Fatty Tim I tried a pair on recently in Keswick and was seriously impressed especially by the price of £350! Thats said the Forest is probably what I'd go for which is about £210. They felt great and if my current and new boots don't work out I'll get some. I did go up a size to get comfy. I'm a size 10 which is just over a 44 and the size 45 fitted very well.
