The Explorer Trek Plus from Berghaus are popular for good reason. Fully waterproofed with the most proven liner, GORE-TEX, so your feet will always be dry, (just so long as the stream you're wading through doesn't come over the top of your boot!).
Any good fabric boot should be comfortable from the minute you get them out of the box, and the Explorer led the way setting this standard.
Comfort shouldn't come at the cost of poor performance, and the Explorers certainly don't disappoint when you're out on the trail or trudging across muddy fells where their OPTI-STUD® outsole gives you all the traction you need up hill and down dale.
The Explorer Trek Plus is also on the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Recommended Kit List, so if you're wanting to equipping someone you care about, you know they'll be safe in the Explorer.
