I recently bought a pair of these in the Durham store, many thanks to the lady who assisted me and remained patient while I tried numerous other boots on. I purchased these to replace a pair of Miendl Burma Pro's which had began to leak after 5 years of abuse. I thought those were comfortable until I tried these, to be honest when the store assistant suggested I try the Rangers I wasn't keen, I thought that they would be a bit to soft and flexible for what I needed them for, however, the assistant assured me that they would be fine. I'm glad I listened, I tried them on in store and they were immediately comfortable, I also tried the SL's but I could not get them to fit around the heel properly. These fitted well and just felt right, I wore them today on an 8 miler up Buckden Pike they were extremely comfortable even though this was the first proper walk I have used them on, I have replaced the insole on mine with an orthotic gel one as I found the original made my feet run hot, other than that I cannot fault the boots. Perfect!
