If you are looking for a walking boot that will cope with the wettest and roughest of landscapes, then the Anatom Men's Q2 Classic Hiking Comfort boot will do you. Anatom boots were founded in Scotland by Gordon Fraser a land familiar with extreme weather and rugged landscapes. In that Bonny land, all their footwear is tried and tested in all conditions, that is why they are happy to offer a lifetime guarantee on their products.
The upper of the Men's Q2 is full-grain leather, that means you get pretty much the same skin as was on the animal, tough and thoroughly weatherproof. It will cope with walking through the burns and kicking rocks and slogging your way through scratchy heather and freezing snow. The Anatom Q2 offers full ankle support, which also guards against any debris entering the boot.
A pair of size 45 (EU) boots weigh 1.4kg, that's quite weighty but not as heavy as some brands. You do get a good depth Vibram Outsole with deep lugs that are well spaced. This outsole will shield your feet from feeling all the 'lumps and bumps' of rocky ground which can be quite wearing, giving you a good solid footbed and the lugs provide confidence on wet slippery ground.
The tr.aria microporous membrane is designed to keep moisture out while letting your feet breath, so helping to keep your feet dry. I would not particularly recommend these boots for hot dry weather walking they could be very tiring, but if you fancy the Cairngorms this winter - then you will not go wrong with a pair of Anatom Q2 Classic Comfort Hiking boots.
Good all year round footwear that is at home on a low-level trail or taken up the hills and mountains. Designed to cope with the worst of weather they have a fully waterproof and breathable membrane. The Vibram Grivola outsole is used for great traction on uneven surfaces. With a soft and comfy nubuck collar, you should pack in a few miles with these.
