    Thanks for sharing the link mylo

    I've a pair of hill shoes needing resoled and might even get a new pair of boots.


    Hi Pete,

    I have various pairs but none to fit you. I've a couple of pairs of Hoggs but they were never as good as my old Goudie boots [company ceased a few years back]. These Lennon boots look to be a lot better and are made to order.

    Toying with the idea of a pair of these hill boots. How do they compare with the traditional walking boot design (Scarpa/ Meindl etc) that I'm used to? Would be for Hind stalking on the west coast- am I going to bounce up the hill?

    They are heavier and need to be Broken in, remember there isn't a " waterproof liner" so they need cared for, ie leather needs to be treated.
    i swear by them but it's a very personal thing, much more comfortable to walk in imo

    They do seem a little hairshirt in the 21st Century but I'm not averse to things retro when given of a certain charm.

    The enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.
