AlainaDalton's review of Mountain Warehouse Field Waterproof Boots

★★★★☆

“Time will tell...”

Written on: 04/03/2018 by AlainaDalton (1 review written)

I have had a pair each of rubbish boots & shoes from MW (McLeod) - on the other hand, their 'Extreme' gear is pretty good, often being made in the same factory as the upmarket brands & differing only in the badging.
So this time I went for the 'Field' boots, at the lower end of the Extreme range (Made in China, the more expensive ones are made in Bulgaria or Romania). They have Vibram soles, & as the uppers are mainly fabric, require no breaking in. So far, I have been pleased with them.
The waterproofing has been OK. Some reviewers forget - or are not aware - that both fabric & leather boots need reproofing at regular intervals. Comfort has been great, but for the price a set of insoles would be nice. The full RRP is a penny off £140! But they are often available at half that.

Well, I'm the original poster, under the name of AlainaDalton. Just returned from a rather damp walking holiday in North Wales.
The boots leaked, around the top of the front 'bumper'. Not what I expect from a pair of boots whose RRP is £140 - & I have kept up the reproofing with the recommended spray.
A pity - they are comfortable, a nice, wide fitting, even the laces have not worn - but I will be returning them for another pair or refund.

Following the above, later noticed a split in the right hand boot , at the RH side of the front bumper. As well as the one on the top of the LH one. Suede and underlying layer gone through. Very disappointed as they have not been used for serious walking - just some coastal paths. Have returned them for a new pair.
Other points - the Vibram soles are very slippy on some surfaces.
