These boots are on Sale at present for £20 + Delivery (Supposedly down from £90). The same boots in Womens are £50 in the same sale. I suspect this is down to the very limited boot size!
Best price I can find elsewhere online is £80 on Livefortheoutdoors.com
I just ordered a pair in EU Size 47 which is UK Size 11.5/12. They have stock in Sizes 47 to 49 so looks like Sizes 11.5 -> 12.5/13
At £20 for a pair of leather walking boots you really can't go wrong so if your a bigfoot like me, get in there!
"A lightweight 3-season boot weighing 1608g (pair, size 11). Leather upper and waterproof lining. Available in mens up to size 50. Soft padded ankle cuff but solid toe box ideal for rocky ground. Very supportive heel cup; extremely aggressive Vibram sole; excellent stiffness for rocky ground; great price. However, minimal cushioning underfoot makes this a firm ride on hard or rocky ground, so best restricted to moorland, grass and mud.
Verdict: A lack of cushioning lets down an otherwise good boot, so best kept to hills and moors. "
