Review: Brasher – My boots

Review: Brasher

As I write my Brasher boots have done 3 years:

  • Just Walk 2009
  • Mount Everest Basecamp
  • Just Walk 2010
  • Trailwalker 2010
  • All the related training
  • They are my ‘bike boots’
  • They have done two trips up the hill opposite my house in Hercegovina (more scramble than walk)

The only thing I have not tested them in is a total downpour but, for all else they have been very faithful friends. Snow, rain, sun and heat, altitude and cold and everything in between. I would estimate that they have done getting close to 1000km – I wonder if I need to start thinking about replacing them? They have started fraying ever so slightly on the right foot and in a place which would indicate that my right little toe is trying to make a bid for freedom.

They are very light, Gore-Tex and I bought them a size bigger than I would wear for a normal shoe. In retrospect I would probably go an extra half-size for those occasions when my feet decide they need to swell up.

I chose these boots mainly on the recommendation of my friendly neighborhood independent outdoor kit retailer Open Spaces, Brighton. I do my best to buy from them as often as possible; they have plenty of choice available and they know their stuff so you can always have a nice chat about blisters, swollen hands and kit in general. It is just a shame that they aren’t open on Sundays as, to be honest with you, that is the only day I ever seem to get into town!

Oh, and here is a picture of me sitting on that hill I mentioned; as you can see, it’s a bit rocky.
