I have never heard of them before but on first impressions they look quite a sweaty boot. If for detecting then fully composite boots would be a better option as the steel shank may cause falsing. 8-|

I've had a pair for a couple of years, and find them quite comfortable. They are my second string when it is not quite wet enough for wellies. That is when you are not actually wading.

I do use good thermal socks because they can be quite chilly in the mornings. Following another thread, the laces do stay done up when double knotted.

I haven't had a problem with falsing due to the metal plate and it does make digging more comfortable than with wellies. The soles are advertised as being less mud retentive, but mine seem to collect as much clag as anything else.

If you do decide to buy check the sizing as I think the sellers recommend getting the same size as your shoe size. This was ok in my case.

Are they any better than other boots? .. Dunno

I’ve had a pair for around 2 years with no problems, I prefer them to wellies.

They look pretty good. I'm not sure about the laces in that rock pool picture though, it looks like he dropped his spag bol dinner on his foot! x;
