My trusty Hi-Tec V-Lite boots have just about reached the end of the road having accompanied me for an amazing 1200 – 1300 miles of walking. I can’t praise them enough. Even 15 to 20 mile walks have left me blister free (should also put a shout out for Bridgedale socks) and uninjured feet.
I bought the Hi-Tec since they were a mid-price, well recommended boot. I was seriously torn between buying another identical pair (lower price, safe choice) or trading up and getting something more expensive (better performance, lighter, comfort factor unknown). I’ve had my eye on the Salomon Cosmic 4D GTX ever since Brian Blessed (the legend) raved about them on The Gadget Show. But wasn’t sure I could justify £150.
So, while reviewing reviews of boots I came across a recommendation for the Karrimor KSB Tour eVent II. I did a quick Google and as luck would have it found them for £40 (reduced from £129!!!!) at SportsDirect. So, I have a brand new pair of these heaidng my way in the post…
…and I’m way, way more excited than I probably should be.
