Bodmin Low 4 Ladies Weathertite Low Rise Hiking Boots UK Review
Thanks for taking the time to read our UK review of the Bodmin Low 4 Ladies Weathertite Low Rise Hiking Boots. The manufacturer uses the term boots when they named these.
We believe that these really should be classed as walking shoes or hiking shoes as they are not really in the boot style. Now to be fair they do refer to these as "low rise."
That simply means that they do not come up and over the ankle as most boots do. They are still suitable for walking and hiking, but we don't believe they are boots in the true sense of the word.
All that said there are certainly plenty of buyers for these Bodmin branded boots. Bodmin do form part of the Karrimor brand, and we have included some information on that just below in our review.
At the moment that various online buyers rate these hiking boots highly with an overall and average 88% buyer satisfaction. They are popular for a number of reasons.
Those look well, have a good choice of colours and that they are from the very well known and trusted Karrimor brand, who specialise in this type of hiking boot.
They are made from a suede/mesh material which keeps the water out and still allows the boots to breathe so as your feet don't sweat. The inner material is interesting in that it helps keep water out, but also allows your feet to breathe.
They so have very comfortable cushioning and a flat sole with good grip.
You can see an image of these just below.
Karrimor Hiking Boots Brand
The Karrimor brand began back in 1946 and was founded by a group of people called Charles Parsons, Mary Parsons and Grace Davies. Karrimor started by selling hand-sewed cotton-duck cycle pannier bags.
