Karrimor Border Outdoor Shoes £15! (RRP £69.99); online AND in-store @ Sports Direct

Found 28th Feb 2009
Haven't seen this posted yet. Braved town on a Saturday, and saw loads of adverts for 'Karrimor Border' shoes - not sure if they're any good as the shop was too busy. Deal's online too, but more sizes in-store.

Hope this is good for someone! They seem more suited to hiking than just being used as trainers, but I might be wrong.

What's delivery like with these fellows? Cheap?

the soles on these are terible. the comfort padded layer has failed and now the sole has split on one of the shoes and i didnt use them very much.

False economy buying these.

use code HOTUKDEALSPOST for free delivery

oh btw they are not real Karrimor, mike ashley brought the licenses to mass produce them, so the quality will not be as good with "real" karrimor

yeer couldnt agree more -use to have these shoes and only lasted a few months

Bought these for the hubby to wear for work, he sits behind a desk all day, the only walking he does is 2 mins from the car to work and back and occasionally pop to the supermarket, they have split on the upper within 1 month of wearing. You definately get what you pay for with these.

Very poor quality, barely worth the £15, you'd be insane to pay £70!!!!!!!

Ok not exactly the same but I bought some Karrimor Dartmoor Shoes from an Amazon marketplace seller. They are quite well made but they absolutely cripple me, the instep is about 15-20mm too far forward. Maybe I just have odd feet and maybe these are different but but I would recommend making sure you try these on before buying.

Karrimor is a huge walking brand and you can not call this poor quality. go into a millets or a walking shop and karrimors sell for ove £50. SD,COM own the brand hence the low price.

Karrimor USED to be a decent company but the name was bought by Mike Ashley and the quality is now rubbish. Tried a pair of these on today and they are garbage! I am trying to replace some Salomon trail shoes and can't find anything of a good quality at a reasonable price - especially not these! The soles are horribly cheap and wouldn't last 5 minutes!

Have to agree with the posts about quality, they really are quite poor and the pair I had have split in several places.

I bought a different pair from TK Maxx which are waterproof and they have proved to be far more durable, so maybe genuine article rather than these cheap ones.

Might be that yours are Karrimor Border II shoes. I have a pair of these and they are fine. But Karrimor have a habit of making products with similar names but of different quality.
The Border II look very similar, but not quite the same.

out of stock for blue size 10,

I have bought similar before and would not Karrimor again. The sole is really thin you feel every little stone through them. Remember these are not the Karrimor of old - sports worlld bought the brand along with like many other brands and now trade tat on the previous good brand.

Just got a pair for £12 instore - hot!

Mine have just arrive...very poor fit, I order lots of shoes online and never had a problem with sizes, these are like wearing cement shoes...no give or padding whatsoever in the toe region...like wearing steel toe cap shoes...with the steel on the inside.

Thanks for the warnings everyone.

will keep hand in pocket.
