Customer Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very stylish and comfortable footwear. I bought a pair 5 months ago to replace two previous pairs of Kathmandu Hillary boots that I'm progressively wearing out but can't replace with more Hillary boots. These Desert boots are a very good replacement. Being light-weight and suited to a slightly wider foot, they're very comfortable for all-day walking/work. They make an excellent cross-over for transition between a professional office/meeting environment and fieldwork. Whilst the Desert boot can handle some punishment they're probably a bit too dressy for regular work in the bush.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Casual Good simple looking shoes. Could do with more grip but they have a comfortable sole. I recommend conditioning the leather to get a lot of life out of them. Happy purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort plus I bought these for my husband, who struggles to find comfortable shoes that fit. He is also a diabetic, so has foot issues. He has said these are the most comfortable shoes he has ever owned. Dressy enough to wear to work with chinos, as well as wear with jeans on the weekends. If they came in another colour, would buy them too!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lovely looking but no grip Worst boots I have ever worn for grip - in two days I have slipped twice, the first time on wet tiles and the second time on a damp footpath. This is all within central/suburban Auckland so I'm not sure what conditions the sole is designed for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable I bought these as an everyday pair of boots. They are extremely comfortable and a good fit. Slightly wider in the foot than other shoes which is great for me as I have a wider foot. Good sturdy sole that provides plenty of support. Can walk around in them all day without a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looks and so comfortable This is my second pair and the quality has been consistently excellent. I would recommend these to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite pair of shoes! These boots have become my favourite of shoes since I bought them about 3 months ago. The boots are so comfortable, I wear them everywhere; from casual Fridays at work in Australia to trekking through Indonesia. The only maintenance these boots need is a regular wipe down and application of natural wax for waterproofing. A few reviewers appear to have had problems with the quality of the boots, but I don't understand how as the boots that I bought are excellent quality that show no signs of wear after 3 months of regular use. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ideal urban walking boot I bought these boots for a specific visit to Japan. The trip involved some light hiking and lots of street walking so I was looking for a bit of an “all rounder”. I found these boots to be the ideal partner. They were light, comfortable and warm. The inner lining kept my feet dry and refreshed even after a fourteen hour day. One word of warning, they can be a little slippy on wet tiles!
