Features to Note:

In-use Test:

I've been using the Storm boots for a few weeks now, primarily for a variety of low level walking around Cheshire and the White Peak area, in UK late Spring. They've been comfortable right from the start. The fit is a little generous I think, which I've appreciated because I wear orthotics. Once fully laced, my feet (and especially my heels) have been held snugly in place.

The boots are high cut with relatively flexible soles. They have an Isogrip outer sole which has good, ca 5mm lugs. My feet have been comfortable after several hours walking along asphalt, grass, occasional cobbles and short stretches of rockier terrain. The traction has been good on these surfaces - though I've not really had an opportunity to test it on any particularly difficult inclines.

The upper is a synthetic fabric, with a liner and there is some stitching on the sides. I've been walking in NW England during Spring, so inevitably I've worn these boots in rain - often quite heavy - yet thus far my feet have remained warm and dry. There's a nice, solid toe box which proves some good protection at the front of the foot together with a decent rubber rand around the heel area.

The bellowed tongue and ankle 'cuffs' are both nicely padded. In fact, there is so much padding that I have found it a little awkward to finally tighten the laces at the top. Fortunately the locking 'eyelets' just below the ankle cuff help by securing the lower foot while this is going on!

It's a little early to draw any conclusions about the long term durability - but will report back when I have some more 'miles' on the clock!

Buying Advice:

Whilst probably not for high mountain walking or frequent trips over more challenging terrain when I would prefer a less flexible, stiffer soled boot, the Storm seem to be a very good value walking boot for low level walking during Spring/Autumn. Have not yet tried the boots during particularly warm weather.
