I can recommend the ones I and her ladyship have used for years made by Karrimor their MOUNT model.
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Karrimor-W...keywords=karrimor+shoes&qid=1616595628&sr=8-7
Wear them everyday as general footwear and also for walking. Light and waterproof I have three pairs on the go at any one time.
Her ladyship and I just back from a hill hike and dismayed at all the fly tipping going on in the Countryside and also passed by a mountain of green waste that has been dumped on a farm field edge without the farmer knowing.
He was there with Enviroment Agency trying to establish where its come from. :(

Ive had a few pairs of Karrimor in the past and the soul falls of them after a while i pay a bit more for my boots now buy cheap buy twice.
Got to agree with you there, I’ve tried Karrimor and they didn’t last long.
I personally have Asollo, North Face and Salomon but there’s loads of good one’s out there.

I probably do a lot more footwork than you Mal or been unlucky with the four pair's that fell to bits within 12 months of heavy use.
As said they are my only footwear and are worn every day.
I do rotate the pairs I have as that must help but get a good six month use from each pair I have.
Wearing out the soles then replace them :)

I must admit Ive only used the Karrimor hiking boots and used them for detecting considering the price i cant really complain but after using 3/4 pairs the sole has come loose and now my personal choice is too spend a bit more on a better quality boot,

I am forever scraping the soil on iffy signals i guess that doesn't help.

One thing I never do is use my walking footwear for detecting :)
I have AirSafe metal free waterproof boots for that with composite reinforced soles as my Karrimors would soon deteriorate with the digging :) They last about one year detecting

Army issue boots for my detecting, a good make though made by Meindl for use in Iraq and Afghanistan, very light, lots of support and very comfortable. there were loads on EBay when I got mine and very cheap. I’ve been using the same boots for five years now and in normal times I’m out four or five times a week so they’ve had loads of hard use.

Normally i dont need to walk very far as i get my exercise detecting nearly everyday atm i am using my detecting boots/hiking boots for walking and detecting and will continue to do so,

How often you get out detecting one pair should last 10 years its too wet its too dry :D

Ive just bought this for the wife it should be ideal for monitoring her progress sometimes we will only be doing a hour power walking the heart rate monitor will be ideal for us to keep things in check.

Blimey they wasn't released while 15/04/2020 they should look after things lol.
They started release a few years ago to compete with the Apple watches the ones I returned were the 2 versions if I remember right.
Probably end of 2019 when I was last down at Bournemouth on a few beach hunts :)
Not been there since 27/12/19 was last video hunt :(
