Features to Note:

In-use Test:

The KSB D30 Pioneer Walking Boots from Karrimor are described by the manufacturer as three season walking boots suitable for walking anywhere from dales in The Peak District and the Yorkshire Dales to the mid - high mountains of The Lake District and Scotland. We carried out our tests doing some dale walking in the White Peak area of the Peak District.

Comfortable straight out of the box, Karrimor appears to use a higher volume last so I could wear two pairs or thickish walking socks without the boots feeling too tight or pinching (I take a UK 10 and a half).

The padded ankle is nice and high offering plenty of support (but not so high that it rubbed); the collar and tongue are also well padded. My heels were held firmly in place and the chunky outsole, rear foot gel technology and Karrimor's D30 mid-layer material provided plenty of shock absorption on stony and rocky ground. The sole has a deep tread pattern which gave plenty of grip on rocks and mud alike.

Waterproofness and breathability is provided by an eVent lining which worked very well. There are perforations towards the heel for even more ventilation to the foot.

The upper area is a combination of leather and synthetic material which meant the boots were lightweight and comfortable, but with a strengthened toe box for added protection.

The lacing system incorporates locking lugs so I could tighten the lower part of the boot and lock it before tightening the boots around my ankles. This is commonly found on most top quality walking boots and worked very well.

Buying Advice:

The KSB D30 Pioneer Walking Boots from Karrimor are a a joy to wear. If you enjoy regular walking trips in the The Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Peak District, Snowdonia or The Brecon Beacons - then you'll not go far wrong with a pair of these.
