Contour Nevada 2010

The Contour Nevada weighs 1076g (pair, size 11); Hydroban waterproof lining; superb price for quality of materials; minimal stitching on leather upper; excellent stiffness and support; aggressive sole unit; great cushioning and comfort. But for more cash you can get a slightly stiffer boot (eg Contour New Navigator), which is better for rocky hill and mountain walking.

The Contour Nevada is ideal if £90 is your budget and you want a superb boot for country and hill-walking.
