“very poor quality”

Written on: 19/06/2019

I bought these boots thinking that the stitching included the entire sole. Wrong! the two layers of the sole are glued. Three days on the Pennine Way in wet weather had the layers parting company and my feet were sodden. This was the first time they had been given tough terrain… Read Full Review

Absolutely agree with this review. Do not buy Brasher CountryMaster Boots if you actually intend to use them for walking on the Hills in wet weather for more than a few very brief occasional annual trips. The cushion layer above the Vibram soles break down after no more than a couple of hundred miles of use. I had a pair replaced but the second pair have done exactly the same. Still arguing with the retailer who try to deny there is anything wrong with them. Very disappointing.

“Brasher boots manufacturing problems”

Written on: 04/05/2015 by 2367green (1 review written)

I have had two pairs of Brasher boots where the glue between the two layers of the sole have parted due to poor workmanship. Never purchase a walking boot which has layered soles. You are better off purchasing a Harkila boot - everything a Brasher is not.t… Read Full Review

“worst boots ever”

Written on: 08/03/2015 by EduardoBateman30 (1 review written)

Bought these boots thinking they would be better in the long run being more expensive than the boots I normally buy Hi-tec, how wrong was I? They are the most uncomfortable boots I have ever worn, and I include my steel toe cap working boots, unhelpful retailer says that they cant take them back for refund because I wore them outside? should have worn them around the house I was told? it wasn't slippers I wanted… Read Full Review

“Very Poor Quality”

Written on: 03/06/2014 by Hooulet (1 review written)

I received my third pair of Brasher Hillmaster GTX boots mid April 2013 and deposited them in a Spanish bin May 2014. In my opinion thirteen months for boots at this price is a complete rip off. My first two pairs of the Mark 1 were very good but the "improved" and Chinese built Mark 2 is not of the same quality. In both of the new boots the leather cracked and they were no longer waterproof, then the rubber and leather parted company on one. Need less to say their customer support trotted… Read Full Review

“Worst Boots I've ever owned!”

Written on: 22/03/2014 by Hunter302 (1 review written)

These boots are terrible, especially considering the price of them. The grip is appalling so leaves you with no confidence when walking in wet weather. The leather also ripped and tore very easily in rocky conditions. I would not recommend these to anyone… Read Full Review

“Brasher Hillmaster Walking Boots”

Written on: 18/01/2014

My boots are comfortable but certainly not suitable for fell walking. There is no grip on the soles and they are really dangerous on wet surfaces. OK if you just want to walk in the dry on the flat, but rather expensive when a pair of cheap trainers would do. I've since bought Hi-Tek V-Lite ion-mask boots with vibram soles. A superior boot and much cheaper… Read Full Review

“Great brand, now badly manufactured.”

Written on: 14/05/2013

I am returning the Brasher boots I recently got, despite the apparent comfort of the fit as on examination at home they are obviously seconds. Further investigation reveals that the boots nowadays are made in China. The extremely haphazard stitching internally, mismatched pieces of leather and wonky bulging tongue on one of the boots, plus areas where the bonding of sole and upper looks bumpy rather than smooth, all lead me to conclude that quality control is the problem. And they retailed… Read Full Review

“Probably my favourite pair of brasher yet!”

Written on: 04/04/2013

I have bought over time many brasher boots and shoes and I think honestly this is my absolute favourite pair yet. They are extremely comfortable and I often find it rather difficult to find boots that I am happy to do long distances in. The retailer I purchased from were extremely helpful and were able to help me decide on which pair of boots would suit me best. Having taken these through some hillwalking and general trekking I would have no problem in recommending people to pick up a pair… Read Full Review

“Contast pain in my knees”

Written on: 29/01/2013

I have previously owned a pair of Hillwalkers and a pair of Superlites and been completely satisfied. I then bought a pair of Hillmaster boots. I walked in them every weekend (and some weeks) for two years. After about three months I developed terrible and constant pain in my knees. Went to to doctor but they confirmed it was not arthritis. Towards the end of November I stopped walking and the pain went away. I then did one walk in my Hillmasters and the pain returned. I have contacted… Read Full Review

“Slippery hillmasters”

Written on: 23/10/2012

These boots must be the most dangerous boots I have ever worn. Extremely slippery on wet or damp rock and stone. Great once onto soft surfaces but until then be very careful. I have other boots including solomen without vibram soles and they are much more grippy… Read Full Review

“Not fit for purpose. Ripped to shreds in only a few weeks.”

Written on: 24/08/2012

This is an alert to anyone wanting to do any walking over rocky ground. I have found that the boot leather has torn easily and broken away where the boots have made contact with rocks. My boots are ripped to shreds already and I have only had them a couple of months. So, I would only recommend this boot for walking the dog - and only then if not walking the dog over rocky ground, stick to gentle moorland and meadows. … Read Full Review

“good and bad like the curates egg”

Written on: 04/07/2012 by Dorca (1 review written)

They look good, I like the traditional look and brown leather style. old fashioned retro look. People in my walking club said that brasher boots are really comfy to wear immediately, however, I have not found this so. I found quite uncomfortable blisters and this has happened after several miles of walking. They are well constructed and breathable. Must agree with previous reviewer that not good grip on wet surface. They polish up nice though and I am all in favour of the English boot… Read Full Review

“Wish I'd found these reviews before I bought these boots”

Written on: 25/02/2012

I'd had a pair of Brasher Hillmasters in the past and they were good apart from a crease at flex point and a cracked rand but I'd had them about 12 years so couldn't grumble. So I bought another pair. BIG mistake. Blisters, cramped feet, no grip on wet or icy surfaces, just CAN'T seem to get them to break in. Then got given a not-very-much used pair of Neebees - instantly comfortable - regretted having paid £110 for the Brashers! However the sole on one of the Neebees has just detached… Read Full Review

“I found Brasher boots to be a bad mistake ”

Written on: 19/01/2012

After 7 years of regular walking with my Peter Storm boots they looked a bit worse for wear. I bought a pair of Brasher Hillmaster GTX walking boots because they looked like a good strong pair of walking boots for my frequent outings with the ramblers. I wore them around the house for 4 days and they seemed comfortable around the house. On my first outing after about 1 mile my heels starting hurting but I thought it's the process of breaking in some new boots and I should bear with it and walk… Read Full Review

“Hillmaster Boot Heel Blisters”

Written on: 04/12/2011 by gunnershaw (1 review written)

Bought these boots because they looked very similar to my old Wainrights which fitted like slippers and gave me good service for many years. How wrong I was. Just been up Wetherlam and they have shredded the skin off my heels. They started rubbing after the first mile and I applied plasters to the hot spots but to no avail. I was also a bit dissapointed with the amount of grip. I shall try to wear them in by walking short distances locally but if they don't improve within the next few outings… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/03/2011 by geordie33 (5 reviews written)

I bought a pair of Hillmasters at a very good price of £65.I thought these were the boots I currently use and like very much-turned out my existing boots are Hillwalkers.I have only done a couple of short walks in them-4 miles or so.They are nothing like as comfortable as my Hillwalkers and feel very heavy to me which I found surprising.Cannot imaging doing 12miles+ in them-not such a bargain after all… Read Full Review
