Went to local shop in Plymouth. Got a pair of old Meindl Borneo's fancied a lightweight pair of boots for scrambling around on rock etc, asked for some advice, fantastic service had feet measured and advised best sizing, etc. Looked at North Face, Salomon & liked the look of the Garmont. I have wider feet so North Face & Salomon came up a little narrow. Tried on the Garmonts, great fit, really adjustable with down to the toe lacing. Fitted like a glove, although you must try them on as sizings can vary a little. tried a 9 1/2 in the Vetta Hike great fit, however Tower Lite I needed a 10. Very light boots, comfortable from the start, quite a firm sole with not too much flex, no hotspots, already done 10 miles in them straight out the box, now got to see how waterproof they are. Mind you, that won't take long at the moment.
