Product Review: Aldi Touring Boots (£29.99)

What’s good about the Aldi Touring Boots?

The value for money! If you need a pair of boots to keep your feet warm and dry, but don’t have a lot of money, then these are just the ticket. They’re light and easy to put on, with a zip up the inside of the leg that is covered over with a Velcro-style (hook and loop) flap to keep the weather out. Both sides of the ankle are well protected by padded inserts on both sides. 3M light-reflective panels adorn both sides and the rear of the boots; it’s always good to be seen at night. The rubber soles give good grip both on and off the bike. The lining and insole are by Invista, the lining is breathable and transports moisture away from your feet. These are a sound pair of cheap boots.

And what’s not?

When I first put them on, the seam across the top of my foot dug in a bit, but this settled down with use. Stock of Aldi kit often runs out, but there were still some in MCN’s local store as this review went to press (summer 2016).
