The cost of these little brown boots makes them great value for money. There are no other full grain leather boots anywhere near this price. The finish is a little rough in places compared with more expensive boots but as far as I can tell this is cosmetic only. The features are typical for this type of boot – Vibram sole that grips well, lateral stiffness, good cushioning, secure lacing, foam padding in the ankle and tongue, waterproof/breathable membrane. The last two features probably mean the boots will be too warm in the summer, at least for me. The fit is just roomy enough for me at the forefoot and a touch too roomy at the ankle.
