Teva says:"Whether it's a short day hike or a multiple day excursion up to the snow level, the Riva Leather Mid eVent will take good care of you."

Features to Note:

In-use Test:

The Teva Riva walking boot is a very attractive looking, relatively low cut, leather walking boot with an eVent breathable/waterproof membrane.

I've worn them on a number of thoroughly wet Autumn days walking on a variety of grassy, muddy and asphalt terrain.

A light-weight boot, I though the fit was relatively small - I needed a size larger than usual. Once on though, my feet were held comfortably around the heel and the lacing system enabled me to get a good fit at the front.

My feet were warm, dry and comfortable certainly whilst walking over grass and mud. However, on harder terrain I did not feel that the shock absorption was as good as I've experienced in other 3 season boots.

Buying Advice:

Whilst not suitable for mountain walking or for walking over rocky terrain, the Teva Riva's flexibility and light weight make them a good option for lower level walking (up to go4awalk.com Grade 4 or 5) particularly over softer terrain. Check the sizing.

• My Teva boots are just over a year old and are the old model. The boots are exceptionally comfortable to wear especially if you have broad feat. They are easy to lace up and adjust when that extra pair of socks are needed. They have been used irregulary over the last year, mainly at at holiday time and on weekend walks. The model has two supporting straps going under the sole, which certainly feels to give extra support over rough ground. However these are exposed and might cause concern if walking over sharp stony ground. My main concern though is the two part sole has delaminated. The inserted rubber tread seams to be bonded onto the base of the boot and it is here that it has come away on the heels and is delaminating around the edge of the main foot on both boots. With the warranty of year just run out replacing the boots is becoming problematic. Remember to keep that sales receipt. You will never know when it will come in handy. My 10 year old Hi-Tech boots are a bit battered and have come to the rescue!
