‘The innovative, lightweight double-boot construction might seem gimmicky, but the result is a cracking all-round hiking mid’ with distinctive looks’
Outdoors Magic: Deceptively comfortable, grippy Vibram sole, net fit, super fast drying, light, liner can be used as hut slippers, very ‘Arc’teryx’
Outdoors Tragic: Price, distinctive looks divide opinion, a faff to take on and off.
Outdoors Grabbit? The concept of a lightweight boot with a removable liner made from synthetics that don’t absorb water might sound gimmicky, but in practice it works really well. The stretchy, Gore-Tex foam liner is super comfortable even with thin socks, the fit is neat and precise and there’s decent grip and cushioning. They are a little fiddly to take on and off, but the removable liner conveniently doubles as a hut slipper. We like them.
