Features to Note:

In-use Test:

Scarpa's Cyclone GTX walking boots - a fabric version of their Terra model - is a reasonably light weight, attractive looking boot.

The cut is slightly higher, the sole a little stiffer plus a little more reinforcement at heel and toe than I've seen on other boots of the same weight. So I wasn't surprised that in use the overall support and protection provided was good for a relatively light boot such as this. My feet were also comfortable over slightly rockier ground - the Vibram Energy sole did its job well; the traction on the various mud/wet grass slopes I tried was also perfectly acceptable.

They were comfortable 'out of the box' - and remained so throughout the day. However I did think that they were a slightly narrower fit than many - so this is something to check.

A little early to comment on durability, but there is a high quality Vibram sole unit in place which bodes well.

Buying Advice:

Whilst you'll need a boot with a stiffer sole plus more toe/heel protection for higher level/mountain walking, Scarpa's Cyclone GTX are a good, entry level walking boot. They are best suited to lower level footpaths, fells, canal towpaths with perhaps infrequent forays over rockier terrain.
