Ok, they are expensive, but I have killed 3 pairs of quality brand boots in 2 years. I ended up re commissioning my 25 year old Lundhags so decided maybe time to get another somewhat nicer pair. In truth I would have preferred the Jaure 11 Mid LT but couldn’t find any so opted for the Jaure 11 mid. Yes they are a sophisticated “old school” boot that requires more care perhaps than some modern boots, but they took little breaking in, are comfortable, keep my feet warm and dry in our British mud plugging winter terrain. I have a very high instep and was worried the high start point for the laces would cause a problem, but once I got the right balance of socks and two stage tensioning on lacing they are fine. Had them a couple weeks now & probably done around 50 km in them. They are good to wear, have good traction even in slippy mud, have good foot protection even on the soles and personally I like the relatively high ankle support. I have only rated 4 stars rather than 5 because they are on the heavy side at 860gm/boot and because there are no lace lock hooks on the tongue to help variable tension lacing. Minor but important points for a sophisticated expensive boot. Having said that, if they last beyond 2 years as I am confident they will, they will prove to be an excellent investment.
Parhaat vaelluskengät joita olen omistanut. Tilava lesti, sopivan jäykkä pohja ultraheavy rinkan kantoon. Hinnakkaat kyllä, mutta useamman sadan km:n kokemuksella hintansa väärtti.
Askel kuin kuninkaallisella
Jalkineiden muotoutumiseen jalkaan kestää hetken. Ainoat maasto-./työjalkineet, jotka pitää vettä. Työstäni johtuen käytän jalkineita 10-12 tuntia päivittäin. Askelia kertyy n. 18.000-30.000/pv. Jalat pysyvät kuivina. En enää muita jalkineita tule käyttämään! Voin suositella.
