I checked these out. My concerns were that although the leather is excellent it's very soft and I could see them getting smashed up pretty quickly on any light to moderate walk in the countryside. Also, they don't offer, and I wouldn't expect them to offer, the same degree of support as a pair of walking boots. This may or may not be a problem depending on what you're going to use them for. Finally, they didn't fit all that well (they only make them in an E width), so there's a risk of blisters and/or foot stress on long walks. This all adds up to posh dress boots, not practical field boots.

I would be interested to know how other people have found the boots.

No they are not practical field boots, they are rugged and can be worn for the odd country walk.

Think of them as a sport 4x4, some off road skills but not a proper Landrover.
