To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
these boots are awesome. So comfortable and they look great. I got these for £14 on Amazon which is an absolute bargain. My first pair (which i now use for work) cost me £40 in a shop in Bluewater. But even at this price they are still great boots and worth the money. They look good with jeans, trousers and shorts, I am always in shorts as it is so hot at work and they look great with my shorts.
The only slight problem is that you can sometimes get some pretty massive stones stuck in the soles!! They have a massive tread pattern and the stones get stuck in between but they are easy to flick out!
I think the French foreign Legion use these boots and Palladium used to make aircraft tyres which can only be a good thing!
Only had my boots for 3 days but have to say I am very impressed. Very comfortable - and don't look bad at all - like a chunky Converse. Not sure how long they'll last as soles are sturdy but quite soft. So far I Like!
Just not sure about these...... I expect they probably cost about £8.50 to manufacture, and are put together in a strange way, perhaps like how shoes were made in the 1940's. But then again, that is what you are getting; a military shoe who's design hasn't every really changed since it was first thought up. For me, the stitching of the panels that make up the upper, inside the shoe on either side of your foot, is just annoying, and faces the wrong way, so every time you put your foot in, you pull up the stitching, and it sits there and bugs me on either side of your foot. There is a bit of solid something or other that reinforces the heel, but it finishes abrubtly at the base of your achilles, right where shoes tend to rub. It bugs me too. Lastly, they have had some fun with the sole, which really is grippy off road, in a bit of mud, or a grassy hillside. However, they probably didn't envisage their soldiers marching through Lidl, when it's been raining a bit, or through a typical English high street, when wet, with all different kinds of paving, greasy cobbles/ bricks etc. It's pretty scary. When I put them on I don't see Morgan Freeman coming out from behind a sunbeam, I just think it will be good in a year or so when they wear out and I can buy some proper shoes. Really though, if you have bought these, go to Lidl when it's been raining. Embrace the fear, and keep your weight over your toes......
