Yeah I saw them but they're very limited on sizes available and I'm not keen on the colour.
Thanks - was looking for some of these for me and the missus.

Don't believe the RRP, these can be had for £20 ish all over the net. Also, IMHO, fabric boots leak, especially when walking through damp long grass. I am a big walker and can honestly say, you get what you pay for. Voted cold. Go leather and gore-tex.

danakajoel, could you recommend a pair for a beginner please? I was literally just speaking to a friend about taking up walking/hiking, so will be looking for a pair to last. Would you say this is a good one to get? wynsors.com/asp…tml

I would look at Timberlands if you have the money, they are top class.
thx Happi

Spot on mate mate.
What they said - don't be tricked into thinking these or the Karrimor brand will offer you any degree of quality. If you want a cheap brand for boots you could do a lot worse than looking at the Hi-Tek kit. I would say with Timberland you are paying for fashion as well.

Not great boots.

I bought them a while ago from a shop in town. The insides degraded very quickly, revealing quite stiff plastic material that really rubbed on my heel.

Wouldn't buy them again.
Have to agree that Regatta boots don't stay waterproof very long.
nice find..
Despite all the comments i have added heat and thanks for posting, I have purchased a pair for the wife and i, Not giving her the directions home though X)
Timberland proper hiking boots have nothing to do with fashion, have a look on amazon, i've had my brown ones for 5 years and they still look like new!
I got the black ones off ebay; pretty good actually
Brilliant! A pair ordered for less than £18.00 delivered - bargain
Thanks OP, ordered
Go through quidco for further 10% discount coupon QUIDFOOT10 plus possible 9% cashback. Heat added.
Edit didn't notice pedtucker mentioned Qudico already should add to first post.

So you can point us to a link where we can buy leather and Goretex boots for this sort of price? It's still a good deal whether you only buy the best, or not.
Try these walking shoes:

Hi-Tec Auckland WP

New Balance: MO1520GT

Brasher Diablo XCR - Nut

Merrell chameleon wrap slam Gore-Tex XCR - Teak

Some also consider 'New Balance MW927' as, perhaps, the best health walking shoes....


My partner has had a pair of these for over a year and she's found them to be the most comfortable boots she's ever had. She suffered blisters from all of the previous walking boots she's had but these have been faultless. In the last year we've walked over a 1000 miles according to our GPS, including Snowdon, Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike, and regardless of the weather they've coped with everything. My Salomon Quest boots cost nearly ten times what these do and she's every bit as happy with them. For this kind of money I'd bite their hand off. In fact, I'm going to get her a spare pair for Christmas I think. Thank you OP.
Ordered, should get me through the week of snow we get a year in London, so for £15 quid its a bargain

thanks Andy5and.
Decent price, but don't get very good reviews: Amazon link
Banned
Amazon reviews surround around dampness when out in wet which is bad. But I guess everyone might not have such issue so good price.

It seems to me that Ranulph Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes wouldn't buy a pair of these, but there again he would pay a lot more money for his kit. For the average joe that doesn't expect to get military-grade hiking boots for £16 these are great value. The reviews are kind of irrelevant at this price i'd say, just use them in the dry I would suggest.
Not bad, just ordered a pair... hopefully they're better than the Peter Storm's I ordered on offer!

hmm, a tough one. I can't talk for Karrimors as I've never owned a pair. I've owned Saloman £115 fabric boots that were gore-tex and they leaked. My partner owned High-Tec Gore-Tex fabric boots and hers leaked. I owned Brasher £125 boots and they failed after 10 months of extensive use. The only brand I've found to be completely water proof and long lasting are Meindl but you have to pay for those.
EDEN188

thanks Andy5and.



Quite agree, good recommendations. In terms of quality of boots and how good they are, I think it's generally accepted Meindl are best, then Scarpa followed by Brasher.
Heat added for the price.

I've had a similar pair of Regatta boots in the past though and while they were really, really comfortable (felt like wearing trainers), the edging seal bit around the sole started to come away in a couple of months allowing water to get in. Maybe I just had a dodgy pair or something though. Found them great before the seal split, very comfy for walking the dogs, etc
your paying 15 quid for a pair of walking boots. if you are a serious walker you arnt going to be looking at these anyway, so why all the fuss about for £99 you can get this brand or for £88 you can get this brand. all you need to say is if you think £15 for this pair of boots is a good deal. i do. i am a casual walker have had regatta before. they'll last you a season, maybe 2 and then bin them and go spend £15 quid on another pair. if your off on a 5-6 mile walk a couple of times a month when the weather is good then they are great. if your off up snowden then go spend the cash and get some proper walkers.

There is no fuss.If you like them ,buy them.Personally I think they are rubbish but each to there own.Referring to reply #6 EDEN188 was asking for advice on good boots and offered decent advice if this bothers you scroll down and move on.
Ok Scribbles I'll rephrase my post......

Decent price for a cheap pair of boots for casual use, but they don't get very good reviews.

A couple of the poor reviews are from people using them for what they're designed for, ie walking their dog etc. Complaints that the soles wear out quickly, start leaking. Still at less than £20, does anyone really expect anything else?

Anyone considering them for proper walking and marking them down as they are not up to task are really expecting a bit much for a pair of boots that sell for £20-30.

I wasn't having a go, just saying that those reviews are based on an Amazon price of £28 - £32. At that price, i'd probably expect a little more than the reviews suggest. But at £16.49 delivered, plus quidco at 9%, i'd be happy to just use them when the weather is dry
I have another pair of boots for the wet anyway. These are more about being a quite nice looking boot for not a lot of money than an all singing, all dancing pair of all-terrain hiking boots.
