Herbert boots
« on: 13:30:32, 26/11/18 »
I have been asked about gerlert tryfan boots. The person wants them for general walking around the streets not hiking. I know nothing about these boots as I only wear Merrell boots for hiking. Has anyone ever used these boots. Thanks in advance
you have 1 life live it

21 on eBay should tell you all you need to know. Likely to have a short life IMO whatever they're used for.

I have some Gelert boots (don't know if they're Herbert / Tryfan or whatever).  Anyway, they're leather.  They're waterproof.  They're grippy.  The only thing I would suggest is that your friend gets a size bigger than normal and adds a nice comfy, squishy insole as the ones supplied are fairly inadequate and you feel the floor (cold, lumps and bumps) fairly quickly.


I'd agree with fernman that, because they're so grippy, the soles won't last too long - would wear down quickly on pavement type surfaces.  The leather uppers on mine are still like new but the soles have worn noticeably after not really a lot of walking.



To be honest, for urban walking any old pair of boots would suffice.







No expense spared in pursuit of a bargain ;)
