General comments: My partner and myself both bought a pair of these boots (I bought the male version before any rumours start) from Cotswolds after an extensive investigation. We needed a pair of boots that would not rub around the ankles due to extensive scars around area but would offer the support for every type of terrain. This was the main priority in which most Raichle boots offer from what I have seen. We also wanted a pair of boots that would be suitable all year round, with the exception of heavy snow and these also fitted the bill. The boots are quite heavy but I think that is becuase of the heavy duty material they are made from. The sole is made by Vibram who make soles for work boots so knew they would meet all standards and last long. The grip on the sole is brilliant and can walk on most surfaces with confidence. The rubberised toe section is worth its weight in gold as I have a tendancy of not lifting my leg high enough and would scuff them without it. I am sure the rubberised toe also dampens the blow when you stub your toe against a rock as well. In terms of it's looks, I think they are very smart. They look like the traditional and stereotypical walking boot but have the latest technologies built in. The inner sole is very comfortable and has support where needed the most. I think the sizing is slightly out or my feet have shrunk. I purchased a cheap pair of insoles to add the padding and height and has stopped any rubbing what so ever. The first boots I have worn without accumulating blisters over a long walk.
Pros: Cost, comfort, look and build quality. They are also rugged as I used them for climbing the An Teulluch pinnacles and An Basteir summit.
Cons: A wee bit heavy for long distances
