. The track-on sole is quite the talking point though:


There is an excellent grip there, perfect for hiking and from a new manufacturer and giving us a good price that we normally saw from Vibram in the past. Its a good deep grip and resists twisting well providing the foundation for an excellent new boot at a reasonable price.

  2. Its around £50 for the boots but I don't want to post prices as they can vary depending on the retailer.

  3. In my opinion, being able to replace the sole is a HUGE bonus. I would love to see some with that feature.
