Zamberlan Women's Ultra Lite GTX Features:
The Zamberlan Women's Ultra Lite GTX is a lightweight leather walking boot with a Women's specific last. The Gore-Tex lining guarantees 100% waterproofing making the boot ideal for all conditions. A Vibram Star Lite Sole provides excellent support and traction whilst the full grain leather upper provides a durability. For fell walking and hiking the Zamberlan Women's Ultra Lite GTX provides support whilst still flexing at the sole for a comfortable, walking action.
Super comfortable Italian made boots from Zamberlan, they feel quality. Theya re very light, and feel quite bouncy underfoot. I have narrow ankles/heels and often suffer from heel slip but not with these. The fit is great and the laces tighten really nicely and securely. Some size advice - I am a UK 6 EU 39, and needed a EU 40 in these boots which is equivalent to a UK 6, not necessarily because they run small, but because the sizing label is different in these boots. To clarify, the label inside reads EURO 40, USA MAN 6 & USA WMNS 8 (USA Mens sizes are effectively true to UK shoe sizes).
The only reason I have given these boots a 4 and not a 5 star rating is because the soles don't feel as grippy on wet ground as my previous boots & shoes, maybe they just need to settle in but it's just something I'm conscious of for now.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend LD Mountain Centre, and I will shop again.
This is my third pair of Zamberlan Women's Ultra Lite GTX, which will wait in the cupboard until required. My husband and I walk many miles both at home and abroad, including long distance trails, the last being the foothills of Annapurna. I have never had a blister, even having walked for 15 miles in new boots. Thank you.
