Quality does come at a price
Give them a good polish if you want them to last
If you look after your Berghaus Hillwalker Boots by giving them a good polish, they will definitely outlive any cheaper brand. For me, being a frequent walker, I would say they have a shelf life of about two years, and for me that’s really good going. Firstly, I’m looking for quality, and these are made from leather. Secondly, the design has to look good – and these certainly do.
These boots are not heavy and clumpy
What’s an added bonus is that these boots are not too heavy and clumpy and they do what heavy boots do which is keep out the rain. The boot has a Gor-tex lining which prevents my foot from getting wet, even though the leather exterior soaks up the water like blotting paper.
Hillwalkers come with a deep tread and grip
Another good feature about these boots is the soles, which have a deep tread and grip. When I walk on wet grass or mud, they hold firm. The only downside is because the boots have closely spaced studs, they pick up mud and small stones, which can be hard work when cleaning.
Pick up a fast walking pace wearing these
There are alternative brands which are far more expensive, but the Hillwalkers do come into their own because they have designed a dip behind the heel which gives the boots extra support. That makes them really comfortable for walking. I just walked four miles and found it a lot faster than usual walking.
They keep the water out
I would strongly recommend them. They look stylish, keep out the water. What more could you ask for?
If you have a pair yourself, I would be interested in your comments.
