A few days ago I have order from Amazon.co.uk one pair of Karrimor Mens Meridian Low eVent Hiking Shoes. I have investigate allot these days about the best hiking shoe I can get for a decent price and I came across Karrimor Mens Meridian Low eVent Hiking Shoes. In the product description is specified that use waterproof, breathable membranes in its footwear to keep water from entering whilst allowing water vapor (sweat) to escape. All these together in other hiking shoes take the shoe over 100 pounds/euro/usd but for my surprise I get it for £31.99. Supper price having in mind that Amazon is offering a 56% discount from the original price of £72.
These morning I receive the shoes and I was extremely pleased about the quality of the show, the quality of the materials and the finishing. This is an cheap, reasonably light (555 gms for a single size 9) waterproof (eVent lining) shoe with a solid Vibram sole and a moderately aggressive tread (far more gripper than a normal trainer). The chassis has some twist to it, the heel has a high protective band, the rand / toe are well covered and the innersole can be removed. All in all, I rate this an excellent choice for those interested in lightweight hiking but are on a budget. I had a previous pair from the Karrimor range and was equally delighted with them. No hot spots nor sweating good grip with the “vibram” soles installs confidence in ones walking.
