Have never seen these at full price, always "70% Off" at Sports Direct.

Bought a pair last year for £21and only wore them twice as I found them quite uncomfortable with no arch support. Of course YMMV...

nice find, same online price (including the delivery charge) on amazon


These aren't sent out by Amazon, but by Field and Trek or Sports Direct and as such have a £3.95 postage charge and not free postage.

Karrimor isn't what it used to be - I still have a Karrimor rucksack that I bought 35 years ago.

The Karrimor stuff nowadays tends to be cheap and nasty if you're serious about the outdoors.

I bought some of these as all my footwear comprises is trainers with poor grips. I specially got these because of the snow and ice we've had recently, and altho not perfect, they certainly have been a massive help in keeping me upright, rather than on my ass!

i got a pair of these in September and am now looking for a replacement pair which gives people an idea of the quality Karrimor thinks is acceptable these days :p

Beats me - my rucsac is only 23. As Karrimor went bust and the name was bought by SportsDirect I'm guessing I won't be able to claim on the lifetime guarantee if it falls to bits.

Had some size 10s bought for me, but seem larger than normal... Otherwise seem ok for now....

Well, my Tesco branded ones used to last me about 3 months continuous use before they split / separated from the sole, but as I was driving and walking everywhere in them I wasn't too fussed.
As for SD, well, got a pair of Umbro trainers there for work and were wonderful for the £12 I paid, so I suppose it just depends.

I have bought these trainers for the last few years, and even did the Nijmegen Vierdaagse in them (200km walk over 4 days).

However, I've just managed to cut my foot on the latest pair I bought! The interior plastic split at the back of the shoe, which then poked through the material and into my foot. I felt a few sharp stabbing pains while walking home and found I had a bit of foot missing!

ah that will explain the quality, i think this time round i will invest in a decent pair and hope they last longer (i hate new shoes lol )

Sports Direct own Field and Trek, they bought it a couple of years ago when it went bust. Sports Direct also own Karrimor, since it went bust a couple of years ago.

Hence why i said same online price, both Sports Direct and Field and Trek carry the same £3.95 postage charge.


My mistake :oops:
Read it as same price including delivery.

Karrimor
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A Karrimor hiking trainerKarrimor is a brand of outdoor and sports equipment and clothing. It was founded in 1946 by Charles and Mary Parsons with Grace Davies who hand-sewed cotton-duck cycle pannier bags from the upstairs of their Lancashire cycle shop.

Karrimor went on to build an international reputation for outdoor clothing, rucksacks and footwear.

The Clayton-le-Moors, Lancashire based company was bought in 1999 by South African leisure group Cullinan Holdings which immediately cut manufacturing with the loss of 80 jobs. It had previously been acquired by 21 Invest, part of the Italian Benetton empire, in 1996 for £7 million

The brand went into receivership in 2004. Within 24 hours it was bought out by Lonsdale Sports,[1] who broke up the company, selling the outlets and retaining only the rights to the name, which was licensed to such events as the Karrimor International Mountain Marathon.

Sports Direct, Lonsdale's parent company, now sell Karrimor branded products across all their UK stores.
