Designed for the British female foot with an incredible choice of five different width fittings in each half-size. The Tetheras have been specifically designed to be used in the high Lakeland fells and the Munros of Scotland. They’re very stiff and feel rather unwieldy on low-level walks, and they don’t grip well on soft, steep ground as the contact patch at the toe is so small. They have a chunky Vibram sole which provides good shock absorption and grip on rock, and the high, soft ankle cuff will help prevent any sprained ankles. A Sympatex waterproof membrane helps keep water out although this plus the thick leather uppers makes them quite hot.
