Distinctive looking boots in blue nubuck the Mt Trek have a snug fit – you may need to go up a size to get the right fit – but the narrow heel and comfortable toe box will fit many women’s feet perfectly, and the soft, padded lining makes them feel immediately comfortable. Plus the pulley lacing system and locking eyelets make it easy to get a perfect fit. The midsole is stiff, but an easy rolling action seems to spur your feet forward, making them wonderful to walk in. They excelled in the mix of rocky and boggy terrain of the Welsh mountains. The chunky Vibram sole grips well on rock, while the well-spaced lugs make easy work of mud.
