These boots aren’t made for walkin’…

Posted by on November 25th 2009 in TKMaxx

These Karrimor Snow Fur boots are so roasty-toasty that my feet would probably parboil if I wore them for a decent walk. As footwear for being out in the cold doing more sedentary stuff, however, they're excellent. I wore them all night long a few nights ago while out using the scope, and didn't feel the cold at all despite getting the outsides of them thoroughly wet due to the dew on the long grass of the lawn. They're a fine pairing with the Astrobreeks so long as nobody's looking!

Here's a cut&paste of the text from the 2009 Karrimor Footwear Catalogue:

  • Uppers utilising top quality waterproof, stain-resistant leathers; using Karrimor’s exclusive weathertite® waterproof and breathable laminate bootie lining and Thinsulate™ insulated fabrics for comfort in cold, wet conditions.
  • Added fit benefits of asymmetrical lateral tongue post, and internal pockets and pads for added comfort, fit and support.
  • Moulded Shell design for better traction in soft snow

If you feel the urge to get some for yourself, they're being sold off super-cheap at TKMaxx.

 

They seem suitable for use in a boat while trout and salmon fishing, where there's no room for walking about to warm the feet. I'll have to wait until next spring to test that theory.

Here you go - a much better piccy of the Mantas, primarily because this pair have been liberated from TKMaxx and are now taking refuge in our house.

:mrgreen:

Well, it would have been stupid to have ignored such a bargain.

So, who's in need of some quality B2-rated winter boots? If you've got small feet, this may interest you...

TKMaxx are flogging Scarpa Manta M4s at rock-bottom prices. The Atherstone branch had UK Size 5 @ £58 and UK Size 4 @ £39.

I've had a good look at them and can't find any faults. Sorry the pics are naff, but I only had the phone's camera and the lens is screwed.
