Good boots with bad laces.
I own three different Haix boots and i highly value their allround quality but I am very dissappointed with the lacing system. These quick release system that they use worked only for about two-three months and then they failed. On all my Haix boots. The lacing system was only a part of the reason why i bought them but it was a big one.
All in all these boots are really good and light and you can see that the building quality is very high. I would buy them again but i hope that they fix the lacing system.
So I tried a few other brands over the years, but these Nepals are excellent, don't know how anyone has given them less than 5 stars.
They're very comfy, I wear them every day and they take some serious punishment. I've just ordered a new pair because the other pair are 3.5 years old and looking tired. That said I've ordered some new laces as they have now broken but the boots are still waterproof and should last another few years for knocking around the yard.
Fast delivery to the UK. One of the most comfortable and waterproof boots I have ever used. A quality boot made in Europe.Weiterlesen
Brilliant, comfy, aesthetic and high quality
Very nice and comfortable straight out of the box. They feel very springy as I walk and are quick and easy to pull on and remove. A tiny bit snug, so I would advise buying a size up if you're going to wear thick socks (I wear size 45, so no thick socks for me)
The only cons are the lock-down lace loops which aren't a drawback overall, but will take some getting used to, and the leather is very water absorbant. Being the maverick I am, I've put several layers of brown boot polish into the leather to give it a layer of waterproofing and turn it from coyote to a more fashion-neutral tobacco-brown.
I'm English so I tend to lean towards a critical review, so do not take my descriptions as negatives, merely things to be aware of. These are arguably the best boots I've ever owned. I would highly recommend them and I look forward to taking them up into the mountains.
