Topic - B1 boot advice please

alexgoodey on 26 Sep 2013
Hi peeps

I currently own a pair of Karrimor Coniston eVent boots for hillwalking which are very comfy but the structure is steadily degrading and the support is gradually decreasing, so I'm starting to think about the next steps - new boots and winter walking.

I am thinking about a B1 boot that'll last me from where I am now, an ML trainee, to where I hope to be in five years, an ML(W) holder.

I don't have a huge budget, so any ideas below 200 would be preferred - also, as I'm in Snowdonia regularly and occasionally pop into the Ellis Brigham discount store - feel free to include any older models which they might still have in stock (this is surprisingly common as I'm size 12)

I would prefer to have a single pair of boots suitable for all season use in the UK, fairly light, but stiff enough for basic crampons and supportive. It'll need to comfortable for 4-5 days wear at a time.

Over to you, hill sages... Thanks in advance!
