Wore them for 10 days in Spain. Took two months to recover from the blisters
Nicely made. Leather inside and out and definitely waterproof now they've stopped putting the 'Brasher' label right through the Goretex liner, and the latest pair have reverted to the much easier to thread bootlace eyes.
Thought this third pair would be as good as the first two pairs - which I wore on long treks straight out of the box without a hitch. Managed a mile and a half before retiring with bad blisters and the need to buy some sandals to wear for the rest of what was supposed to be a spring weekend in the lakes. The ten day trip to the Sierra Nevada became an agony of trying to find a solution for walking with outsize blisters. Nothing really helped and it took over two months for my feet to finally recover. They must have changed the last - and mangled up the heel cup. It simply doesn't fit.
Brasher - stop messing about with successful lasts. You did not need to improve them, and you've actually done just the opposite. Now I have to find another style for my feet and I'm not happy.
