Great price,have some heat

Brasher are no longer trading, and their quality has been dreadful for some time. these boots in particular are well known for their useless heals and soles. they will be falling apart within 6 months.

when did they cease trading?

They have been sucked into Berghaus. Penland owns both.

Brasher hasn't made decent boots for quite some time now, they've been trading on their history.

Typo: Pentland!

Had a pair of these and they were comfortable but not very protective or supportive. Feet got pretty tired after 7 or 8 miles in them. Paid £50 from very on a deal on here which was about right.

Friend had a pair on the 3 peaks recently.
Wasn't happy with the grip.

The quality of a lot of boots have gone down hill. I got a pair of Merrell recently from Amazon, without Vibram soles. Ended up binning them because the grip was so poor. Very slippery on rocky paths in the wet. Its just not worth going cheap on a walking boot.

I have a pair that have served me well in all conditions. A v.good boot at this price

Not a great boot but ok for shorter walks up mountains where the terrain isn't too tricky because they don't offer much support. Not a bad price for a gore-tex boot and they should keep your feet dry!

It seems there are a lot of knowledgable folks around. If these are no good could you please recommend an alternative in ~£100 price range?

Yeah, I'd like to know too. I'm not buying them this year but will want a pair for next winter. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Scarpa only on my hoofs!!!

For sub £100, I love my Sportiva Trek Trangos. £95 from Amazon but were the same price in Snow and Rock where I bought them after trying on several different pairs. Good grip and supportive high ankle for uneven terrain. Done many trouble free miles in them. Reviewed then in Amazon a while back

So there is some hype about not being as good, mine have lasted years and maybe they had be made by older company but for £60 it makes these a HOT DEAL!!!

great price and quality....had a pair now for three years and still like new....heat added

Looks alot of boot for the money, Heat

they said that Brasher haven't made good boots for years, you said you have had yours for years ... think about it

I prefer the Berghaus Explorer Trek and Explorer Ridge boots. Sure, they don't have a Vibram sole, but ive never experienced an issue with the Berghaus sole, and they fit like a glove. Plenty of support, and no aching feet

If you are a "casual" walker these are probably a very good deal.
I had a couple of pairs a few years ago and apart from being very harsh on the feet (they are not comfortable boots compared to something like Scarpas) they were OK.

I have been using various boots for almost two decades from Meindl to German Army para boots. For British countryside these brasher kick ass. If you are considering buying these, go for it. Don't worry about the doomsayers.

Meindl, Zamberlan, Asolo, Hanwag, Lowa Salewa and the more expensive Scarpa. All depends on foot width. Keen and Salomon worth a look for lighter weight boots.

Just had a look at these instore.Non vibram sole and look very poor construction between sole and main boot.
No way these should ever be a £120 boot,wouldnt purchase for £60.

i'm not an expert but did some research, came up with these:

outdoorgb.com/p/z…96/?SelectedItem=501967

i'm still undecided but they are cheaper than everywhere else atm.

Nice boots, Zamberlan tend to be at the narrower end, trouble is there are no hard and fast rules, need to try them.

Again seems to be a few clued up walkers so assistance please. Inexperienced climbing Kili in October. Any recommendations as I don't want to over spend as may not use much after unless I get the bug! Cheers

A 3 season boot, reasonably rigid sole, should be able to find sonething decent for £75 - £100.

Do you have really long toes like fingers and big toes like a thumb?

Are these shoes for monkeys?

These look the business. I will come back to these. Thanks everyone.

Bought a pair of these Brashers in early 2012 to do 3 Yorkshire peaks . Broke in the boots on short but challenging treks around Yorkshire .on the day of the event it rained heavy all day the boots never slipped or let in any water .In august i did the K2 base camp trek in northern Pakistan . I was advised to take spare boots as the trek is a known boot breaker . well these boots did me proud , no wet feet no blisters and only slight slip when walking on glacial ice .boots are a bit worn now but still perfectly intact and waterproof ..I think they are better for people with smaller feet i am a size 7 .

They do look nice at over "twice" the price, but I'm a Brasher fan or was
