I bought my pair from REI in case I needed to return them. I'd have preferred a pair without gore tex, but it was fun to splash through water without drying out. I was worried that the description for "hill walking" indicated something tamer than what I intended, but they're English, so I took it as understatement.
The fit is wider in the toe box than the narrowly spaced eyelets suggest. I'm a size D or E and was fine. My foot/toes swell during the day, so I usually get a half size larger than a casual shoe. I did that in this case. The arch was in the right place, too.
Off trail these did what boots should do. On the trail they are fine the first day or two and then quite comfortable.
This review is written only after five days with a 25lb or less pack. The durability is unknown, but so far so good.
If you have troublesome ankles or hike off trail with a pack and fear inversion, this is a great boot with little or no weight penalty.
