Got two pairs when they were about £20 on Amazon a while ago
Terrible quality now, not as hardwearing as they used to be and not worth anywhere near this price
sadly a sports direct brand probably ok for occasional walks and slightly cheaper with them sportsdirect.com/kar…503

Agree do not buy karrimor as it's owned by sports direct. REALLY poor quality.
Ah yes, Sports Direct, the root of all evil. Brand politics aside they look reasonable for 30 quid waterproof boots

Yes sports direct is the devil's spawn. This company has 0 hour contracts and terrible customer service.

They're really not.
Voted cold due to the perceived poor quality
Good rating on amazon based on 784 reviews giving 4.5 out of 5 average review. Are they all wrong/made up then?!

Go ahead and buy some
I'm just trying to save people £31.50
These are £30-35 at a wide number of outdoor equipment retailers, M and M direct, OutdoorGear,GoOutdoors to name few, so the claimed RRP of £80 is ludicrous. The fact is you generally get what you pay for with this sort of footwear and in reality most serious walkers/hikers wouldn't look twice at these. Fine I suppose if you're on a tight budget and don't have too high expectations. Note the negative points on the review link, vital points I'd say

Looks like a pretty standard price on Amazon too, so I'm not sure what the deal is

Definitely not a deal, bought these for about £28 only a couple of weeks ago.

As for the quality, they seem absolutely fine for the money.
They're alright, very comfy fit but I payed £25 last year at sports direct clearance. So just normal price id say these were. You get what you pay for though.
Oh come oooooon people
This is like the argument in the sub £100 bike posts...
there are people out there only wish to spend or can only afford walking boots at price around this. Those suggesting karriomoor to be bad quality (not interested in the policy side of a company at all), can you please advise walking hiking boots for better quality for less than £40??????
Arrived this evening, got to love Amazon same day delivery! They look and feel good, very happy with them for the price as they'll be used for some occasional hillwalking. I'll make sure to spend £100+ on 'decent' boots for my next Everest climb
I'd personally avoid this brand.
I've got these paid about £30 a year ago, they are lightweight, warm, not walked through a lake to test if waterproof but I've been in rain and mud and my feet were kept dry. Threw em in washing machine to clean and came out fine.

Ignore people who haven't worn them
I owned pair of Karrimor shoes years ago and those were really good quality. Trusting the brand I bought another pair two or three years ago and those lasted only 6 months before starting to fall apart. Only then I found out that Sports Direct acquired the brand and outsourced all the production to China and other countries. I got them back to shop and as they couldn't repair them and exchange to new pair, I requested a refund but all I got was a voucher to the same value. AVOID Karrimor and other Sports Direct brands like Dunlop, Slazenger, Kangol, Donnay and Lonsdale , really bad quality.

Surprised they have Vibram soles, would assume at least the soles are good. Wouldn't have any faith in the rest of the boots though.
Bought makes owned by Sports Direct before and it hasn't been up to much.
