Boot review: Sidi Canyon Gore

Sidi Canyon Gore, £164.99
Miles covered/time: 2500/one month
What’s good? I have lived in these boots for the last two and a half weeks, you know the moment you put something on and it immediately feels comfortable, well that was my experience with the Canyon Gore.
I wanted a pair of boots for touring around New Zealand where the weather is very unpredictable. Lined with a Gore-tex membrane my feet never got wet once, and I was out for some prolonged periods.
Made from top quality leather they are nice and supple with a good amount of protection in the shin, heel and toe without sacrificing comfort. Simple to put on, with a Velcro side closure and micrometric buckle across the front.
Another reason for me to choose the Canyon Gore over other boots was the sole – anti slip rubber, commando-style, perfect for walking up a muddy track to see the view without going base over apex!
What’s not? I have not found anything yet, but I will let you know if I do!
